Flower Power Oooh la, la. We have not just one but TWO articles about plants in the July /August 2024 issue. If you know me personally, you know that I’m really into flower gardening. I have a huge garden that I love to tend to. Back when I was initially looking into acquiring POND Trade […]

POND Trade May /June 2024

May / June 2024

The pond community is alive and well I’ve had the privilege of being on several pond-related business trips as of late.

September / October 2023

Pumkin Spice When these words are spoken too soon, they are actually cringeworthy! As I write this column, we are still in the throws of summer, and it’s not something I want to think about. In the midwest, summer is a treasure, and we live life to the fullest in the summer! But by the […]

May / June 2023

Sn­­akes on a Plane? No — snakes on the cover of the May / June POND Trade issue! Full disclosure: I am deathly afraid of “my nemesis” (yes, snakes), but seeing that you can find them in yards on every continent except for Antarctica, it’s a really important topic to get across to our readers. […]
