Right about this time of year, our team here at POND Trade starts planning articles for the year ahead. As I was sitting back forming a list (oh yes — I love my lists!), an idea came to me. We get so many requests for information through our website in response to our articles. The inquiries cover all kinds of topics, including bog filtration and undergravel filtration, just to name a few.

In fact, we have received so many questions about overwintering ponds that we are revisiting the topic in this issue. More on that below. But I thought I would reiterate that we are always looking for feedback and topic suggestions. So, if you have a topic you’d love to learn more about, even if we have written about it recently, please let us know — after all, this magazine is for you! Just send me an email at llgelles@pondtrademag.com.

We’re also delving into the culinary world in this issue with a delicious article about edible pond plants (article here). Zac and Nancy deGarmeaux will excite your palate with their guide on planting and eating lotus, watercress and much more around your pond.

• On the sales front, Laura Reale introduces you to the world of CRM (article here), or customer relationship management software, which has helped her company make an extra $150,000 this year so far.

• Also, our regular contributor Kent Wallace has an exciting tale (article here) of when he worked on a pond construction episode of the popular TV show “Tanked.” (Video Preview here)

• Finally, if you haven’t heard yet, our 2017 POND Trade Water Artisans of the Year (form page here) contest is now open, so start putting your submissions together. All entries must be received by Nov. 1. For more information, visit www.pondtrademag.com/2017-water-artisans-of-the-year to enter.
