We have had some troubles with the pond. The string algae has been out of control and we have fought continually to destroy it, but at one point it really took over. We are just starting to get a handle on the string algae now, but I don’t have a lot of hope for a clean clear pond this fall. Maybe next year our efforts will bear fruit.
It didn’t look too bad the day I took these photos. Sort of brighter and cleaner. It’s been hard to feed the fish with the string algae blocking off access points, so I’ve been missing my time there. Hopefully in a few days there will be enough open water that I can try to feed them again.
