It has been very warm and the Monsoon has jet to arrive.
I have finished the deck around the trough, it just needs some trim.
The fish are doing really good and I am very pleased how the peppers have developed. Watching the pond system was interesting., first I had string algae developing, than it vanished, the better the system worked.
Than an other algae developed and it starts to vanish, too.
The little pond system had become a attraction for birds. I have at least 40 birds and 10 different species that come to it for water.

Basically have finished the snake proof fish tank, including its little waterfall.
Plants and fish are doing very well. Will start harvesting the first peppers this week.
This little set up has become a animal paradise, birds, chipmunks, squirrels and so on.
The animals are not afraid of me or my dogs.
Naturally the squirrels and chipmunks were not good for the strawberries and cantaloupe. But than it is up to me to find away, to grow what I like and keep them out.
Next year. I can not believe it is already end of August.
2 more month and winter will arrive.
What a ugly thought.
But anyhow this has been a rather good year for this system, compared to last year.

We are getting ever closer to winter and as usual our weather in the 4 corners goes wild.

Sunday we had 19 C and than in the late afternoon the cold front came in.
Strong cold northern winds, barometer and temps dropped like a rock. We made over 30 C difference in 3 hours.
That's shock freezing, from 19 C to -12 C in 3 hours.
Today we made a balmy 0C. It will get even colder and around Wednesday we will get below -20C. Than a heat wave will come with wooping 10C during the day.
So it was time to winterize the outside fish tanks. shut of the pump, drain the pipes, suck them dry with a vacuum and get the stocktank heaters going.

"Holy crap Batman", I thought we had wild weather, but that is extreme.

Yes, that was extrem. But the winds are supposed to turn today, from North to West, which means it will warm up some.
By Friday we should get day time temps around 10-12 degree, with mild night frost around -4.
Low winds, which is rather welcome. 40kmh winds at -20, in the morning, makes it rather unpleasant.

It was a good test for my new jacket. It is heated, power source is a 12V rechargeable battery.
Put that one on, than slip into the insulated coverall and than it is nice and warm, cover nose and ears and ready to go to feed the live stock.
