We went to fetch our new (second hand) TLB today. Very Happy bounce bounce bounce
So on Monday we can start digging the first set of 15 mud ponds. The mud ponds will be 8mx25mx1.2m deep and in a yellow/ reddish clay field where the clay bank is 4m+ deep. The development are planed for 40 mud ponds of this size and the two original mud ponds of 12 million liters and 5 million liters. The water source will be from the three constantly flowing fountains on the farm. This will all so be the venue for our harvest days. We also plan our first Koi show here on the farm to start our own chapter named The Kouga Chapter. Still need to contact Chris Neves to find out how we can start a chapter and if it will be allowed. For now we just hope everything work out the way we planned it and will jump to work first thing Monday.

How much did that machine cost?
We brought some chinese people to set up a tilapia breeding ponds on our farm...They came on sunday...
We had big caterpillars...but sold them last year...maybe to get a small one like that?
