Here's a photo of our pond that I thought I would share with the group. Took our first plunge today 4/19, which was very chilly for Central Maine. It's spring fed and goes about 12 ft deep in the middle. I am hoping to get some fish in there this summer. Any ideas, brook trout maybe? Sunnies? Also, have any suggestions for plants i can grow around the edge, and should I cut back the trees that are coming up along the sides?

Hmm. Northern climate - pond - plants around the edges.

First thought that comes to my mind is wild rice.

A 1# bag of it at the health food store should keep you supplied for life.

Thanks John!

I too was thinking of wild rice. I have consumed a fair amount of Maine grown wild rice and would love to have it as a staple here on our land.

Yeah. It gets pretty pricey in the markets for a staple.
