Re: barley pads

Hi Ceres,
Yeah, they helped, but should be in the pond right after the first algae
bloom, which should be early to mid spring.  The barley ball, water lilies
and water hyacinth tend to keep my pond quite clear.  My pond is about 2000
gallons, but needs the mud etc. cleaned off the bottom.  Rich in Z-5 where
it was 95 degrees and 450% humidity today.
