    Fruitless Mulberry Tree

    TurtulasLen taught me that if you prune it back heavily during dormancy there won't be any fruit next year. And, guess what? He's right!!

    Pond filtration

    I have a 600 gallon water trough for a snapping turtle. It is filtered using a Skippy filter, which is similar to yours. My filter is powered by a 1hp dirty water sump pump I buy at Harbor Freight for slightly less than $100 (Amazon sells them too). I run it 24/7/365. When it wears out I just...
