INTRO:

Welcome to Kingman, Arizona, we are in the Northwest corner, Zone 7. It is a great place to live and time has really flown since I started this website. I've had many ponds, they have come and gone. Gone is our big one as shown on the pond page. I got tired of it never being clear enough to see the fish, the water evaporation, the UV light not quite cutting it, nor the koi unpotting every pot in the pond that they could. I also got tired of replacing the UV light one year and the pump the next. My waterfall sprung a leak on the bottom of the 2' deep stack of flagstone and cement and I gave up. As of March 2015, I no longer have any ponds. We put in a chicken coop and got chickens. They are much more fun and they give us eggs. I am leaving my site up for now because I do have some great information like how to build a filter.

We put a greenhouse in the yard in the fall of 2009. Steve and my son, Bryan built it. It is a 10'x12' greenhouse from Harbor Freight. We put two heat lamps in it during the winter and we put insulation on the North wall. Steve put three bars of conduit for stabilization and I have cheap fabric attached to it over the plant areas for shade. So far so good, this last winter I lost a couple of aloes that were too close to the South side of the building, but everything else is fine. I have a lemon and a lime tree that also over winter inside the greenhouse.

So, sit a spell and cruise through my site to see what we had and now have. I have ideas for recycling, building filters to flower beds and lots of pictures of my old pond and gardens, with a bit of art and quilting on the side.
