I don't know why they all posted like that. Few more picture of my shade garden and the bog area that collects runoff water.

Yes I am a male and the funny things is I don't have a vegetable garden of any kind but the wife has been wanting one for some time. Much easier to go to the farmers market and buy what is needed. Might be a project for next summer.

Hobby before wife vegetable seeds are way cheaper than ornamental plants.

I know what you were saying. And I was the one using metaphors.

I was saying it tongue and cheek not taking any offense to what you said.

Seems that L. Sediodes needs to be planted in clay only and should be kept with Koi...

If you can find a way to isolate it from the fish.

They generally don't recommend putting any plants with koi but I like both so I don't get too concerned with that. If they munch on some here and there that's the price you pay putting plants in a pond with koi. For the most part they leave them alone but do tend to eat on the roots of some of the plants. I have yet to order the L. sediodes yet but plan on trying it. I do have a few areas that I can keep most of the larger koi away from so may try placing it there.

On another note I have 6 koi less than I had last year. No bodies or signs of dead fish at all. So I would have to assume a critter has taken them from the pond. Either a neighborhood cat or raccoon. I may have to put out my live trap again and see what is roaming around in the dark. Last year I removed several possums and a raccoon.
