On Saturday, we made a stop to pick up some "feeder" fish or "mosquito" fish. The lady at the pet store, bagged 6 for us, and then we realized one wasn't moving. So, she got another bag and caught 2 in the net. She gave us the extra fish free. We brought them home and floated the bags in the water container for a while hoping to get the temperature of the water in the bag closer to that in the water container.
We released the fish.
Sunday morning, we found one floating. So, we're at 6 fish.
Our area has a frost advisory for tonight. This has been a crazy spring. We hit 100 degrees Mother's Day weekend and tonight we're suppose to be down to 35 degrees. I moved all the small containers into the garage and sat clay pots over as many other tender plants as I could including the pepper and tomato plants in the vegetable garden. If we do get frost, I'm planning to spray water on the plants I couldn't cover in the morning. I also watered a lot today and my wonderful husband helped me mulch a lot of areas.
