krazy koati

And left to my own devices I probably would

The plan of building a PVC net for the goldfish pond started out kind of complicated, with the idea of a couple trapezoidal frames that'd have mesh wrapped around them. We've simplified this a couple times over to a set of nets tied to free-standing poles that can be folded or wrapped up. The big thing I've learned trying this: the hose clamps we picked for this take a lot of boring fiddly screwing and unscrewing, and nets are really pains to stretch out and fold and roll on purpose. We hope to have a workable net set up in the next couple days.
