OK, this is something that one of you lovely readers mentioned in a comment recently. Making a galvanized trough into a water pond.
I would love a pond at the farm, but realistically, that's a ways off, too much other immediate stuff to do. BUT...if I could find one of these round water troughs, this could be done pretty easily. I even have a spot I'd love to put it, on the front corner of the porch (on the ground) where the two stairs come off from each direction. There is even readily available electricity coming off the porch so I could aerate it or add a fountain or bubbler. This photo will inspire me when the time comes.
