Another spring fish auction has come and gone and I am absolutly wiped out. I took many more bags then I usually do this time it looked like everyone else did too.
We had over 720 items that we auctioned off...it took almost 7 hours. Crazy times. I worked the check in/out table this year and it was just non stop with items to be entered into the computer.
The prices were not as high as the spring auction last year and there were some real deals to be had. I picked up a co2 regulator for $24 dollars that I am super excited about. I also got some spixi snails and a pearly occie. I thought I had pearly occies....turns out they are black occies. Oops.
All in all a good time was had by all. I am pretty sure I made enough money to pay for my pond expansion this year, which is all I was really going for. It would be nice if the fish hobby paid for itself, or at least funded itself somewhat! I am, however, glad there isn't another auction till fall though, any sooner might kill me. What a day.
I am hoping today to get some eggplant seeds started. I am also going to get some parsley seeds soaking to get them started out tomorrow.
It's nice enough today that I have the windows open...which really, really makes me want to go plant something in the garden! I have to keep telling myself that its too early. If I plant out now then a killing frost will come along and wipe everything out just as it gets a good start.
That's how we roll here in zone 6a.
