So....That didn't quite go to plan! Over 12 months since my last blog. I must try harder but if I'm honest I've simply spread myself too thinly for a while so something had to give. Having a baby had a fair amount to do with it and running two businesses whilst trying to find time for everything else it just wasn't happening. In the last instalment I ended by saying I would talk about the early growth of the carp as they spent their first couple of years in the lake. So, let's make a start! The first year was pretty simple with regards to the carp's progress. They were clearly all going to start growing at a decent rate as they were all so small and had acres of empty lake to swim around in.
