    I have a small pond that I believe is there due to shallow water table. I thought trying to grow some millet this summer if any muddy bank is exposed or something that could be planted in standing water. Another question I have, is if I were to make it a little bigger and deeper to pump out of it would it replenish itself?

    Call your NRCS people. Sounds like a helluva setup.

    +1 to this! People spend a whole lot of time and money to recreate what you’ve got naturally.
