Hopefully, finally, eventually, harvest have been started. We start from Tosai as usual.This year, weather was very good, so I am very much satisfied with quality. Because water condition of fry mud ponds have been very stable, I believe lots of breeder have good result. This year, quality and conditions of Tosai production was very stable than other years. Following movie is Tosai for sale on autumn and those are not Tategoi but I am confidence for those high quality Tosai. At the end of Sep, Tosai Tategoi will be harvested. Breeding season has been ending soon.
Yesterday, it was huge rain like a squall. It may be difficult to see on movie but I happened to find very rare scene. The rainbow appeared just in front of my car!!! I have never seen rainbow in front of me, so I grab camera and filmed. I hope this is good sign. Please wish my luck . . .
I would like to show how we are doing good at breeding Tosai this year. Because we have had very hot summer, lack of water is serious and big problem but our fry ponds which have adequate water are doing very well. We dig well by ourselves and secure water, so weather like this season makes Tosai production very well. On the other hand, the weather like last year which rained very heavily for long time gives us lots of trouble. This is very tough part of breeding koi because it is living thing and we can not do much thing for natural disaster. I would like to be careful even we are doing good so far and make it successful at the end. BUT. . . very hot . . . .
I’m sorry I haven’t updated blog for three month. I will try to update constantly.
Today, I filmed the 2sai in mud pond. Because of no water due to hot weather, the water level of mud pond become lower and color of water became strong blue. Because water tempreture of surface become very high, koi swim deeper level of mud pond and I haven’t been able to seen those 2sai much. However, today, hopefully they appears when I visit mud pond so I quietly filmed them. From further seen, it looks growing into roughly 50cm and body confirmation have been developed. We still have one month until harvest, so I will feed them well and make them more beautiful.
