Roger Swain cleans out the small pool by the deck after a long winter. He drains it and refills it with well water. He adds goldfish to the pond and advises those with city water to first treat it with a conditioner before adding the live fish.

Roger divides various perennials to increase the number of plants. He uses a sharp spade and an old kitchen to divide them. The divisions are placed in pots until ready for transplanting.
