In an effort to repair his pond from the devastating effects that the 2007 drought caused, he has been tending his pond like a sick puppy (…like he would attend a sick puppy, not like I would…).
He’s already added bentonite clay.
Today, he walked in the house with a big bag and a box and a smile. A bag of water with grass carp swimming around in it. And a box of ducks. And a smile on his face. I’m assured they are just farm tools…not more animals.
Ducks to help seal the pond and grass carp to eat the grass in the pond.
We know nothing about ducks yet, so hopefully they will live longer than the ducks do in all the stories I hear people tell me. Have you noticed that no one has ducks very long?? We had a nice bedding spot for them but they quickly messed it up. They promptly began to eat the wood shavings we laid down for them. That can’t be normal or good.
So we are trying to learn Duck 101 tonight? These farm tools didn’t come with instructions!
