The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
I enjoy seeing these lovely roses, they lift my spirits. I am not familiar with the beautiful pink flower.
The chickens and ducks look healthy. Are ducks as destructive to gardens as chickens? Both species provide excellent nourishment to growing things.
You ask a good question about the name for the female duck. The search is on:
"A baby duck is called a duckling, and an adult male is a drake. An adult female duck is called a hen or a duck, and a group of ducks can be called a raft, team or paddling. Generic terms like bird, chick and flock also apply to ducks."
So, you have a raft of ducks or a paddling of ducks. I didn't know that!
I was pretty upset to find 3 of my 4 kale plants laying (lying?) inert on the ground, evidently chewed off by a wascally wabbit. It didn't bother to eat the leaves. I got 4 replacements (from my kid's organic farm). Like so many other plants, I'll cover or fence them up at night.
I pulled a bunch of radishes yesterday and froze them. I googled how to do it. Hope it works.
From what I read, the white fungus is good for gardens.
There's a fungus amoungous. Yea!
The last few days, I've dug out weeds under my trees and spread 1.5 - 2 inches of wood chips around them. Today, when I dug into the pile of wood chips, I was very happy to see white fungi already growing in it.
