Ducks in the Garden

I know, I know…

I kept saying I was going to stick the ducks in the garden when it was all done.
I said it last year.
I said it in the spring, thinking they’d help with early, pre-planting weeding.

But, it never got done.
Until now!!

Behold…ducks in my garden!

There were a little put out by this move…

Brown duck is accusatory duck. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

But then, they discovered the seeds on the long grass and started eating…

‘Kay, maybe not so bad…

They have 3 places for shelter…the 2 compost bins, which are empty, with the doors off. And a crate that they’ll all fit into if they choose to cuddle together.

Donald…yeah, well, my Hubby named him.
He’s a handsome duck.
And he likes having 5 wives. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

And then, the girls found the pool…because ducks have to have a pool!

Oh the excitement!!

Splashy splashy…

So they’ll stay in the garden for a month or so, eating weeds, bugs, and fertilizing.
Then we’ll move them back to the coop when the weather turns towards colder.

    I would be in a lawn chair watching them a lot. I’m guessing you did just that. So adorable.

    Have a fabulous day, my friend. β™₯

      I love watching them bath, and the girls are so much fun to listen to, with their trills and squeaks.
      As messy as they are, I’m glad we added ducks to the Farm. πŸ™‚

  2. Found you on the Simple Homestead Blog Hop. This is awesome! My daughter really wants to get ducks, so I’ve been doing some research. Putting them in your garden is such a great idea!

      Nice to meet you! πŸ™‚

      I love having ducks.
      They’re messy and wet, but so much fun.
      I’m hoping that they can clear out some of the weeds for me before it’s time to put the garden to bed, but if not, at least they got to enjoy foraging in there for a few months.
