    They went somewhere yesterday and I was truly frantic..they came back this morning..wouldn't tell me where they've been!! They just wriggled!
    Trying to plant backyard into pots of various sizes. You can never know how long you have at a property..sold my house some time ago and have been renting unhappily for several years. Not leaving my "garden" anywhere. It goes, where I go. I'll post photos later today. The beauty of these pots is amazing. Florida is so damn hot and keeping moisture at proper levels is almost impossible. Began using tubs with poly rope handles, paint with fusion paint like copper and fill with 3 cufoot of garden soil. Then pot. Moving around is a cinch and so is moisture content. Going for the photos..

    Congratulations on being farmer of the day! That's cool that the ducks chose you as their foster parent.

    So, are you saying the ducks are visitors who stay at your house when they want to? Figs, eh? What a yummy crop.

    My new arrivals, Ducky and Dolly. Muscovy Ducks, male and female and always together. They are here most all the time and are a pleasure as much as they are messy!
