First seeds arrive; how many ducks?


Somehow, the first set of seeds to arrive came from the furthest place, Territorial, out in Oregon.

I don't think any of these were seeds I was planning to start indoors, so they'll just have to be patient, but I now have wild garden mustards, New Zealand spinach, Italian dandelion, beets, and poppies waiting to grow.

I spent a fair amount of time last night reading more about ducks. I'm no longer convinced that the space I'm planning for the ducks is big enough to hold ten ducks without them wrecking the place, but I guess we'll see what happens, and whether I can move them around the yard and the garden some more. Apart from that question, and the need to ensure that they have fresh water all the time, ducks sound like a lot more fun than chickens.

(We might be able to move some of them out to the orchard, where there's a pond, in summer, but I don't think there's a reliable winter water source out there, and I'd rather have them here in any event.)
