A Quack-Quack Here And A Quack-Quack There.....

Not yet...Mostly peep-peep-peep. The ducklings arrived this morning. All ten are alive and healthy looking. They're eating and drinking good. Good enough they already have their brooder wet and have food all over the bottom of the tub. That's what ducks do. Make a mess but they are so cute that I don't mind the mess. They also supply us with lots of eggs to bake with.

Duck eggs make cakes and bread very rich. I love to bake using duck eggs. The eggs aren't too good to eat but they are edible. They're just a little tough.

There's ten babies. They will be grown before I know it.

Enough about the ducklings. Time for some garden talk. I checked the zucchini this morning. All four hills are up and looking good.

The green beans are up too. Most every hill came up. The beans are in a four by twenty raised bed. There's four rows of them in the bed so if all of the seed come up and the beans grow, we should have loads of green beans this summer.

We still don't have the okra nor the Asparagus beans planted. Maybe we can get that done this Friday. William will be off from school then. We will be doing some work in the yard if weather permits.

That's all that's going on here at Hunny Bunny Haven today. All except Sakura is not too happy with our new additions to the family. I think she's a bit jealous that I'm making a to-do over the ducklings and she's not getting all the attention. She'll get over it. I want her to get use to the ducklings being around so she won't be chasing them.

That's it for the day. Have a great day y'all.
