One thing in our garden that we have to get used to again, is the abundance of snails and slugs!
And they grow big up here
"You don't have a slug problem....you have a duck deficiency!"
Enter my new best buddies
Five Indian Runner ducklings, picked up locally this morning
......they're the best slug and snail devourers of the duck family, and they live for all the tasty slimy treats they can get.....plus they don't like their greens and have no claws for scratching! Oh and there's the eggs too!!
They're still a week away yet before I can introduce them to our local delicasies. But that won't stop me dreaming of the day they will join me in the garden, helping me get rid of all those nasties!
Although with them positioned by my bed tonight, with a light on for some warmth, I wonder how much dreaming I'll actually be doing!
Anyone what to have a bet of how many nights I'll last before I relocate them??
