Just a light hearted remember peoples... it's summer, it's hot, tempers fray, people want to.. but the rules do say.. Don't feed the ducks 😉

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

If you had your own duck-pond @7up, would it be OK to feed them?

Ducks to the left of me, quackers to the right....

And here we are stuck in the middle with you know who.

Re: Duck ponds..

There's usually a sign. Danger Deep Holes or something like that. To put the paddlers off. But when the large forest lake was drained / dried up it was just the gradual shallow slope as you would expect.

At the time I was expecting to see some strange deep holes. I was disappointed, I mean signs don't lie do they.

Now that is deep, philosophically speaking. 🤔

@TTman 

Expense claims obligatory, ducks optional, but having a pond helps.

Re: Duck ponds..

There will be no shortage of ponds or even lakes once this weather changes next week.

Will there be enough ducks to fill those ponds or lakes…?

As long as it fills up my now empty water butt...

My toms don't take very well to tap water. 🍅 🍅 🍅

Re: Duck ponds..

@Minivanman  Get some of this,...

Westland Organic Chicken Manure Pellets - 10kg

 

either from Ebay... or your local Garden centre.

Add a trowel full, to a full watering can... leave overnight, or preferably 2 days... give a good stir, and pour on to the Tomato plant roots.

 

Alternatively... get a good strong hessian sack... nip down to your local horsey friends,/ stables, and get a half a bag of manure...  tie a good strong rope to it, and let it soak in your rain catching tub.... when the water starts looking pale, go and get a refill.....  !

Enjoy your tomatoes . Cheesy
