    Is there any kind of plant that I can plant around the edges of my garden to repel the ducks from going in there. Don't get me wrong, it's very helpful to have the kids in the garden eating weeds but they are also walking on top of, and knocking over our veggies. It's kind of irritating my fiance. I would just put up a fence but don't have enough fencing to go around our rather huge garden at this time. Any suggestions?

    *We just put up a temporary 'restraining' fence for our wandering hen. It's made of wire window screen and 3 ft. wood stakes (5O cents ea.). Whole thing cost well less than $3O. Ought to work for a duck unless he flies in. The soft screen is even cheaper. Won't keep out bunnies, though.
