I'm new to gardening, AND new to ducks, and I'm getting my start with each of them at the same time My ducklings will be hatching on easter. I'm planning to keep around 4 of them. Mutts and/or barnyard surprise! I know the ducks will help my garden LOADS by taking care of the slug problem. Last year a garden just wasn't an option. Dozens upon dozens of slugs. I planted my daughter's squash, that had been thriving in its little paper up, gone the next morning! Up until then, I didn't even know slugs could do that kind of damage. So I've heard strawberries have no hope around ducks. We'll plant those in pots on our deck. What about raspberries? Will we need to fence those off? Our yard has a *ton* of wild blackberries in late summer, and possibly even a larger ton of wild grapes in the fall. The grapes are terrible (except for a small area that grows a sweet kind) and the blackberries are more than we have hope of eating.. they can have all of those they want! But what about our vegetables? Will we need to work to keep them out? Are there certain ones they'll destroy and others they'll leave alone?
