Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Runners on the move

Today we set up super-reinforced fencing (OK it was recycled chain link from somebody's pool) for our runner ducks.

They ....well.. ran right out into their new yard and proceeded to run up and down the length of the fence looking for a way out.

After talking about it for a while they decided that they should just relax and enjoy their new digs. So they did. Actually they were pretty funny all day.

And they were happy to get out and into the cool grass. We hit 102* today! Can you believe it?

A couple weeks ago our weird neighbor was telling me about the ducks he bought his wife so they could race them at the towns yearly festival...I just smiled and said "that's neat Joe." Now I get it, they were the same kind of ducks you have...how funny. Unfortunately a racoon ate them all up so there will be no duck races for Joe's wife this year...poor things are probabely better off with the racoon anyway.

Stay cool, I don't think I have ever experienced 102°nor do I really want to. Enjoy those racing ducks of yours.:)

I partially followed your advice (the advice on having cake for breakfast) and had homemade peach pie for breakfast. Amazing!

I love it when I can give my birds more room. Great job.

Is this weather ridiculous or what??? The ducks were probably running around looking for some water!
