I am delighted to report that ducks really do eat Duckweed. These guys
remind me of the ADM TV commercials with rows of tandem combines
cutting through endless fields of wheat.

Richard Mabey's -Flora Britannica- has an interesting entry for
duckweed. In some parts of England it is personified as ' Jenny
Greenteeth," a hag who lures children to death by drowning by covering
the surface of ponds so thickly they appear to be solid ground.

My dog fell for that (literally) a few years ago. We were walking
along a sluggish river that was completely covered with duckweed. The
dog saw something on a small island and went bounding toward it. Was
she ever surprised when she discovered the green area was water and not
land. Jenny Greenteeth had chosen a faulty spot for her trap, as the
water was only a foot or so deep.
