    What would you guys suggest planting in it before it fills up this time of year I plan on planting millet and smart weed later in the summer months

    How far south in TX are you? Pretty sure you are far too late to plant much of anything this year.

    50/50 rice corn with some molasses to hold it together.

    They like sweet potatoes in Texas.

    Dunno if you'll get anything started this late. It'd probably be considered baiting. I'd just wait until next year and start fresh, and avoid the hassle. I know it sucks, but so do baiting tickets.

    I just attended a seminar hosted by SUNY College Environmental Science and Forestry and Ducks Unlimited and they suggest barnyard grass/millet as it's easy to maintain and the duck (and other pond animals) get a lot out of it. I have some information that I would be happy to share with anyone but it does pertain to Central New York (no where near New York City) I'm not sure if it would work well for Texas.
