Were the scenes that reached my eyes after my morning out today. 3 dastardly chickens had broken into my baby vegie patch, and had a couple of hours of fun, totally destroying it. The only things that will survive their attentions are the Broad Beans (well nibbled, but apparently not so tasty), some tiny Lettuce seedlings that they missed, and maybe one or two of the lesser eaten snow peas. The rest has been scratched up, ripped out and totally destroyed.
EVERYTHING that was growing in these 2 beds, I had raised and nurtured myself from seed. It represented 3 months of work and care, and I am so angry about losing it all. Obviously, the garden plan will need to be rethought. I’m not going to bother replanting anything until we have the bed situation sorted out as I’m not interested in throwing away any more time or energy. Simple living is neither simple, nor easy. Sorry to be totally down, but that’s the way it is today. And we are expecting yet another severe storm this evening, and I’m not going to be getting a whole lot of sleep. I’m going to go drown my sorrows in a hot cup of tea and lots and lots of chocolate, and I’ll be back when I have something pleasant to post!
