Yes, yes – we’ve all seen your cute videos of pet raccoons and what wonderful creatures they make. Well let me show you how they treat me.
See that? That’s what my lettuce/herb bed looks like AFTER I cleaned it up (OK, to be fair I didn’t put the labels back in place – what was the point?)
It yanked my poor little plants from their perfectly composted (2 year old chicken manure) home and threw them around the inside of the freezer/bed.
It them ripped them to shreds. Here are the leaves I had to throw on the ground because it – the demon spawned creature – decided they didn’t need to be attached to their fellow brethren anymore.
As you can see, what I was able to salvage may or may not make it.
I did still have a few plants left in their seedtrays. I planted those in the garden today. While knowing full well they may be destroyed this night, I really didn’t see another option.
This is not a good start for what I have already worked so hard to make a good year.
