Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

 It was an okay day, but I'm mad at the ducks.  They got into my carrot bed today and trampled everything.  I left the cover off while I helped Dale cut and move some firewood - thinking that they wouldn't get in.  But, 3 or 4 females got up into it. 

Just this morning I was patting myself on the back because the carrots had recovered so nicely from being weedes, and now EVERYTHING is smashed.

I think everything will recover okay, but it looked so nice!!!  I'm especially erked that my design is not adequate.  Whatever.
