2012 Gardening in Middle Tennessee. Weather was lovely for Thanksgiving. Today it is grey and drizzly. The grass and weeds are happy. Birds are eating about 20% of the food in the feeder each day. So far, I have not seen any evidence of squirrels using them - and we have lots of squirrels in our neighborhood. Lots of cottontails, too. The indoor mint cuttings didn't fare so well, and I am down to only one now. Some of the basils also culled. Still, the rosemary looks good, and at least 3 of the basils are doing well.
