Gardening Tip
I've lost many bird feeder saucers.  They've shattered from the
weight of squirrels knocking them over or high winds blowing 
them over. I even tried ceramic glue to attach the saucer back 
on the pedestal without success.  So, finally I thought of a great
use for the base.  Invert it and plant it about 9 in. into the soil,
fill with dirt and use as a planter.  It worked beautifully in my 
herb garden.  I like the tapered shape and the ample root space
for the plants.  I think I'm more creative in the Spring than any 
other season.  How about you?  I do more writing and painting
then too.
