The day after I posted my sad little herb garden, and lamented that the basil was struggling and that I wanted this herb to grow the most, I went outside to check on the pots. What I found so upset me -extreme vandalism by what could only be the squirrels. Not only did they dig up half of the basil (and you remember how few were sprouting - only 7 then, and now just 3!), they nearly destroyed all of the cilantro! All I could do is gasp and yell "Those damn squirrels!!" And then this song popped in my head - they play such wicked games.
