Wow, there are a lot of suggestions over to facebook for the birdies! Thanks, guys!
I noticed some of you thought it was weird that I brought them into the bathroom. I have a bad hip that acts up when it feels like it, and have learned to dislike icy patches very intensely because of it.

I'm only kinda kidding. When it gets cold enough to freeze, the critters come in. I've had dogs, cats, rabbits, and chickens running around the house at different points, depending on what critters we have.

The experimental eggplant and cabbage, not so good, the corn flopped terribly, the radishes did horrible, the carrots I still can't find. Even the GARLIC that usually does wonderfully failed badly.
