Bird cage to protect seedlings from squirrels

A bird cage on a tray on rolling table. It's awkward as the cage doesn't fit together well and is heavy, but the $134-new setup was a only few dollars at my favorite thrift store (PetPal in St. Pete). And it works! The tall basil was the only survivor of squirrel digging of the first planting, done before I added the cage to its rolling-table pan. (I had planted flats placed in the tray, but was using the cage parts on the ground elsewhere.) The cage enables me to have seeds actually sprout .... it was the squirrels all along - not my ineptitude! The pan holds a tiny bit of water. Since then I've sown and transplanted other seeds (for instance, $1 store zinnias... and they did transplant successfully) and resown.
