The sticky mouse traps are good, but they are so sad when the mice are caught and are alive when you find them.... :(
Ham and Scalloped Potatoes
I make this recipe with ground beef (browned and rinsed before I add it to layers of the potato). Never thought to try this with ham - great idea, especially with the holidays coming with leftovers! Thanks!
I dont know about the gardenia and lavender, but you can grow the basil from seed. Just make sure that it has a sunny window, and rotate the pot so that the plants do not lean unevenly towards the light!
Planting Virginia Creeper?
Dont do it! Some people are highly allergic to Virginia Creeper (me, included), and it can cause a rash that will last for over a month and several cortisone shots. I am not allergic to poison ivy or poison oak, so I never dreamed this plant would affect me...

Can I Use a Hand Steamer to Defrost a Freezer?
I have used a hair dryer before and had no problems. Just use a slow steady stream of air, and do not focus in one place for too long. Use towels or a pan below to catch the drips/ice chunks. Good luck!
