Another crazy start to the week around here! Why is it, that Monday's are always the most insane mornings? I swear, it's like the wheels have fallen off the cart over the weekend!!
Anyhow, today I wanted to show you a little project I did on Friday. I have wanted to do an indoor herb container garden of some type for a while now.
A week or two ago, I found a cute basket while at an antique store, and decided to use it to contain my herbs. I just needed to find an insert, and create some drainage for it, and I knew it would look great.
Here's the finished product...
I found some organic herbs, and some small ivy plants for a nice mixture.
Here is what I used to make my herb container garden...
I needed to find a bowl shallow enough to fit inside the basket, but with a wide opening at the top.
I found one on sale for $7. I liked that it was metal, since I knew I could easily poke drainage holes in it.
I just used a large nail and a hammer.
Found a 12 inch saucer at the Dollar Store for the bottom, and lined it with small rocks.
See how perfectly that fits together? Love it when that happens!
I used a variety of herbs. I bought Basil, Lemon Thyme, Peppermint, and Tricolor Sage. Then I mixed in 3 small ivy plants.
Now when I need fresh herbs for cooking, I can just reach over, and pluck some right off of my indoor herb pot! ... And *bonus*, it looks really pretty sitting on my counter! :-)
Ta-da! I love it!
I think I will make a couple more for outside, so that I can have a wide variety of herbs to cook with. Stay tuned!
Hope you have a FABULOUS week!!
