Every year I have grand gardening plans. But then as the weather gets hot and sticky and buggy – I start to loose interest somewhat. But this year, with Hubby around, he has taken the lead on the garden and it is doing really well. Our garden is a good size, but kind of far away from the house.
I have a tendency to start cooking and then realized I want to add some herbs from the garden. So, this year, I decided to put some herbs right on the back deck where they can easily be grabbed. And since, it is an herb garden, I decided to go ahead and “decorate” it with a kitchen them. I found some inexpensive bowls, plates, cups and spoon rests at a local discount store.
Putting the garden together is rather easy and be customized many different ways. We chose to use galvanized containers because I have a lot of them – so many, in fact, I made a Christmas tree out of them. However, any selection of planters would work. We also used a small vintage door but that could easily be replaced with painted plywood or stained hardwood. Or, you could create something similar to this project.
