DIY Backyard Kitchen Herb Garden

DIY Backyard Kitchen Herb Garden

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.
