Growing a small herb garden has intrigued me for awhile. So last time I picked up a few plants for the garden, a few fragrant herbs made their way into my basket as well.
Where to put them? Didn't have a clue.
I just dug around in my junk storage stash and came up with 4 kettle styled containers and thought... hmmm... I like!
Nothing complicated about this project. Some potting soil was all that was added.
Ok, not quite true. A little spanish moss was added to hide the soil. I just like this stuff. It's got such a great texture.
No project would be complete without a few rusty gears! Truth be told, they helped to elevate some of the kettles for added height interest.
My favourite herb is spearmint. I remember while growing up, we had a wild bush of it growing inside our old farmhouse garage. A quick little pinch would have me dreaming of gum. :)
There's also two types of thyme that remind me of homemade soup!
I don't remember what the fourth is, but it's all good. I may eventually cook with some of the herbs handy right next to the kitchen, but for the most part, as with most everything else I create...
I just like looking at them. :)
