Hello! Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share with you my DIY Herb Garden!
We have so much fun growing vegetables and herbs in the summer. They taste better and we save a lot of money by not having to buy them at the store. My daughter and I love grape tomatoes so much that you can often find us eating them right off the plant. 🙂
Another thing I can’t get enough of in the summer is basil. Tomatoes + basil = YUMMY! So, every summer, I make sure to have plenty of basil planted.
This year, I decided to make our herb garden a little differently and I am so happy with the way it came out!
It all started when I found this iron door at a garage sale. I pictured it in our yard somewhere, but didn’t have an idea right away. After a few days of moving it all around the yard, a light bulb went off in my head and I knew it would be perfect for a herb garden.
These galvanized buckets were in my craft room, but after changing things up a bit, I didn’t have a need for them in there anymore. I thought they would be the perfect home for my herbs this year! I had already painted them with chalkboard paint so they were ready to be labeled for herbs.
To get the buckets “herb ready”, I drilled four holes in the bottom of each one.
Then, I put a layer of mulch in the bottom of each bucket.
