Browsing the web, I came across this lovely idea for an indoor herb garden. I immediately used it for inspiration & decided we needed an indoor herb garden, stat. I even added 'make an indoor herb garden' to my summer list.
I love the idea of being able to cut fresh herbs for cooking dinner, right from our kitchen table. I also want to try my hand at drying out the herbs, to use for later.
Here's how we made our indoor herb garden...
- Various sized soup cans -- we used all the same size- Seeds -- we planted basil, parsley, & oregano since those are the herbs that we use the most
- Large terra-cotta saucer
- River rock
- Potting soil
- Card stock
To begin, remove the labels from your soup cans & make sure they are washed well.
Then flip the cans over & put several drainage holes in the bottoms of the cans with the hammer & nail.
*make sure your dog is supervising...
Next, fill the cans up about an inch or so with small river rock or pebbles. Honestly, I grabbed some stones from the landscaping around our house & they worked swell!
Now comes the fun part... arrange your cans in the terra-cotta saucer & adorn them with ribbon & labels.
This is such an easy & budget friendly DIY... and, it makes for a great center piece on your kitchen table!
