Mini Herb Garden

 Happy Friday everyone!

And here we are with our first week of June almost complete! Even though it’s not officially summer yet, I have “all-things” summer on my mind! Everything from sitting around the campfire to water fights in the backyard to lazy days at the beach! One of the things I look forward to the most are all the fresh fruits and veggies… and herbs. I usually plant my own and today I’d like to show you my own little herb garden!

Isn’t it the cutest?

My idea is, even gardens should be pretty, right? When I saw these little galvanized pots and holder at our Dollar Tree I knew they’d look so cute on the coffee table on the deck! For only $3, I wish I would’ve grabbed another one!

Last week, Home Depot had all their herbs on for 3/$5! Usually they’re $2.50 each so that was a great deal. I could’ve bought 6 more but our summer schedule is filling up so quickly and we’ll be gone for lots of days here and there. So I didn’t want to leave too much for the lucky person who gets to water all our pots. The 3 I chose were parsley, oregano and mint.

I used mini straws as the stick part and just wrapped some craft labels around them. Using a sharpie, I labeled the herbs and done!  I was going to use the mini clothes pins too but decided not too… so you won’t find them in the pictures in case you’re looking to see how I used them ;)

It is so handy to have them sitting on the deck and I can just clip off any I need whenever I want! I’ve already used the parsley lots …  mostly for soups and garnishes.

They look delicious enough to just pick off and have a taste!
