Wine Crate Herb Garden


herb garden


I’m a creature of habit.  I have little routines that I look forward to and that bring me joy. My favorite of these is sleeping in and drinking coffee in bed while watching FoodNetwork on Sunday mornings.
Charlie, Max and I have a grand old time just cuddling, napping and caffeinating.  My favorite shows are those that show the host in his or her home, preparing a fun meal for the friends that will be coming over to celebrate the event they’re supposedly planning. I sit and fantasize about all the parties I could host and serve this or that dish at or how I could make this dish better or what I would add or omit from the other.
Sometimes, I get ideas for things that have nothing to do with cooking at all, such as decorating, party themes or, as was the case a couple of weeks ago, gardening.  One host showed how she used a box frame as a shelf in which she placed her planted herbs.   I’ve been ruminating on that one for a while… then Saturday it hit me!  Here’s what I came up with 🙂
  • I went to my local wine superstore and purchased some wooden wine crates for $5 each.  Most wine stores either give these away or sell them to patrons who want to use them as gift boxes, etc.  You may have to ask a store clerk where they’re located for purchase or if you can just have them for free!
  • Variety of potted herbs (I got mine on sale, 5 for $10!)
  • clear spray paint with matte or satin finish
  • ring hangers, 2 hangers for each planter box.

Here’s how I put it all together:
