Well... it seemed like the perfect place to hang our herbs!
How cute is this??
Excuse our chives, which seem to have had better days! But seriously - is this not the coolest thing ever? We wanted to keep our herbs in smaller pots this year because otherwise they grow totally out of control. We use them all the time in the summer, but we don't use very much (4 basil leaves in the pasta salad tonight was plenty).
The hanging bars and pots are actually from IKEA and are supposed to be hung in a kitchen for utensils. We spent about $20 on the bar and pots, but I think you could do it even cheaper if you used pots you already had on hand or some other recycled idea. We have a 6th pot to add (mint) but since we just stole it from our neighbor's garden today (thanks, Rob!) we haven't hung it yet.
So there you go... a space saving and totally cute herb garden!
Oh - and check out the hanging baskets on the other side of the fence. I love the fence!
We had a GREAT Memorial Day and the 80 degree / sunny weather we've had for the past week finally broke tonight. It started raining about 20 minutes ago and it's the perfect end to a great weekend.
To get you excited for this week... here's a sneak preview of something we started working on today that you'll get to see more of this week!
Wonder what all of that wood is going to become??
Happy Memorial Day!
