So, many of us are gearing up for our gardens this year. If you are growing herbs like I am, there are so many different types of containers you could use to hold them.
My plan for our herbs:
Not terribly out of the ordinary, but I will be planting in window boxes on the deck – I will be putting the various herbs in aluminum pails.
It will look kind of like this (only with herbs, of course).
I found the pails on clearance at Gordman’s. I may paint them red with white flowers.
Why, you ask?
- I’m putting it on the deck because it will be close to the kitchen (so it will be easy to get herbs quickly).
- I’m putting them in the pails so I can bring in a few of them easily over the winter to use them year-round.
Looking for some more creative – here are some of my favorite ideas from do it yourself.
My personal favorite – tea cups in the kitchen window.
Strawberry pot turned lamp.
Dog bowls turned containers. (Cat nip anyone?)
Vintage coffee pan.

What’s your favorite? Are you digging the traditional containers or would you go outside the pot?
