Easy Herb Garden

I found some cute pots in the dollar section at Target and bought a bunch. I knew I could find many different ways to use these. So my first way was to plant my herbs in the them. Last year I had a tiny baby when it was time to plant the garden, so it was left up to my husband and eldest. I swear my husband let my son open the packets and spin because I had plants everywhere! I thought this year I would be a little more organized. I will post a picture of my fully planted garden next week. I decided to plant the herbs inside this year. It is so much easier to have easy access to them when I need them in the kitchen. Here is what I did.  I first taped a rectangle in approx. the middle of the pot with painters tape.

Then I applied a few coats of chalkboard paint.

I then, of course, planted my herbs. Cilantro, chives and parsley. These are the three that I use the most.
I just saw this morning that I already have gowth!!!



  1. Love the buckets and the chalkboard markers!

    I am having a fine art photography giveaway on my blog. The artist is Melanie Alexandra. She has more than 200 photographs in her Etsy store. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which is your favorite image to win a photograph of your choice.

  3. How cute and easy is this!
    I am starting my own linky party this ToDaY! It's the first one. I would love it if you would participate! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering. New Follower!
