I love to cook, and in recent years I have gotten a lot more comfortable making my own spices and seasonings with dried herbs. Now I’m getting all brave and stuff and expanding on that idea by growing my own herbs! I don’t have a ton of space right now to grow anything- we’re tearing up our backyard. But you can grow everything you need for a basic cook’s herb garden right in a wood crate and it will hardly take up any space at all!
I lined the wooden crate with a black plastic garbage bag and trimmed off the excess at the top after filling with soil. So far the herbs seem quite happy planted close together, possibly because they have plenty of room to send roots downward as they grow.
The chalkboard labels are from Walmart and came in a package with the sticks that I just glued on. They’ve held up well through torrential rain and scorching sun.
The best thing about this little garden might be the smell. They smell amazingly good after the tiniest touch. I hope you plant a little wood crate garden and get tons of enjoyment out of it!
