I Love Herbs!

Hi! Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for taking a few minutes to spend with me.

At The Rustic School House we have a half wall in our kitchen. For what seems like forever, I have placed stainless steel canisters on it that held flour, sugar and tea. While I was enjoying a cup of coffee one morning I planned how I wanted to change the styling on it.  Since the ledge gets a lot of natural light, I thought potted herbs would be a good start.

I spotted three pots at my local home improvement store.

They had everything I wanted:
  • a saucer 
  • cheery butter yellow color 
  • texture
  • size

They are simple but classic.

I transplanted the herbs from the plastic pots the plants they came in, loosing the root ball before placing them in the new pots with good quality potting soil. I watered them and continue to every couple of days.

There is nothing like smelling the fresh herbs as I pick and cook them. I enjoy the flavour even more knowing that I grew them. I should have done this sooner!
