Lucky for me, I already had 4 small glass containers perfect for this project on hand. I also had leftover peel-and-stick chalkboard from the end cabinet I covered a while back. (you can see that here) I used an exacto knife and a ruler to cut 4 labels all the same sizer and stuck them onto the glass containers.
All I had to purchase was the soil and the seeds. I got all of that at The Christmas Tree Shops for $6.
Now, I don't have a green thumb. As a matter of fact, I have a black thumb. Nearly every single plant in our home is fake. I am not a gardener. But, I was able to fill these containers with soil and add the seeds. My 3 year old son even helped and had a blast. The whole project only took about 20 minutes. The hardest part was writing the names on the labels. I wanted them to look pretty!
My son came running downstairs this morning eager to see the herbs. Much to his dismay, they weren't here yet. Hopefully, between the two of us, we will nurture this little window herb garden enough to actually produce herbs...with patience.
I think my herb garden on the window sill goes nicely with the rest of the spring decor I recently added to this area of my kitchen. The glass apothecary jars came from Home Goods a while back and were filled with pine cones over the winter. I filled them with Spanish Moss and white wooden eggs that I found at Michael's last year for 80 cents each.And I, of course, had to add a little bird! I found the little guy at the Dollar Tree.
Do you garden? What do you enjoy growing?
