With the restoration of our kitchen following a leak disaster, I had lots of time to think - I know it sounds strange but I do do it some times!!
I have always wanted one of these gardens in the window but I guess expense, window not in the right place etc etc has meant its never happened so, here comes the thinking and my herbs in the window!
I spotted the cups (soup cups) at Spotlight and brought one home to see if PJ could drill some holes through the bottom for me.
Enter PJ with his trusty drill and a 6mm Masonry Drill .....
and he set to work ... (note the old board so he didn't drill through the table!)
Fantastic! Back out to get two more so PJ can work his magic again. I thought I'd like them all to be different colours....
Now there was just one problem - they didn't come with a saucer so I went to the Op Shop to have a look - I couldn't believe it when I spied these:
Perfect match and 4 for a dollar - SWEET!
We did a swing by Bunnings to pick up some plants and potting mix...
Then it was out to the garden to collect some stones (I know they look like big rocks here!)
Then I spread some newspaper ( to take care of the mess that I knew I would make) and covered the holes with the stones.
I then sprinkled enough potting mix to cover the stones and planted the herbs - Chives, Parsley and Coriander.
I watered them in, popped them on the window sill and admired my new herb garden in a window!
Now don't tell PJ, but there is plenty of room for more!
I just know that you will ask about the chickens! The larger one was a gift from a sewing friend (it looks like Gingham)
and I happened upon the little one and couldn't resist the spots!
I think they look right at home among the herbs don't you?
Until next time
