We up-cycled some large tin cans and used some spray paint we had on hand for this fun project!

I'm trying something new this year, growing an herb garden on the deck near the kitchen! I thought it would be great to have these right outside my door for easy snipping!
We have a large family, so we have an endless supply of large cans. However, any type of container would work as long as it has proper drainage. You can make drainage holes in your containers with a nail and hammer or layer some gravel in the bottom of your container before adding the soil. Then plant your herb seeds, like we did, or purchase some small plants. Keep them watered, give them some sunshine and you'll be snipping in no time.
So far, I've planted basil, parsley, chocolate mint, dill, lavender, chives and sweet marjoram in my colorful new pots!
Do you use fresh herbs in your cooking?
