Today I’m back to share with you what’s been going on at my besties place, remember she’s the one that just moved into an apartment. If you missed the entry way we created you can see that HERE, but today we put together an kitchen herb garden in galvanized containers.
She’s still able to have a small garden on her balcony and we put the herbs into buckets that she can easily bring into the kitchen when cooking. She shouldn’t have to give up what she loves just because she’s living in a smaller space. We just had to get a little more creative, she’s used to having a big vegetable and herb garden.
The starter plants were just the right size for the galvanized buckets, we didn’t even have to add any additional dirt. We just popped them out of the original containers and into the buckets. The buckets came from Tractor Supply Company, a local farm store.
They seem to be much better priced there; apparently they don’t know galvanized containers are trending at the moment. If you purchase them at a garden center or craft store you’ll pay more than double what we did at the farm store.
I think it turned out really nice and now she’ll be able to cook with her favorite herbs again. Just having something green and alive in the place really works wonders for making the place look fresh and summer like.
If you like the galvanized caddy we placed the buckets in I don’t have a source for that. We both purchased one many years ago at the Shipshewanna flea market and have used it for different things over the years. It just happens to be an herb caddy at the moment. It makes it easy to transport the herbs outside onto her balcony on nice days.
