Small Space Apartment Herb Garden in Galvanized Containers

Apartment Size Kitchen Herb Garden On The Balcony 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 HEREbut today we put together an kitchen herb garden in galvanized containers.

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.

We just popped them out of the original containers and into the buckets. The buckets came from Tractor Supply Company, a local farm store.

If you purchase them at a garden center or craft store you’ll pay more than double what we did at the farm store.

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.
