What a Centerpiece!

Picket Fence Pots

How many of you grow your own herbs?  I tried to grow an herb garden inside once but was unsuccessful.  I think I watered too much.  It was the Chia Herb Garden which I though was supposed to be foolproof! 

I've been wanting to try again for awhile.  Not only do they make any dish even better, but they are also lovely to look at in a kitchen window. 

I just love this picket fence container idea for your herbs.  Not only would it look cute in your window, you can transfer this to your table for a fresh centerpiece!  This would be great for an outdoor garden party.  Your guests can pinch off a bit of parsley for their pasta!

Here's the how-to:

To make picket-fence herb gardens, purchase a 5-by-8-inch wooden planter box with a bottom seam for drainage, and about 4 dozen wooden plant markers. Glue plant markers around the outside of the planter with wood glue, lining up the bottoms of the markers with the bottom of the planter. Paint planter with one coat of white latex paint. Line each planter with fine gravel or perlite for drainage, then fill with potting soil and two plants. Settle the potting soil around the plants, and water.

These are so awesome. I actually just started an herb garden today and that picket fence is way cuter than the plain-ol' container I bought at the Home Depot.
