Herbs and a Potting Bench

My garden space is limited so I had to be creative about planting my herbs this year. I chose to mount them on the dead space where the garage wall meets our back deck. It is a space that needs to be used functionally and beautifully because it is highly visible and a focal point from the house and back yard. 

I chose to grow chives, cilantro, basil, rosemary, sweet mint and chocolate mint. They are all doing very well. 

For my potting table I used an old chippy table that I found at the flea market. My mom found me the great rusty stool to pair with the table. 

Now I can start potting!

Thanks for checking in.
