Thyme for Herbs II

Freshly picked herbs not only bring excitement and variety to otherwise bland or uninspiring dishes, they add a decorative touch to your porch, kitchen table, patio, etc! Not to mention, a $3.99 plant can last you through an entire season of cooking {if you keep it alive}! I love cooking with fresh herbs, but dang, they get expensive when you have to purchase an entire container at the grocery store when the recipe calls for just a “pinch!” 

With springtime right around the corner, I am already daydreaming about how to spice up my 2012 Herb Garden. What sort of pots, labels, and herbs will I use this year now that I have so many pinspiring ideas!?..

{Sidenote: {Click Here} if you missed last spring’s post on my 2011 herb garden success!}

 Chalkboard paint labels

 Clothespin clipped labels

 Popsicle stick labels

 Pot within a pot, within a pot

All in one pot, with chalkboard painted labels

Tea can pots

Somehow I managed to keep most of these herbs alive the entire season

 Decisions, decisions! 


Are you planning to grow your own herbs this spring?!

    Love this! I only have a basil plant right now (and I'm always putting them on pizzas and salads!) But maybe I should grow my garden too! πŸ™‚

    Oh man, I love all of these ideas. I can't wait to see what you choose! I'm partial to the chalkboard since that's what we did with ours this year BUT the others are such great ideas too! We are doing parsley, three basil plants (don't ask), cilantro, thyme and rosemary. Our mint plant died already. bummer. can't wait to see photos of the finished product!

    I have a little herb garden that I was planning on setting up, but I cannot find anywhere to put them where they will look pretty and still get enough sunlight! I am running out of room! They need sunlight right? Because if not…I'm putting them together tonight! πŸ™‚

    The first display is too cute! My mother in law gave me a basil plant last year and it was amazing to have to cook with. I think I am going to continue the trend this year and add a few more πŸ™‚

    I had my first herb garden here two years ago on my balcony. However all these weird bugs ended up in it and inside my apartment. I think I want to try an herb garden inside this year! xo

    Such cute ideas! I can't wait to plant my little window box garden in a couple of weeks. My organo, rosemary and parsley have survived the winter, but Basil is my favorite.
