Ta-da! My sweet hubby made me a new planter because I couldn’t find what I was looking for at the store. We bought some boards from Home Depot. They were called 1×12 -4 #2 common boards. Pine? Untreated anyway. They were $5.83 apiece. He simply screwed three of them together and then cut another 2 to make the dividers and the ends. Isn’t he wonderful? So now, I have a great new herb box. For holding the herbs I bought today. Oh, I definitely needed an herb box (with dividers!)
I already have planters for my basil and cilantro, but today I went to a local store, D&B Supply and bought some amazing and yummy herbs. Garden, meet Chocolate Mint. Yes. An herb. Herbs are healthy, right?
And, Lemon Thyme – about my favorite herb – just amazing.
I also bought Peppermint. And then I think I am going to need some more basil, because, let’s be realistic, you can never have too much basil. Unless I decide to plant lemongrass in the last space. I need to do some research though, I have lemongrass seeds, but will they really grow very well in Idaho? And how big will they get? Tomorrow – herbs! (Remember that mint – even Chocolate Mint – is a garden thug and needs to be in a container to keep it from spreading all over the place.)
