CRAFTY MONDAY: REVAMP a NEGLECTED OLD PLANTER and fill it with FRESH NEW HERBS!
I am sure that somewhere in your garden, shed or garage you have an old, ugly looking planter that just like me, you are saving for whatever unknown reasons in the future. Smile. Well, aren’t we lucky today? I found mine and decided to give it a facelift to grow some needed fresh herbs.
It doesn’t take that much time or money to restore it. Just clean it really well, and allow it to dry for at least a day to make sure is totally dry. Then go to the store of your choice and get a can of spray paint, the color that appeals to you. Then just paint the booger, and allow it to dry completely again for one more day before filling it with soil.
Finally, if you don’t have seedlings that you started at home from other herbs, just go to your garden center and purchase some of the (ORGANIC) herbs that you like most and BOOM, you will not have to purchase herbs weekly at your grocery store anymore or at least for a while. If it’s wintry outside, then keep the planter indoor in a sunny window location or outdoor if you have good weather.
Oh, and don’t forget to water the planter to keep the plants alive. Enjoy your new herbs.
