Nugget learned about gardens and plants last week at school and asked if we could have a garden. We had a pretty sizable organic vegetable garden last year, but it's hard work. Between fighting off the bugs and waiting for the vegetables to grow, I didn't have a lot of interest in starting another garden this year. I do, however, use a lot of fresh herbs when cooking and hate buying them in the store every time so I figured an herb garden is totally manageable and will save me some money.
I picked up three potted herbs from the grocery store (in the little 2"x2" containers) so I only needed three jars. I used acrylic paint for this and you'll also need some painters tape. I painted two of the jars white, and the other jar blue.
