DIY Herb Garden

There is just something about summer that makes me want to dig my hands into the cool damp soil and reap all that mamma earth has to offer (in the most environmentally conscious manner of course). But I live in a shoe box in Brooklyn, so my dreams of an English garden meets vegetable garden may need to wait. Until then there is no reason I can’t have fresh herbs at my finger tips even with limited space. Check out a few DIY Herb Gardens for us apartment dwelling city folk and get reaping!

This one I love even though it’s not a true DIY because you buy these cool upside down pots online at Nevertheless if you have the means go for it! 



Now go forth and build, plant, reap, and repeat!!
