With all this healthy eating and whole30 going on over here, we’ve been going through tons of ingredients and and tons of herbs.
I like to grow my own and always have some on-hand, but to be honest, my last few attempts have been a huge fail. Either they don’t get enough sun, or they get too much, or they’re so hard to move around they get neglected and die.
I’m a terrible herb-grower.
But then I got a great idea! a bucket herb garden. I need something portable and something, well, stylish! A galvanized bucket would be perfect! They come in several sizes and are available all over (I found mine at a local feed store). I just chose one that accommodated what I wanted to plant, medium size. I picked 3 of my favorite herbs and boom done! It was so quick and easy to put together.
Here’s what you need:
Step 1: Place enough rocks at the bottom of the bucket to cover and fill bucket 3/4 full of soil.
Step 2: Plant the herbs in the bucket, adding soil as needed to cover the roots completely and water in. Since there is no drainage hole at the bottom, be cautious and do not over-water.
Annnnnnd, that’s it, we’re done! oOce you’ve gotten it all planted, it’s ready for some sun! You can easily transport it around to get the perfect amount of sunlight and then pop it back on the kitchen counter for easy access. Cute, functional, awesome! This is my new favorite way to grow herbs; it might be yours too!
