Aaron asked if I had something big enough that he could plant his culinary herbs in.
I remembered that we had several wooden wine crates in the garage that I just couldn't throw away, and had seen them used for herbs before.
So, I showed him how to use my drill and he drilled away!
The bigger crate will have a variety of herbs...
...and the smaller one so far just has lemon balm.
I suggested we put it next to the barbeque so that his herbs can be harvested when he cooks outside.
I have a feeling he will end up planting all the crates with herbs. A great way to re-use and re-cycle, don't you think?

Great idea Delores!
I am always attracted and intrigued by being able to pick fresh herbs for cooking. I have had a few in the past, but none as fun as these, great idea and how fun! Kathysue
I love this idea!! I harvest all of my herbs, out near the patio, as well. It's just so convenient to snip a few when grilling. LOVE the crate! Thanks for sharing!
Love this idea...I too have a few of these tucked away. I think I may see a Christmas gift idea here. Thanks, as always, for your inspiration!
Great that you found a way of recycling.
Great idea and looks terrific! We ahve many wine crates in the basement too. Now I am going to come up with some different ideas for them! XO, Pinky
This is one of the most brilliant ideas I've seen in a long time! It's fantastic...the herbs look wonderful in their new home!
Ah! herb season is winding down for me.
Lovely to see the box filled with fresh herbs...
Have a great weekend,
I use wine crates to move compost, make stacked worm boxes and for temporary planters for seedlings; the original raised planting beds? Mine have weathered to grey, and I am amazed that they are so sturdy after ten years or so! Yours look so pretty here next to the BBQ!
Perfect and one of my very favorite wines!!!
