Aaron's Herb Box


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?

To follow Aaron's culinary adventures, visit his blog The Grape Leaf Kitchen.

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!

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!
