Kitchen Herb Garden

I have a nice big window with a southern exposure in my kitchen that is perfect for a container herb garden.

It is so nice to have a selection of fresh herbs to use when cooking.

The kitchen is decorated in a Farmhouse style,   so I wanted the herb garden to have the same feel.

I have my plants on the window sill and also sitting on vintage milk crates.     I found a wooden HERBS sign at Hobby Lobby that I placed on one of the crates.

In front of the sign,    I have rocks that have herb names on them.

I think the wood slice garden markers also add to the Farmhouse feel.

I found my wood slices just a few days ago in the 60% off isle at Joann's.

I have several kinds of mint that I use in summer drinks.

I like to use unexpected items in my decorating,   and in my herb garden I placed a white vintage light fixture in the milk crate.

While I was photographing the herb garden,   I noticed that the drawer under the Hoosier cabinet could use a good dusting.

While I had the drawer cleaned out,   I thought you might like to see the inside of it.    Not only does the drawer front have a hand painted rose on it,   the inside also has been hand painted.

Many of you have asked where I store everything.

I love to create pretty tablescapes,   so I have to find places to stash all the dishes I have. 

 Let's take a look under the drape across the pass thru.........

I have more hand painted drawers filled with dishes along with a couple of shelves that hold more dishes.   

 I really need to organize my dishes a little better,    but as long as I can find what I need.........that chore is at the bottom of a long to do list!

I just love my herb garden and if you have a sunny window in your kitchen,     I would encourage you to fill it with herbs or flowers! 

   You'll be surprised at how much you will enjoy indoor container gardening!
