fresh herbs all year long

The other day I was at Wal*Mart and I happened to notice that all of the herbs were 75% off. I grabbed some and decided to plant my herb garden that I never got around to doing earlier in the season. The herbs are planted in little buckets and attached to some twigs that I attached to my fence using eye hooks.
I planted the herbs in buckets so that I can bring them inside when the weather changes. I am excited to have fresh herbs all winter long!

  5. I absolutely love the twig hanger! I am totally doing that next summer. And your herbs look great in those pots. I was just sulking about losing my basil, but maybe I should try to get some going inside!

  10. I'm in love with this idea! Totally genius. And those buckets are to die for! Now... do herbs come with cooking instructions at all? :)

  13. Great idea and great sale! I have three small metal buckets I was thinking of adding herbs to also, Emily. Did you have to put any stones or anything in the bottom before putting the plants in? That is my only concern. I could just see mine dying because of no drainage! I'm just waiting on some number tags I ordered for my buckets.

  19. I am so jealous I never got around to planting herbs either, might just have to check for sales like you did! But what I really love is how you have them hanging---you rock my friend!
