Just think how impressed your favorite celebrity chef would be if they could see your very own handmade hanging herb garden suspended from the ceiling in your kitchen—at least that’s what I like to imagine when I spot ours out of the corner of my eye. Do you think Ina would give it a satisfied smirk of approval? I’ve got my fingers crossed. Anyway, my DIY Hanging Herb Plant Garden is the most recent afternoon craft that I put together for Hunker, and you can see the whole 7-step process for making your own here.
Have you had much success with growing your own herbs? I think the main reason I’ve put a project like this off for so long is the fact that I just forget that we even have fresh herbs to cut from. My habit is to reach inside our dried herbs drawer in the kitchen, but I’d love to get better about making the most of our brand new collection of fresh potted herbs. I went all out at our local nursery in honor of our DIY Hanging Herb Plant Garden, grabbing everything from chives and rosemary, to ‘Crimson King’ basil and chocolate mint. Tell me below: what are your favorite fresh herbs to tend (and use!) at home?
