DIY Tales: Indoor Herb Garden

Do you grow herbs? – We do with an Indoor Herb Garden
This year in St Louis it was such a hot summer our herbs did poorly. Every time we went to get something off an herb plant, it was, well, baked – no matter how much shade or water we provided the herbs. We decided to grow some small indoor herbs near our kitchen for easy snipping. We needed an out of the way place so we decided to place them on the wall.
Walking through Joann’s Fabrics – I found on the clearance rack ($2.50 each) for 4 potters made just for growing indoor herbs for the wall! So excited I took them home and mounted the indoor herb potters with Hercules Hooks purchased from As Seen on TV.
Using this hook made it easy to hang these little half round indoor herb QT’s in their new home. I simply twisted, pushed and turned – Bam – installed! I did have to drilling or pounding to try to find a stud – and the best thing no damaged walls – that’s right – a simple pin type hole! These little hooks can hold up to 150 lbs, so I knew our indoor herb garden would be no challenge for these hooks!
Once dry, I planted the four herbs we love to use in our everyday cooking, writing the names on the front of the pots. Bam! Herb Wall Garden
