I visited my sister in law recently who lives on an old farm house, it's the perfect place for kids its with horses and chickens on a large lawn with grass and old shade trees. She has a large patio and the ideal place for lounging on Summer afternoons.
I've partnered with Target Style to show you how to easily create an herb garden space to enjoy all Summer.
I used some small clay pots as homes for different basil, oregano and thyme. Use chalk markers to keep your variations sorted. The group of herbs can also double as table decor for a cafe table like the one I used, with matching chairs. Both fold up and moved easily.
A watering can is a good idea when the herbs are still small and you don't want to flood the pots, though I like this coil hose for saving space as well. You can store it in this metal tub, hung from a wall by one of the jute handles.
There's also this great citrus tree I planted in large basket, easy to do and adds a varying texture.
After your herbs fill in and you have amble sprigs you can also trim away mature branches for drying. I hung mine with jute rope (Target sometimes has a spool in their One Spot section) from a wall hook near my kitchen. Keep in a cool, dry place and remove lower leaves before tying each small bundle. After 2-3 weeks and once the herbs are dry and crumble easily, remove leaves and store in a sealed jar. From here you can decide whether to leave the herbs whole or crush them, depending on their intended use.
