I don’t have an outdoor herb garden, other than some mint that has spread all over the side of my house, but I keep several pots on my kitchen window sill.

I wanted to find a way to get them off the window sill to make cleaning it easier, and so was born my new hanging kitchen herb garden.

It’s hard to believe it started out as this beat-up old cabinet door.

But a little paint and an old bread pan was all that was needed to turn it into a kitchen herb planter.

I invited some of my blogging friends to share their favorite repuposed and upcycled planter projects, and I was blown away by their creativity.

  1. Great ideas, Angie! Thanks for including my book planter in your roundup. 🙂

  2. Angie, there are plants that should come with a warning and mint is one. Just to spare other readers, if you want to plant mint outside, put it in a large, deep plastic pot that has the bottom cut off. Your mint can grow to fill the pot diameter, but will be stopped from taking over the garden. Artemesia is another plant that will take over too. I am so upset that there isn’t more helpful instructions for new gardeners so they don’t have to learn the hard way…though that is the big plus of the internet, isn’t it?
    Always enjoy your posts. It is snowing today in Maine, ugh. It is Spring. This is when I detest Winter, when it refuses to leave. I know the snow will melt, but I say Winter is like a guest who has overstayed its welcome. I enjoy it during its time, but leave already!

    • Susan, I feel the same way about winter – As soon as Christmas is over, I’m ready for spring! That’s a great suggestion about planting mint in a container outside to control it. Fortunately, my mint is growing on a side of the house where other plants have never grown well, so it gets the space all to itself. I do love having some indoors too, where you can grab a few fresh leaves when you need them.

  3. Thanks so much for including my post about How to Make a Teapot Planter in your round up!
