I've been wanting to plant some herbs for a long time now. So, I decided I'd finally get it done today and I'm so so happy about it!! I love the way my project turned out for my kitchen and I love having fresh herbs around the house!  When I was asked to do this post by Miracle-Gro I went and checked out their Find beauty in the Fall web page and they have TONS of ideas for you to plant some fun Fall gardening! I love it. It makes me want to grow a green thumb ;) But seriously I have killed every plant I've tried to grow and I'm hoping Miracle-Gro can help me out with this! You can check out the Miracle-Gro Facebook page to get more tips. I can use all the help I can get! So. Here is how I started out this project:
First I found a random scrap piece of wood in my garage. Drew the funky shape I wanted to hang my herbs on. Cut it out with your handy dandy jig-saw. Which, by the way, I have officially fallen in love with!

Next, paint your board & mark where you want the nails to be. Uhmm have you seen this trick on Pinterest?? Put some tape where the nail needs to go, stick it to your board and you have the perfect nail hole placer

Now, nail your Pipe Clamps (you can find these at any Lowes or Home Depot) You make have to pry the holes a little to make them a little wider for you nail to fit through. and place your Mason Jar herbs into the holders. When you transplant your herbs into your jars, make sure to add rocks to the bottom so you can get proper drainage! I used Miracle-Gro Liqua-Feed for my herbs and I'm hoping it will help my poor herbs to live :) Liquafeed_Advanced.JPG



I love love my new herbs and am so excited to share a good recipe using some next week!
