For some people, gardening is a relaxing and therapeutic activity to pass the time. Some of us may not have the time to plant a full growing garden, but you can always start small! It never hurts to have a few home grown herbs, flowers or even fruits and veggies! Something about that homegrown freshness just can’t be beat and it’s so rewarding!
If gardening isn’t something you have practiced before or you are thinking you don’t have the time or patience to get too crazy just yet, try some of these ideas that are small, simple and still useful!
Pallet Herb Garden
This is such a great use for an old wood pallet. Herbs take a little work once they are grown, but they work well indoors as well as outdoors so they are perfect if you don’t have space in the yard! Better Homes and Gardens has some tips for growing herbs here and you can get the tutorial on the pallet garden from Eat Live Shop.
Stick with the herb theme, this is another simple way to get the herb garden started using those old ice cream cones! Plant the herbs in the cone and once it starts to grow you can plant the cone in the ground because it’s biodegradable!
