So we bought our house mid July and we didn't have time to plant a garden this season. We use a lot of herbs and wanted to have fresh herbs available. So an indoor planter it is!
Michael built a narrow box perfect for 8 mid size terra cotta pots. And he attached it to the kitchen window.
One week later, the seeds are starting to sprout!
I wanted a way of identifying what the seeds were so I decided to make chalk board paint!
I started with a toothpick until all the grout was mixed in with the paint.
With sanded grout it turned out...grainy. It still works fine, just not the ideal texture.
I painted a rectangle onto the planter.
Here is blog that has a great DIY for chalk board paint. Just use un-sanded grout and latex paint.
2 1/2 weeks later, they are growing! So excited to have fresh herbs!
