Dish Garden

What's It Wednesday #95

Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes last week. The kids are on the mend, and my audit is over, with good reviews! God willing, Paula's will be over soon too!

I'm still trying to use my collectibles in new ways. So I decided to use my spool cabinet in the kitchen to grow fresh herbs in the drawers.

I don't have to worry about cold weather, but I do love the thought of having fresh ingredients in arms reach throughout the year.

I love basil, rosemary, and lemon balm. I'm also trying this city garden salad in my soup tureen, too.

Using the ironstone pieces as containers is another fun way to bring other collectibles out and give them a new purpose.

I'm enjoying my dish garden. Rain or shine, I can always be in the garden.
Hugs,
Patti
