I had a set of 4 cereal bowls (ice cream bowls to me) and matching dessert dishes that were relatively chip free and thought they would make excellent planters for some herbs. I knew they needed drainage holes, but asked every male type I know to borrow a ceramic drill bit and had no luck in finding one. Undeterred, I decided to try adding a handful of rocks to the bottom of each container before adding the soil and herb plant. Fingers crossed this works.
I picked up 4 herb plants at my local Farmers Market this past Saturday (Side note: Our FM deserves an entire post just dedicated to its wonderfulness, but that will have to come later) Rosemary, Thyme, Basil and Chocolate Mint (that's right - Chocolate Mint! Can you imagine the Mojito with that?! uhh YUM!)
Now - what to do with the rest of the dishes?
