Minty Herb Shelf..........

I wanted to share something different for those of you who might not have the greenest thumb or the ability to dig in a garden.  This is my herb shelf on my deck with a few minty herbs, it's so easy and you can watch it grow by walking right out your door!  My grandmother always grew mint usually by the spigot.  We both shared a love for flowers.  This blog is dedicated to Retha, my grandmother, I miss her so.  In my herb book, mint is a symbol of hospitality.  This is so fitting for my grandmother, she was the most hospitable woman I will ever know.  I can't wait to try the recipes and enjoy a mint julep with my very own fresh mint from my minty herb shelf.

You will always be in my heart, grandma Retha!



  1. Oh I love this idea. What a great shelf and the herbs are fabulous. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me

  2. I love the idea of a shelf of herbs. I may have to "steal" a bit of the idea. Can't have it on the deck cause it is covered.... BUT a simple shelf type system in one of gardens would be handy. I have a couple of metal stands I could use... hmmm... thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Great idea Deb... and a good way to keep those herbs contained. Mine go crazy in the garden!

  4. Youre shelf is beautiful! A wonderful way to contain mint!I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
