Little Green Thumbs!: {Rain Boot Herb Garden}

Have a couple of little green thumbs in the family?!
Children love  digging around in the mud and dirt
 exploring, creating and imagining as only children can do!
 Why not combine that love with gardening and re purposing!
That is what we have done here with our rain boot herb garden! 

Using rain boots no longer able to wear, we poked several holes in the bottom/soles of the rain boots to allow for drainage.

We selected Peppermint and Sage

                                     Italian Parsley and Tarragon for our herb garden.

Using a good quality organic potting soil, we potted our herbs.

Gave our thirsty friends a good drink of water

They look much happier now!

Now we can have fresh, organic herbs right at our finger tips when ever we need them!
 We are looking forward to making Peppermint tea with our Peppermint!
Adding the Italian Parsley to our garlic shrimp and pasta dish!
Tarragon to a yummy vinaigrette!
And trying fried Sage leafs!
Remember, keep it Homespun!

The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of His unfailing love!
Psalm 33:5
Homespun With Love

  1. Haha, this is SO cute! What a fun idea!

  2. I LOVE this! My son has a really similar pair of rain boots that we got at Target last Spring and he has loved them so much that I know neither of us are going to be able to part with them when they don't fit any more. This is the perfect solution; I can keep them around and they'll actually be useful instead of just taking up space in storage! Thanks SO much! He will enjoy planting the herbs with me too, and looking at his little froggies. :)

  3. What a great upcycle! I would love it if you linked up to my Tuesday Confessional link party going on now: http://www.craftyconfessions.com/2011/08/tuesday-confessional-link-party-and.html
