This old milk-crate is one of the impulse buys at the auction a few weeks ago. I bid on it with absolutely no idea what I would do with it. Then it hit me - PLANTER! oh yes, planter. Then my extra-smart mamma came up with the idea to put different herbs in mason jars which just happen to fit oh-so-perfectly in each little cubby hole. So I have some parsley, oregano, basil, lettuce (not a herb but still super yummy1) all at my fingertips now. and they all seem to be enjoying their new little home on the deck.
