DIY Herb Garden
Create a DIY Herb Garden and Amaze your Friends!
A DIY Herb Garden? WTF??? It must be the crazy season because all around friends, acquaintances and neighbors are having their kitchens renewed, building conservatories or installing hot tubs. These activities are more to do with money, power, status and ego than about being happy or making any real improvement in their life styles. The same goes for the family who have recently relocated to an air conditioned prison block apartment in Singapore. Good luck to everybody who is slaving away 40, 50 or 60 hours a week to fuel this kind of lifestyle!!! And Me? Well I am quite thrilled to have built a new DIY Herb Garden round an old manhole cover in back garden. This practical addition took an enjoyable morning of manual work outside in the summer sun (to boost my vitamin D and ensure a real “feelgood” factor) and cost less than $30, €30 or £25! And yes, I feel kind of smug that I can get so much enjoyment out of something so simple…plus the herbs will be around for years to come to add to salads and cooking on a daily basis. So take a Frugal Tip from the MeanyGoat and ditch the hot tub project…opt for something simple and worthwhile instead. Read on to Discover how!
