Here in Michigan the weather is finally warming up during the day and staying warm enough at night that we can really start our garden. Until recently it was still getting so cold at night that the plants weren’t safe outside. This year we are starting a pallet garden with many vegetables. While we love having fresh veggies on hand we also love having fresh herbs. Here is a really fun Mason Jar Herb Planter that is perfect for adding herbs in and around your garden.
Mason Jar Herb Planter
- mason jars
- metal hose clamps – the size will vary depending on the size of your mason jars
- wood pieces – pallet wood or garden stakes
- drill and drill bit
Mark a spot on your wood piece where you want the hose clamp ring to hold the mason jar. Mark a spot inside the hose clamp where you want it to attach to the wood piece.
Use a nail or a tap to place a small hole in the clamp where you marked it. Using the drill, add a small hole where you’ve marked the wood so the screw will not split the wood when it’s put in place.
Screw the clamp into place.
Transfer you herb plant into the mason jar.
Pound the stake into the ground near your garden or anywhere you like.
Slip the mason jar into the clamp and use a screw driver to tighten until the mason jar doesn’t slip and is secure.
