I wanted to share with you an idea I had.
To make Kitchen Garden Salad Baskets as gifts for friends.
I love making handmade gifts.
I collect baskets from garage sales and thrift stores,
you can find some at a great price.
You know I love to garden.
So why not,
give the gift of a Green Kitchen Garden.
I soaked some moss to add to the finished baskets.
I lined the baskets with some black heavy duty garbage bags,
then filled the baskets with soil.
The nursery had lots of beautiful varieties of lettuce.
Pansies are edible and add lots of color to the baskets.
I listed the different lettuce on a handmade tag,
just in case they wanted to buy more.
A chalkboard sign was just what the baskets needed.
A Simple Kitchen Garden Salad for my Friends.
I made one for me too!!
I had some baskets laying around
that needed some extra help!
I used snapdragons, parsley,
I filled the basket with pansies and moss.
A handwritten sign and it looks brand new again!!
I wanted to make a Herb basket too.
There's nothing like fresh herbs,
right from your kitchen!!
I decided the handle needed a little extra touch.
Some fresh cut rosemary tied with some jute around it.
Looks so pretty and smells so good.
A chalkboard sign for it.
You can always handstamp some wine corks
to place in the baskets too.
It adds a little whimsy!
Now, I have Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme in my Kitchen.
Don't you love that song from Simon and Garfunkel!!
I hope you liked all the baskets.
My friends loved theirs.
I had to make a salad for dinner with
all the goodies from my new garden.
