Winter Blues Got Me Building Indoor Gardens

I miss dirt and sunlight and the color green so bad! I was checking out my seeds and decided to bust out some diy skills and put together a space for a herb garden in my kitchen.

If you’ve read about my kitchen then you’re aleady aware it has exactly zero available square inches of space for anything. Except for right above the sink which I’ve never been sure what to do with:

I had built myself a floating shelf last year but never used it and it was too big to fit between the cupboards. I had to saw off one end to get it to fit. Yes, in the middle of the kitchen; it’s a hundred degrees below sub-zero outside:

I put some hooks in the ceiling of the space to hang a grow light:

And popped the shelf into the nook!

I had some leftover tack-paper I bought off of Amazon for the fridge project I did here:

So I stuck it on the back wall because the back wall was just badly-painted plywood and looked gnarly.

I just planted the herbs so they’re sitting in the stairwell where it gets really warm to germinate.

It’ll do!

Happy Homesteading Xx

  1. I find that I am having a hard time waiting for Spring. My seeds came in the mail yesterday, but I haven’t been home long enough to take them out and admire them.
    My husband did confirm they were dry and they had arrived though. πŸ™‚ I like this idea over the sink, and I like how you reused the contact paper from the fridge project.

    1. Thank you! One of my favorite things is garden planning. I have accumulated wayy too many seeds over the last two seasons so this year I won’t be ordering new and instead am looking at starting a seedshare program in my community as well as through my Facebook page 😊
