Jennifer Perkins is a compulsive crafter, wife and mother living in Austin, TX. You can read more of her crafty escapades on her blog Naughty Secretary Club.

I think each time I go to a flea market my husband sits at home and dreads what I will be bringing home. There was the giant 4 foot tall panda head, the dining room chairs on wheels and once there was a grocery cart. When my husband and his green thumb heard my master plan for the shopping cart all was well on the home front.

SUPPLIES

  • Old Grocery Cart
  • Scissors
  • Potting Soil
  • Herbs
  • Coconut Husk Liners

  1. The first thing to do is cut your husk liners to fit in the baskets of your cart. Dirt will fall right through those small cracks so you have to line it.
  2. After the cart is lined fill with potting soil.
  3. All that is left to do is plant your favorite herbs. Be sure to water your cart frequently as it is like a big hanging basket and will dry out easily.
  4. Harvest your herbs to your hearts content. The nice thing about your herb garden on wheels is you can easily transport it around to catch the best sun and have the easiest access.
