Potting Bench Sneak Preview

Right off my back porch, I have a little herb garden.  I am always puttering around
there because I love to nurture the fragrant herbs and snip them for recipes.
Although I have a potting shed, I also wanted a spot to keep some essentials close
by and to provide a backdrop for the herb garden.

So I have created a potting bench from a ....  (it's a surprize), but I am only going to
give you a sneak peak today.  As you can see ...

my creation started with a thrift shop find and then just kept on growing.
Woops ~ bad pun.  Why do I do that?  Can't really help it, I am the
queen of bad puns.  Anyway, the weather here has been really rainy, so I have
to step out for pics between the raindrops.  

But ...

Tomorrow I will (hopefully) be taking lots of pics to show you all my whole
herb garden ~ potting bench and all.  In the meantime, check out that 
Arugula in the basket.  I'll be snipping that off for a salad with cannellini beans
and chopped shallots tossed with a vinaigrette.  Yummo!

So until tomorrow ~ stop by and visit ~


Bentley has dirty paws.  He has been racing through the garden beds
chasing the squirrels.  Maybe we need an outdoor shower!

Susan and Bentley

    Big Hugs to you,

  4. I can't wait to see your potting bench. I love what you have shown us so far. I am so excited ~ I love potting benches. Your arugula looks just yummy ~ Bentley stay out of the garden for your mommy ~ only when it rains. It must be much easier to bath Bentley than Chessie ;-)

  5. Hi Susan, beautiful post. Loved your decoupage bucket on your other post too. It turned out beautiful.
    You have beautfiul projects and I am so impressed with all your photos.
    Have a lovely week. And I'm praying for your mother too. I read that as well.

  6. Hi Susan, for about half a second, I entertained thoughts of buying herb plants while at the nursery today. It sounds like fun, until I remember the efforts one must take. Hope you join Linky for those of us on it now. I know others would also enjoy following you on Linky. Thanks, Helen

  7. Herbs are lovely and great for cooking. Wanting to see the potting bench.
    It's a great time of year.

  8. Hi Susan and Bentley Sweeties...
    Oh your herbs and plants look so lush and happy. You do have a green thumb sweetie. I have never tried herbs but maybe it is about time I gave it a try.

    I can't wait to come back and take a closer look at your treasure that you have created with such love. Potting bench come on down...

    Hope you and Bentley have a glorious day tomorrow. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
