Warm Weekend Wrap-Up & Monday Meraki (#MM) no. 10: Our DIY Garden

Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

Nashville was long overdue for the GORGEOUS weather we saw this weekend. Understandably, I wasn't in the mood to workout indoors, so instead of heading to the gym I opted for a lot of walking around my favorite neighborhoods in Nashville. It was great seeing so many people out and about, enjoying the warmer temperatures!

Here are a couple fun pictures I snapped on Friday afternoon... some window shopping for bicycles and some kitty cats in windows :)

Besides prancing around the city, I managed to get in plenty of squats and planking, and prepped a bunch of fresh produce as snacks for the week.

I did work on one other really fun project this weekend, Matt and I built an herb garden for our back patio! I can't wait to use the fresh herbs for cooking, and we had so much fun building our little garden, I'm making it the feature of this week's Monday Meraki!

Supplies we used:
  • A trusty old pallet
  • About 2.5 large bags of potting soil
  • Landscaping fabric
  • Staples & a staple gun
  • OJ & white wine mimosas
What we planted:
  • Baby spinach
  • Cilantro
  • Creeping Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Sweet basil
  • Mint Julep
  • Lavender Munstead
  • Sage
We also planted some green bean seeds in a planter on our back windowsill & starters for a mix of hot peppers that caught Matt's eye. Apart from the Creeping Thyme and Lavender Munstead, all of the herbs we planted are culinary, and I can't wait to find recipes that call for what we have in our garden!

Thanks for reading, and have a great week!

Today's Question: Do you have any favorite recipes that call for one or more of the herbs that are listed above? I'm pretty new to cooking with fresh herbs. :)
