I am so happy with how it turned out.
Last Mother's Day I asked for the buckets and a rail so I could do a kitchen herb garden in the window. So DH came through and I got it.
Hubby hung the rail and I promptly planted some herbs Rosemary, Thyme, Basil and Oregano.
A week later, they were all dead.
I have the blackest thumb ever! And water is an issue for me—usually too little.
After looking at the carcasses of my poor plants for like 9 months I finally decided that I would do something about it.
The kitchen window gets really good light so I had to plant something that likes sun and is pretty much idiot proof.
They love light.
And don't need a ton of water…
Yes, these are Maria plants.
Not to mention the fact that they completely brighten up the view of my yard.
I purchased all 4 at my local hardware store for about $3/plant.

I already had the planting soil and obviously the planters. I mixed the potting soil with some leftover coffee grounds (I've been saving them for months now to use as fertilizer this summer.
