When planning out your garden area this year don’t forget to set aside room for a herb garden. There is nothing like walking outside and picking fresh herbs for recipes or dehydrating for later use. Growing herbs is simple, inexpensive and saves a significant amount of money compared to a store bought product.

There are many different methods for building a small herb patch but one of my favorites is a herb wheel planter. Below is an overview of one that lloydhumphreys93 built for his mother which could be easily modified with pallet wood.

I ended up putting it on castors because it was really heavy & I figured we wouldn’t be able to move it once we’d put soil in it. Source
