I first saw a grill garden on my friend Fern's, Life On The Balcony website and thought it was very cool. In my family, we fit the stereotype and my husband does the grilling. So I thought a "grilling garden," might be a good Father's Day gift idea. However I couldn't find a grill.

Then one day, a perfect little grill mysteriously appeared on my back steps. It took awhile to figure it out, but a friend who knows I'm always looking for unusual (ok, weird) things to use as planters, found one at a yard sale and left it on my doorstep.

I filled it with herbs for grilling and marinades it put it right next to the grill. It was a huge hit.

You don't even need a grill to make a grilling garden, any container will do.

Great idea! And the plants are raised for easy viewing and access instead of being down around your feet.

Thanks Katie! I’ve kept it in my garage over the winter and just checked it and my rosemary, thyme, chives and sage all seem to have survived. Can’t wait for summer!
