French Cocotte Herb Garden

This is a little project...just in time for the weekend
 I found this cute vintage French cocotte or bean pot 

Most that I have come across are a pinkish terra cotta and have a fully glazed interior 
which makes them a  perfect container for flowers or in this case herbs
 I tucked in some parsley and a little red lettuce

 some mint for my tea

 thyme for the omelets 

 just use any thing you like
 they don't last forever but when they start to fade 
I plant them out side into the "real" garden


a nice little green for the kitchen...and useful too

Cheers, Kelley

  6. What pretty photos! I don't get good enough light inside to grow much of anything, but thank goodness it's summer and everything will grow outside.
