I love mason jars and I am so excited to share this mason jar herb garden. It’s a project that took less than an hour, requires no power tools and I got it right the first time! The supply list is short and inexpensive. And the best part of this fun farmhouse project was my family was impressed with the addition to a quiet kitchen corner (the corner on the left next to the window).
I didn’t even know what plumbing clamps were and even though I knew they were in the plumbing aisle, I wasn’t sure where or what I was looking for once I got there. And of course, I was trying to play it cool… you know like I didn’t need help from an associate. Needless to say I was psyched when I found the plumbing clamps. These clamps are stocked in several sizes. I think I grabbed the medium size clamps. When in doubt go up a size because it just takes a pair of pliers to snip off the excess strap.
I bought 3 plumbing clamps with the attached clamps to tighten each one. I stained a piece of scrap wood in my lumber stash in the garage. I
measured eyeballed the spacing between the clamps down the length of the board. I used tiny screws (technical term) to the board. The small clamps on the side are used to tighten the clamp around the mason jar.
I filled the jars with gravel and potting soil after I attached the jars. I would suggest filling each jar with the gravel, soil and the herbs before securing into the clamp. It’s just easier. I ended up with more soil on the floor than in the jar when I attempted to add the soil after the mason jar was attached.
