A truly recycled project.

I've been complaining for a while about all the bending I have to do, in reference to the herb garden. After all, I'm not getting any younger.

My husband made a new exterior staircase for one of his customers and before he disposed of the old staircase we decided to re-purpose it.

There is something about all this recycling stuff that really makes sense. We now have a "Stairway to Herbs." I'm so happy with it! Now all I have to do is go out to the herbs and snip away! No more bending for me. If you haven't tried using fresh herbs I suggest that you start small. Maybe a few small pots of herbs on a window sill or near a kitchen window. Perfect for apartment's or homes without too much garden space.

So, the next time you hear of someone who's going to replace their exterior stairway and you also have some ground level potted herbs, that could use a step up, let them know that you are interested in taking away the old steps... for FREE. Then you can enjoy your "Stairway to Herbs." Just like we do!

Until we meet again... Francesca27

      Really a good idea for anyone who want to conserve space and also their back! This would work on an apartment balcony to make room for

      more plants. Great idea!

      The more I read your hubs, the more I think about starting a garden of my own. What a great way to recycle steps. I really like how this looks.
