This upright kitchen garden is perfect for small spaces. I designed it to be easy to build in a small space, with a limited budget, and with limited tools. All you need to construct it is a saw, a drill, and some wood.

Free plans and more info on this project:

And how I made the sign:

Great video as usual. I like the shift to DIY projects around the yard with limited tools! Production quality is way up there!

Hello Steve

A nice video as usual and a particular attention for the words in french
” Herbes pour la cuisine”
You can also say : “plantes aromatiques pour la cuisine ”
I like it !!!

Thanks for sharing

More great videos. I couldn’t help to remember an old TC episode, maybe Night Court. “What are you drinking?”
“Herb Tea”. “That’s not Herb Tea, Thats Herb!” ( from Herb’s Urn) Not a gardener but I would like to try this.

Cool video. I shared it with my brother who was looking for an idea to hide a chain link fence.

Nicely done Steve. Another hit. Oh, and I love the tilt on the sign. My kind of touch. Thanks again for sharing. You brightened my day.

Steve, another great project, but PLEASE make yourself a nice rolling work/craft table for all those great projects. My knees and back hurt every time I see you down on your driveway puttin things together. I made a small one like Norm A. made years back. It works great. Lookin forward to next week as usual.
