Terra Cotta Tiered Herb Garden (Container Gardening)

How to create your own Tiered Herb Garden to spruce up your patio or deck and spice up your meals. #wmtmoms #walmart #gardening
The weather in North Texas has been absolutely beautiful the last couple months. All these spring like temps have really made me anxious to get started on a few gardening and outdoor projects. 

One project I want to tackle this year is planting an outdoor herb garden. Nothing too fancy, just something small, so I have fresh herbs on hand for cooking. I love using fresh herbs, but they can be pretty pricey in the grocery store, so the best solution is just growing your own. 

Last month we planted our vegetable garden and it's pretty full, so I don't want to overcrowd, it by by adding any additional herb plants. After looking at quite a few options I settled on creating a Terra Cotta Tiered Herb Garden.  

A couple years back, I made a tiered flower planter and I got so many compliments on it. A friend shared a video with me for a tiered herb planter and I couldn't believe I didn't think of it myself. It was exactly like my tiered flower planter, but using fresh herbs instead. 

I love container gardening, because it can spruce up just about any outdoor area and they're also the perfect solution for small spaces. When Walmart asked me to create a home or outdoor project I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

Oven Roasted Potatoes & Smoked Sausage

Sliced smoked sausage roasted together with potatoes, onions, spices, and topped with a light sprinkling of cheddar cheese. 
Today I have a quick and easy recipe to share that's also the perfect one dish meal. Smoked sausage is my youngest sons favorite, so I'm always on the look out for new recipes. This recipe for Oven Roasted Potatoes & Smoked Sausage was one that I found on Pinterest via Recipes from The Big Blue Binder a couple weeks back. 

This recipe is super simple to make and perfect for those nights when you still want a home cooked meal, but it needs to be quick and easy. I also love that everything is roasted together in one pan. Serve with your favorite veggie and a garden salad to complete the meal.
