When you are considering where to plant spices you want to use in your evening meals, consider a "gutter garden" that is elevated. This one is six feet across and has two side elements for hanging decorative plants you don't want eaten by rabbits! I like to use thyme, basil, cilantro, parsley in my cooking...and I prefer to pick it within a few minutes of its use. Chuck used reclaimed wood to cover the framework on the one shown, and it's angled out, sturdy but movable, should we want to change its location at a later date! The open air flows through and keeps away white mold, black spot and bugs, even on the most humid days, and it cannot be considered a "fence" requiring potential HOA approval, which is another blessing! Consider planting vines growing up it, like nasturtiums, which are edible, have a peppery taste, and make a beautiful presentation in a summer salad.
