I don’t know about you, but I love Chick-Fil-A salads! They’re so delicious! And seriously, the best fast food salad I’ve ever eaten. So, I throw away a lot of salad containers. This past month in my Chick-Fil-A Mom’s club we were challenged to Upcycle our salad containers.
Since my kids have taken over my herb garden space with their wildflowers this year. Seriously, all my outside space is now wildflowers! It’s so pretty!
But, I still want an herb garden, so this Chick-Fil-A challenge was perfect!
1. Chick-Fil-A salad containers (I used the large salad containers and the little one from the superfood side as well)
2. Seeds (pick your favorite herbs)
3. Potting Soil
Step 1: Put soil in your containers
Step 2: Add seeds and gently cover with soil
Step 3: Lightly water
Step 4: Put lids on the containers – these Chick-Fil-A lids are perfect for tiny greenhouses because they have little holes in them already!
Store with lids on at night and remove lids during the day so the plants get enough sunlight. Water as needed. In a few days you’ll start seeing some sprouts!
This was super easy, and now I have my favorite herbs growing right in my kitchen!
This point is also a good time to transplant your herbs to outside if you’d rather grow them outside after getting the seeds started.
