For many of us, this year’s planting season has passed. But if you’re lucky enough to live in a mild climate, setting up outdoor herb containers is a great way to continue growing your own food well into the fall months.

Dreamed up by Stuff Steph Does blogger Steph Hayward, these cute tin can planters are a unique way to put your herb garden on display. And they only take about 30 minutes to make!

So, gather up a few cans (Hayward used coffee cans to give her plants more root space), and check out this simple photo tutorial to get your garden going in no time.

Tip: If you live in a cooler state and just can’t wait to start your mini garden, you can also set up these planters indoors. But be sure to keep them over a hard, easy-to-clean surface. Like most potted plants with drainage holes, water may leak out occasionally.

Even if you live in a mild climate, play it safe and opt for herbs that thrive in slightly cooler conditions, such as thyme, oregano and sage.
