DIY Vertical Herb Garden ~ Part 2

A continuation from Part 1. I finally finish my Vertical Garden!!!
Refer to Part 1 for a Materials list.
I left off from Part 1 with creating the tilted shelves. Before I attached them to the 1x2s I cut out 3 holes to place the pots in. Once I had the first board cut out I used it as a template to cut the other 4 boards.
Now, for those pesky squirrels and chipmunks.... I planned to add a screen door! Still allows sunlight and air but hopefully {fingers crossed} it keeps those little buggers out of my herbs! I started by putting together a basic door that fit within the frame of the Garden.
And the door is ready to go! I laid the Garden on it's back to attach the hinges and locks.
I had some hinges on-hand but they were bright gold. The locks I purchased were silver so that wasn't going to work. I laid everything out on a cardboard box. I stuck the screws into the box so the heads sat upright. And then I brought out the spray paint! Once they were dried I attached them to the Garden and the door frame.
I was hoping the Garden would be fairly light but that sucker was heavy. Now I just need a few more herbs. What should I buy to fill in the Vertical Herb Garden? So far I've purchased:
Lemon Thyme
