Yesterday I was hand watering the pallet gardens and snapped a few pictures so you could see how some of the vegetables are growing.
Sadly everything in the garden has to be watered by hand because we have no drip irrigation or sprinklers set up. Luckily though we live in the Pacific Northwest and we typically don’t have super hot summers so I can get away with watering about every 3 days or so. Unless of course it rains, and then I can wait a bit longer.
I some celery in a pallet last year and it did great so I decided to grow it again this year. So far so good.
Even though I have no idea what variety of lettuce this is, I am in love with it. The leaves are super thick and the colors are amazing. I can’t wait to try it.
The spinach I started under grow lights is looking great too.
Here is what all six pallets look like right now. Pretty neat huh?
Even though I don’t think you’d be able to grow more food in a pallet than you would in a traditional garden bed, I still think it’s neat to try new things.
What do you think?
Would you consider growing your vegetables in a wood pallet?
