Last night after I watered the pallet garden I snapped a few pictures so you could see how it’s coming along. To be honest, I think I get more bang for my buck with the pallet garden in the spring and fall.
Using the pallets to grow cool weather crops like lettuce is not only a space saver but it looks better too. And you know when your’e a gardener living in suburbia, you gotta have that cool factor. 😉
I’m not sure what happened, but the strawberries are growing like crazy all the sudden.
This is just one strawberry plant and as you can see it’s loaded.
I ended up picking a little more than a half quart of juicy berries. They may not look as good as the ones they sell in the grocery stores, but let me tell you Bob, they taste a heck of a lot sweeter.
After a little pruning, the celery is starting to come back to life. This won’t be picked until fall anyway so it still has plenty of time to grow.
And the Swiss chard I transplanted from the greenhouse last month is looking good as well.
And last but not least, the green beans! I should be picking them by this time next week!
Yee-Haw, backyard gardening is cool.
How about YOU? Have you ever tried growing anything in a wood pallet before?
