As we enjoyed our fruit harvest this week from our upside down planters, I discussed with the kids and my husband what we wanted to plant next year. I also looked into ideas about how we could implement them into our existing garden. I found some neat ways to re-purpose pallets in our garden and grow our own food.
I found that I can stack some pallets together and make a vertical planter. Vertical planters help to maximize space both vertically and horizontally, which would be great for people with limited space to plant a garden but still want to enjoy a bountiful harvest. It’s important to plant shallow rooted veggies and herbs in these planters. I think this solution could be great for us so we don’t lose too much room of the play space for the kids but still get to have a nice sized garden.
I even found a creative solution to use the pallets to make a green house with sheets of glass layered on top of each section of the pallet. This could be neat to grow different kinds of plants. I’m really excited to try these ideas out in the garden.
