I’ve been obsessed with the idea of using pallets as raised beds since I first saw this little beauty on Pinterest:
And now I have my own! Three of them, as a matter of fact. Since I can’t do any lifting this required me annoying the hell out of my husband until he found me a source of pallets, loaded up my car with them, and placed them exactly where I wanted them. I decided on against the lattice wall of the garage (why our garage has a lattice wall is another story entirely, one of those seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time things). Then I convinced John to help me put landscape fabric under all the pallets and staple it in place. This really didn’t take much convincing once I told him he had complete control of the staple gun. Once Michael and John filled these up with topsoil (about fourteen cubic feet if you’re really interested) John and I started planting.
Now if I can just keep the mutant ninja squirrels and the rabbits away from these I may just have a chance at some home-grown veggies of my very own this summer! I’ll be linking up to Oh, How Pinteresting, Works for Me Wednesday, Whatever Goes Wednesday, and The Mommy Club Resources and Solutions.
