A Little Garden

The one thing I miss more than anything is having a huge garden and living in the country.  But really, you don’t need acres of land to enjoy home grown produce.  And for newbies, its super easy!

You know those pallets that are thrown out or you may even have stacked up somewhere?  These are great for little box gardens and can be used in the smallest of places.

On the open sides, you will want to tack in some wood to keep the dirt from spilling out. But other than that no building skills are necessary.   Place the pallet where you want it to stay, preferably over other dirt, lots of sun please.  Fill it with good dirt (maybe a few earth worms to help).  Now brush of the mess off the “Top” of the pallets.  plant your seeds and add your markers.  Water and care for and yes you may even have to pull out a few weeds, but that’s about it.

Then enjoy the earth’s bounty!  This is really great for radishes, lettuce, peppers, spinach, herbs, eggplant, pretty much anything that doesn’t vine or need support.

 

 

Let me know what you think and enjoy!
