Pallet Garden in 7 Easy Steps10:30 AM
I had a garden once when I was a little girl. It was a family affair. This time I wanted it to be my garden. I wanted to make it, and I wanted the joy of harvesting the goodies. (I didn't mean for that to sound like a two year old tantrum. oops.)
What You'll Need:
hammer and nails
something to poke holes with (a nail will work)
spray paint (optional)
sticker paper (optional)
My parents bought a swing-set for the littles. The best part of this swing-set was the pallet that it came on. I was thrilled!
Step 1: Find a hammer and knock every other top board out. This makes room for the plants.
Step 2: (optional) For a personalized touch I drew and cut out letters to spell "GARDEN" on sticker paper.
and then spray-painted over the letters, and pealed them off.
I love how it turned out!
Step 3: Nail a tarp to the bottom of the pallet so that the dirt won't fall out. Caleb helped me with this part.
This ^ was the bottom part of the pallet when we had finished nailing it in.
Step 4: Poke holes in the tarp so the the water can drain out, but not so big that the dirt will come out.
This was the finished product!!
Step 5: Draw pictures of everything that you planted and laminate them so they won't get wet when it rains. Then duck tape them to sticks.
Step 6: Add dirt
Step 7: Plant your seeds/plants
I planted eggplant, bell peppers, okra, and yellow squash. Everything came up but the eggplant. Apparently eggplant seeds are difficult to grow.
This was the final produce!
