Not sure where I got this, perhaps off Facebook somewhere, but I have to say, it’s pretty cool!
I’m guessing that this is good for shallow rooted plants, like lettuces and such. Some herbs maybe? I might set one up in the garden and see how it grows. I like the idea of using the available space between the slats… it looks so net and tidy!
We just got done today making two trips with Blue and Steve’s truck… ah… Red. (gg) I’m pretty sure that he has not named his truck but it’s red, so we have been calling it Big Red. haha… I digress…
We went twice to our pallet hunting grounds and scored big! 4 loads worth… Probably about 30 or 40 pallets and a few weird pieces of wood and such. Some are better than others but that’s okay, they work just fine for some of our evil plans. We roughly sorted them in the courtyard as to size and condition, but it was too dark to take a picture. It’s kind of funny looking… like a pallet display yard! We got some nice heavy duty ones with solid platforms and some small sturdy ones, a pair of long ones, easily 6 or 8 feet long. Those will be nice as fencing. And I think I have JUST the spot for them!
Tomorrow, in the daylight, we’ll sort through them and see where we think they might work out nicely. I know that we need about 2 or 3 to finish the garden fence. I want a few nice consistent sturdy ones to go between the sheep shack and the big barn. It’s a span of about 18 feet. I want to be able to make a little gate and then fence that area off. I want to build a nice formal compost bin in the garden. Maggie wants 4 nice solid ones for her turkey shelter. There are a couple I’d like to use to make a firewood shelter by the firepit with. And the rest will go into building a fence from the big barn back to the woodlot in the back pasture. And maybe a couple for trying a raised bed like the picture!
Should be fun! Let the pallet sorting begin!!!Pin It
