Spring is my favorite time of year. I am planning my garden and can’t wait until things start growing. Here is the palette garden I created last year.
I was at a friend’s house and I was admiring her lettuce pallet. She stapled
landscape fabric over the back (bottom) of the pallet and then filled it
in with dirt. I suggested that the fabric be stapled across the bottom
of each row of the pallet. She said go for it and sent me home with a
pallet. I already had the landscape fabric, so I got it set up right
away. I decided to stand it up against our shed in the backyard. This is
what it looked like before we added dirt.
is what it looked like today after I planted some spinach and spring
mix. I marked the type of seeds I planted with the date on the pallet. I
will plant more in a week or 2 so that my harvest is spread out.
Here is the lettuce starting to grow.
Unfortunately it was a very HOT summer and the lettuce didn’t thrive. I planted the year’s seeds last week. I am doing some green lettuce & strawberries. We’ve had a lot of rain since I planted so I haven’t had to water at all. The heavy rain might have moved or washed away the seeds. Time will tell…
