Holy Pallet Garden, Batman!

Pallet Garden
Now that we had a good soaking rain last week, the pallet garden is getting into the swing of things...
I've been eating salad every day from our plentiful Romaine lettuce patch.  That's squash in the middle of it which will continue after the lettuce has bolted.

And my herbs are doing well.  I've got tons of cilantro and parsley now.  I need to make more Mexican food to use up the cilantro before it gets too hot.

Pallet GardenI figured out that the sprinklers weren't hitting the cucumbers.  So now that I'm watering them regularly, they should start to grow.  I can't wait to see how they do on the pallet trellis.

Cabbages are growing big.  I hope they finish before it gets too hot.  I will definitely plant them this fall so they'll have a longer growing period.

Fuji is helping to show you the potatoes and carrots.  They are growing insanely!

The potatoes are starting to flower.  I hope that means they're almost ready!

Until next time...

A good use of pallets. I am looking forward to pics of the plants climbing up the trellis as well. I may have to give this a try next summer.
