Utilizing all your available space to the fullest extent is the goal of square foot gardening, here is an idea for more planting room. These are just stapled together with pneumatic staples and then mounted with screws to the fence, along with a 90 degree L bracket to hold it together. The wood is just cedar dog ear fencing. The dirt is about 60% Compost, 35% Peat Moss, and 5% Vermiculite (this dirt mix is entirely experimental, do your own research before trying it). The boxes are lined with extra painters plastic that I had around.

    Thanks! Fortunately, I don't have much problem finding free pallets…or anything else for that matter…I live in a suburban semi-urban area and there is always a-lot of stuff that people and businesses are throwing out.

    …I have even eaten food I have found in the dumpsters a couple times…

    Always nice chatting with you SeaOtter

    Congrats on graduating! I have seen a video on someone who used a pallet to plant herbs & flowers. I thought it would have also made a nice salad & herb box; but I'm not locating the pallets very easily. Last year for potatoes I used those potato grow bags; you roll them down then as the plant grows you roll them up; only issue I had was TONS of earwigs; they would fall out of the folds of the bags; this year I'm using these big black tote things; no place for earwigs to hide! Good luck! 🙂

    Yeah, hopefully it works good, this evening we got a pretty good down pour and now it looks like some of the lettuce is sprouting, I think I am going to track down a bunch of pallets and make some sort of herb box out of them or maybe a potato bin…we are having alot of fun with the gardens this year.

    In the past I have taken college classes during the summer…this is the first summer I haven't had to go to college. (since I graduated last fall)

    Thanks! –Nate

    I like it! Keeps those pesky rabbits out of the salad greens! I have a beagle for keeping the rabbits out but she's normally napping on the job! Great idea! Now if I only have a wood fence… 🙂
