I should have just dumped all that good expensive garden soil ON THE GROUND WHERE IT BELONGED!!!! Patara From Appalachia Homestead put up a video last week and I almost FEEL flat on my face. for just a couple weeks before that I was walking in my garden BY MY WEED INFESTED PALLET DISCUSSING my BIGGEST GARDEN FAILURE…THE PALLETS!

    Thanks for talking me out of it, I was just about to use one for strawberries. Guess I will rethink my strawberry plantings.

    Not only what you said, but, if the pallet came from over seas, it may have been sprayed with a pesticide, to kill unwanted bugs getting transported from one country to another. Also with overseas shipping, some companies may spray an anti rust inhibitor on untreated area's of machinery which would drip onto the pallet. Also, that pallet may have been set in some grease, motor oil, chemical, etc. that you don't want your herbs or veggies growing in. I wouldn't advise pallets.

    great informative video again. I am not surprised that there is not much "luck" in growing stuff on a pallet. if it worked people would have been doing it a long time ago, Love Joyce
