    Love what you guys are doing btw. I have been looking into pallet gardens
    in Australia for a few days. My thoughts so far are; companion plant enough
    of the basic kitchen herbs that like living with each other so that it
    meets the households total herb needs each week. use 4 or more water cups
    filled with pebbles inside the pallet.soil, with articulated water pipes to
    the top so that you can fill up these reservoirs each morning and the roots
    of the plants can find their way into contact with as much water as they
    want and holds enough moisture to encourage worms and other microbial
    organisms to live with ease; I was thinking of using coffee bags (heashen
    sacks) instead of plastic garden sheets, these are free from most large
    coffee importers, this works as a membrane to hold moisture in and let it
    out too. also my feeling is to sprout seeds in the same location as your
    garden then plant them into the pallet just after they grow two or three
    branches, allowing each whole plant to grow into the soil and irrigation
    structure so they develop strong roots. Most potted herbs we buy here in
    Australia have dozens of seedlings in the same pot. I have found that each
    individual seedling will grow into a full plant, but when they are planted
    all together their roots become interwoven and break when you try and
    separate them also if you leave them together they fight each other and
    cant achieve the full plant structure. To fasten the pallets to the ground.
    I was thinking three star posts through the pallets into the ground, double
    the hight of the pallet, or three 2by4 3 foot lengths of wood nailed to the
    base of the pallet or nailing a framing board to a wall and clipping the
    pallet to that.

    With the dog running around (and making messes) and the rabbits that visit,
    we thought the plants would like it better if they were higher off the
    ground. And we like the fact that we can move the garden in case the 120
    degree heat is too intense. Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. I have a question; it looks like you have a beautiful large yard. Is there
    a reason why you chose to plant your garden in a pallet as apposed to in
    the ground?
