pallet garden

Made a pallet garden this weekend. I realized the whole garden was planted and no zucchini. So I made a new garden.

I had 3 pallets stacked up against the fence, leftover from cinder block delivery. I used cinder blocks to build 3 raised beds.

I spread gardening fabric on the lawn. Yeah, you're supposed to remove the grass. I didn't. Flipped the 3 pallets over onto the fabric. Spread another layer of fabric (white side down). Then I filled the gaps with soil.

I let the soil rest and settle for a day. Then rain was predicted for the next several days, so I planted. Zucchini and summer squash. Hoping for a great crop.

Rain predicted for tonight. Actually, tornadoes too. eek
