Inspiring Pallet Gardening Ideas

Easy directions:
1. arrange similar-sized pallets in a neat stack
2. fill the stack with potting soil/topsoil
3. insert your starter plants or seeds
4. water!

The pallet boards keep your rows neat and act like a natural barrier to moisture loss, keeping plants healthy. This next idea will save your legs and back! No more bedding or crouching to pull weeds and plate. Standard pallets are approximately 5" in height. So, a stack of 6 or 7 pallets will create the right working level for the average person. Adjust to your preferred height by adding or removing a pallet. An additional benefit from this gardening trick includes keeping your tender plants up off the ground, away from nibbling visitors. Also, arranged in a row, multiple pallet garden stacks for a perfect "fence" to delineate any boundary.

Radishes are in season! Pick up a bundle this Wednesday from Haliburton Farm. They make a great snack dipped in a little bowl of coarse sea salt from Vancouver Island Salt Co. found at Island Spice Trade. Use them on an oh-so-French sandwich with fresh baked bread from The French Oven Bakery and sunflower sprouts from Salt Spring Island Sprouts & Mushrooms. Toss thin sliced radishes with orange sections, baby arugula and fresh goat cheese from Salt Spring Island Cheese for a pretty and refreshing salad, or discover a whole new flavor profile when you roast them. Now that's a rad dish!
