While many places are in the middle winter, other parts of the world are still in the middle of their growing season. Have you ever thought of taking a pallet and turning it into a vertical wall to grow crops? The image on my right shows the vertical growing wall just 3 weeks after planting.
Here is what you will need:
- Pallet standing upright
- Mesh lining material to staple to the back of the pallet
- Staple gun
- Potting Mix to fill the pallet from the top.
- A Rake to push the potting mix all the way down to the bottom of the pallet.
Strawberry and cucumber starts are transplanted at the top of the pallet. Smaller seedlings such as salad plants are used for the rest of the pallet. Marigolds are planted at the bottom where some of the potting mix spilled over to help attract bees and keep away possums. You will water the pallet wall starting from the top and on each side of the pallet wall.
