DIY Palette Garden

It’s not too late folks, to get that garden going. Fall vegetables enjoy the sun with cooler temperatures, and will thrive when started this time of year. Broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, lettuce, spinach and radish just to name a few, will do beautifully in many zones when planted in late July and early August.  I’ve been wanting to build a raised bed garden, and of course the summer has gotten away from me. I found the perfect solution in a ready made palette. No need to spend a lot on lumber for this project or find the time to build a traditional raised bed. Shipping palettes are often discarded and can be found readily at stores in your community. Simply place in a sunny spot and fill with a mixture of  soil and compost. Sow your seeds, water, watch and wait, and you’ll be enjoying a fall harvest in no time. A beautiful addition to your garden, good enough to eat.
