Here's what I've been working on the last couple of weeks,
Everything is brand new, all made from recycled pallets I get at work and there is still a ton of work to do. By the time I'm finished with the
fourth phase of my plan I will have covered the whole south wall of my garage, finished with hanging troughs and trellises. It should be a green wall
of veggies by late summer if everything goes right.
This is a potato box I put together this weekend. It's deep, another twenty inches or so of soil to fill in as the plants grow. The pile of dirt next
to it is my fig, and a couple shade shrubs.
Notice the giant grape vine growing across the fence.
A close up of the new potato box. I had thought I'd have enough time, but the spuds had a plan of their own to take over the whole planter they were
in and had to be transplanted. They're two weeks and 15 inches already. I'm gonna call them Godzilla potatoes.
This was phase one finished last week or so.
Here is the beginning of phase 4, the garage wall which is on it's way, haven't really started phase 3 yet... More cukes, watermelon and
Tomatoes hanging underneath and hot peppers up top
Here's the first cucumber trough.
Don't have pics of the herbs yet, but they're on the way...
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's pics as the summer progresses! Maybe as fall sets in we can share some recipes for canning and all
that as well...
