Not the most thrilling title, and not really the most enthralling subject for a blog post either! Still, I’ve had a chance to do a little more reorganising in my garden and thought I might as well pop it up here. The last bit of pallet recycling involved turning some wooden pallets into a bench for my studio (click here to view that post – you’ll need to scroll down quite a way to see it). However we did have some bits of pallet left, which was annoying as (of course) that means having to dispose of them. Hmm.
So, since November I’ve been pondering on and off how best to use up the rest of the leftovers. I stumbled across a great idea at A Beautiful Mess for creating a vertical garden using old pallets (click here to view); which I loved, but it didn’t really fit right with my own garden, as I have a lot of pot holders which need to hang off horizontal supports. Still, it provided enough inspiration for me to go back to basics and just use the pallet as is.
Just adding a wider board (another leftover from another project!) to the top to make a shelf, on which I will sit troughs full of vegetables come the summer, and voila! One handy pot hanging space, which might not look much now but if you pop back in the summer it’ll be blooming. I may even paint it, you never know.
