    Easy herb garden idea with an old pallet

  • Cathy Batzner

    I think I am going to make a category for pallet ideas!!! But until then, I am going to put this one under garden ideas... Hate weeding? Dont feel like turning up a bunch of grass? Use a pallet as a garden bed - staple garden cloth on the backside of the pallet fill with dirt and start growing!

    Most pallets use treated lumber; you won't want to plant food in one. Wood pallets used to transport food can possibly harbor pathogens such as E. coli and Listeria. However, close contact with pallet wood or inhalation of dusts from sanding or sawing can be a source of exposure to pesticide and fungicide chemicals. It is likely that the January, 2010 recall of Johnson and Johnson Tylenol and other drugs were due to their being stored on wooden pallets that had been treated with the fungicide/pesticide 2,4,6-tribromophenol. This chemical can be degraded by molds to produce tribromoanisole whose strong, musty odor caused consumers to complain. There is no acute or chronic health data on 2,4,6-tribromoanisole,[27] but it is believed that the contaminated drugs caused nausea and other health effects in some people. Just a thought.

Very cool use of space. Most important point made in article, do not plant edible items in pallet unless it has been heat treated (not fumigated). Chemical spinach sounds pretty nasty.

Do this in front yard. Potager - Kitchen garden at Bolen residence. LOVE the use of the large pots to control the amount of water or nutrients herbs need as opposed to the vegetables! "This raised-bed kitchen garden was absolutely stunning and made great use of a narrow space that was formerly used as a dog enclosure. The space was designed by John Fluitt, an Oklahoma landscape designer."

Vertical Garden - saves space, reduces bending, gets veggies off the ground, reduces need for weeding. All win-wins!

an ol' Pallet made into something new- but since these things have been everywhere in pools of anything imaginable or not- so maybe some white wash, lacquer, or stain to ward off the ickies.
