Happy Earth Day everyone! I’m so excited that it’s getting warmer. This means my green thumb (or lack of one) is itching to start growing stuff. I’m hoping to plant a pallet garden in the next few weeks with soil from my compost. For added inspiration, I thought I would throw in some other ideas on how to recycle old pallets! They are everywhere if you’re looking in the right spots. This is the one I would like to try for my own pallet garden:
I love that you don’t need to build anything and that it can essentially go anywhere! Has anyone tried this? I would love to hear your tips and how it turned out!
Here’s another great way to plant a garden if you have a small balcony.
I love this idea for bringing in color and greenery!

If you have more space, this is a great way to get a garden up off the ground!
And where should you keep your tools for your pallet garden? Well on a pallet of course!
Pallets are always on Craigslist for free. Also, try asking your local hardware store or paint store.
I can’t wait to get growing! Of course, with Virginia weather, I better wait until after Mother’s Day! Isn’t that what they say? Just yesterday, I thought I would try to get a head start with lettuce. I heard that if you put the end of lettuce in water and in the sun that they will grow back in days. We will see what happens!
As a side note, here are some beautiful blossoms that are surrounding my house!
I hope everyone does something a little extra green today! Happy Monday!
