Super Cool Garden Project

I discovered this idea on Pinterest and set out to find a pallet. You can go to the original post, How To Turn a Pallet Into a Garden, she gives far better details than I ever could.

I am very pleased with how this turned out. I do wish I had started it earlier, I wanted to have more herbs in it and my local garden store was sold out by the time I put it together. I did dig up some thyme and marjoram out of my own garden to put in there.


I have lettuce, Swiss chard, alyssum (white and purple), dusty miller (it was the only other kind of flower on the five dollar a flat wagon), basil, marjoram, thyme, a few fillers here and there and viola!


Isn’t it so clever??

Let me remind those of you who have commented that I am ‘so creative’, that while I do have possibly a teeny bit of God given creativity, most of it is copied from other people, and I am okay with that.

PS: This is Brian, and I would like to point out that Michelle is currently battling the enemy and his lies.(note the previous paragraph)  As you woman know, she is extremely creative and wonderfully talented in many areas.

I saw this online a couple of weeks ago and showed my hubby. We're just trying to find a good place to mount one, (don't want to ruin our siding)
Yours is lovely. And for what it's worth I get all of my best ideas from other people. After all imitation is the greatest form of flattery!

Brian, thanks for the heads up ... I will be praying for Michelle and your entire family. What a blessing and inspiration you have been to me. I, too, continue to battle the enemy's lies and deceit and this blog and Michelle's testimony has been such inspiration to me! Michelle, if I had one word for you it would be to establish yourself in the fact that you are not fighting "for" victory - you already have it ... you are fighting FROM victory!! Jesus ALREADY did it all!! I know you know that - but it never hurts to hear it again, eh? :) God Bless You and know that I'm praying!!

Hi Michelle, I don't think I have ever commented on your blog but felt inspired to now. I kind of know you from church and I saw you at Angie's. I love both your blogs and love your ideas. So what if they are borrowed. That's how we learn. From each other. Thank you JESUS for your healing, and thank you JESUS for a tuned in husband. You are so blessed. Your projects are awesome and I hope I can find the creativity to at least try some of them. lol. Hugs. Kim
