Thanks for your comment AfricanAussie on a previous post. You noticed my vertical garden. It is made from a pallet we picked up from our local hardware store's carpark. We picked up a few actually from a large pile left out for scrap.
We have placed it just outside the kitchen door, and so we have filled it with herbs, and a few flowers. There is parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (I feel a little song coming on) and oregano and chives. We also put in some lettuce and tatsoi, some chamomile, pyrethrum and delphiniums and some strawberries.
It has the added advantage of stopping the grand kids falling off the verandah!
This Saturday we will be running two workshops for Newcastle council. The first will be on composting and worm farms, and the second on container gardening. We have built another smaller pallet garden for the workshop. I'll take some photos of that and the other gardens we have in mind, and post them next week.
