Circle saw+hammer+sweat equity=hopeful returns on the container garden!

Our neighbor says, "what's new in the Curry garden for '09?" as she looks across the fence into our newly established container gardens. Steve and I decided to "go green" this year and recycle some free pallets to use them for a container garden. Better Homes and Garden's featured the layout in one of their issues this spring, and we thought we'd give it a "go."

Steve spent the better part of 2 days tearing apart pallets and remaking them into boxes for raised gardens. Theoretically, the yield should be better than a "normal" planted garden - we'll see!

We've got tomatoes in, and the seeds for lettuce, pickles, green beans, zucchini, and peas. We're hoping for some canteloup too! We'll keep it updated so that you can see it! We're praying for an abundant crop so that we can share with others.
