So thanks, everyone, for being patient while the Garden Project of the Week took a two-week hiatus! We don't have a lack of ideas around here, but last week we were running a contest on JPGD, and this week, I've been at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show getting all sorts of ideas for new garden projects for you. This week, I'd like to highlight fellow crafty girl and balcony gardener extraordinaire Fern Richardson of Life on the Balcony. Fern is a powerhouse of garden writing and blogging, and she came up with this idea to plant a pallet garden using those old wooden pallets that are used to transport materials: This project is great for those who garden in small horizontally-challenged spaces (balconies, patios, terraces)--but any gardener who wants a cool vertical element should consider this. It satisfies my stringent requirements, too--super cool, easy, relatively inexpensive, no fancy tools or skilz needed. Well done, Fern!
