Here are some images of the SFG inside our 24X60' hoop house.  Plants are in full swing and I'm starting to pull many to make room for fall sowing.

Me and the green beans.  On the opposite end of this support are Spaghetti Squash.

The Spaghetti squash are HUGE.  The #1 question I get asked is won't the nylon netting cut through the squash stems.  The answer is NO.

Long view from the end of the greenhouse.  There's so much going on here I can't describe it.

Finally, the Red potatoes did amazing this year in my pallet beds.

Every time it hails I think about growing totally in the greenhouse.

WOW Lynn
what a great garden. I lived for about 13 years down in Bandon, just north of you, and so I can see the need for the greenhouse. People find it odd that I moved so far north and am finally able to grow things, but in Bandon I needed to have a greenhouse to have anything but potatoes.
Looks like yours is a good size too.

SFG in the greenhouse Empty Pallet Raised Beds

Post  rillgardens 7/23/2014, 5:44 pm

Pallet grow beds have a tendency to be controversial.  You will find a lot of info online about how the wood is treated, not to be used for growing food.....So please do your research and don't take my word for it.  Look for a pallet that has HT stamped somewhere on the pallet. This means the pallet was heat treated, or kiln dried as opposed to chemically treated.  I really didn't care as the pallets we used came from the School District and had #10 cans of food stacked on them for use in the cafeteria. 

Here is how we built ours.  We secured pallets that are the same size.  Who knew there were so many different sized pallets?  Good news for us is our local school district receives products on pallets.  They put them in a designated location for free.  

We use a saws all and cut the centers out of the pallets, stacked them 3 high, added a liner (heavy duty weed block cloth)  filled with Mel's Mix and there you go!  

The only real problem I've found is since so much of the weed cloth is open to the air because of the open sides of the pallets, the beds do tend to dry out quickly.  If I were to do it again I would use something like recycled pool liner or some type of 6 mil plastic on the sides and the weed block on the bottom.

Good thing is the pallets we used were 4 X 4 so the SFG method works well in them.

Me.  I work for a company that manufactures wooden pallets.  Custom made to whatever size the customer wants.

My 10 x 20 greenhouse is like most people's, mostly for winter.  That's because we have intense sun and heat here where we spend about 2 months over 100 degrees in the summer.

Isn't it amazing how very different our conditions for growing are and yet how we all find a way to make it work?!  

To make my greenhouse work in the summer I have had a professional shade cloth cover made to put over the top for the summer - it allows the sunlight through but not the heat.  It's almost the same temp as out side and actually more comfortable as it softens the piercing heat rays, rather than 130+ that it would be without it.  

Thanks for the reminder on the HT on palettes.  My son-in-law was going to get me a large quantity of them but he just left that job!  I'll have to ask if he can still secure them for me or not.
