I think I'm seeing strawberries in a pallet planter.

You'd need a seep hose to keep it watered ???

Perhaps have some sort of non porous liner with planting holes stuffed inside the pallet or else the wood will soak up & evaporate off most of the moisture .. that's why we have to line our hanging backed with a non permeable membrane of sorts.

Good ideas! I wonder about spinach? I could keep it in the shade so as to extend the growing season. Maybe green onions too. Hmmm. Who knows what would grow?!

I'm glad this post came back up. First, I've been looking at that pallet garden and thinking I might do a strawberry patch in it. Not sure how well it would work. I am still in an in between hoping to stop subbing and get my own classroom, may have to move to an apartment place in my life. I was thinking that might be a great way to get a lot of use out of a small patio, if it get's enough sun.

Mean while, at my moms house, she has a large area in the back yard against the house that has no windows (south facing, lots of evening sun). It goes all the way up to the attic. (one story house) I don't know if it's possible or not in reality but I was day dreaming the other day and came up with this idea. I want to build a small square foot box, probably 1x3. Add metal loop screw things (I know technical words) and a rope, using a pulley system attached to the over hang of the roof to create a hanging square foot box that can be lowered to water and harvest, using the pulley. I thought it might be great for hanging tomatoes and other small veggies like cucumbers, tiny cantaloupe. I don't think I'd ever try this, for fear of ruining the house, but it's sound genius (if I do say so my self, lol).

Oooohh! I'm going to for sure try the pallet garden this spring. I'll post some pics when it comes time. If I could find some old gutters I have the perfect place for some of those...hmmmm. Such wonderful ideas! flower

This is cool (and it's on Facebook for those not on FB I don't know if you will be able to see the album). There are a lot of photos on the Container Gardening Alliance FB Page

Camp, that looks like it could be a fun project.

Any thoughts about pros and cons of actually growing the berries? Will they over-winter OK? I have little experience growing strawberries.

For my hardiness zone, this is not suitable for overwintering berry plants.

The photos are from the Philippines. I suppose one could put the containers in a bed of hay and cover with more hay. Or build heated green house over it.
