Now Playing Tracks

New planter box! It’s made entirely out of recycled/repurposed materials except for the brand new screws and staples we used to hold it together. Sides are made of four different cut up pallets and there’s burlap stapled to the interior to keep dirt sifting out between the slats. The pallets and burlap came from our neighboring coffee roaster.

Now I just have to fill it with dirt. about three cubic yards worth. SO MANY WHEELBARROWS OF DIRT. The bottom 1/3 is actually just going to be all the sand we swept up from winter and downed wood, then we’ll put real topsoil in.  We;ll also throw in a bunch of the chaff from from the coffee roaster, which is slightly acidic, which will balance out any of the salt left in the sand.


The lone daffodil is actually in a pot INSIDE the planter. we built it around some barrel planters that were disintegrating after several years and an encounter with the plow this winter.  The daffodils and some squill were the only things that survived, so once new dirt is added, it’ll be all new plants.
