I built this garden on wheels for my mother in law for Mother's Day out of pallet wood, I even included a worm farm in the middle.

Re: Mobile veg garden.

Good one @Glenc. Is that shade cloth used to keep the soil in? And you've just made some holes for the plants?

Re: Mobile veg garden.

I used weed mat material that keeps the soil in place while still allowing it to breathe and not get waterlogged.

Excellent use of recycling. Deb just saw this and guess what? I have to build a couple.

The worm farm in the middle is a 150mm pvc pipe with lots and lots of small holes drilled in it. Put a cap on top and it's done. The worm farm fertilizes while disposing of your vegetable waste.

Re: Mobile veg garden.

Recycled Pallets have been used 100 to 1000 times often to carry toxic chemicals. NEVER USE THEM IN GARDENS OR AS FIRE WOOD I know people that have been hospitalised from this ...
