This is the area I'm building more pallet grow boxes. It's a method whereas I can grow food. So far I have 10 boxes made, filled, and planted with potatoes.
Here's a quick description of how I make these....
... I cut the pallets in half retaining both cross pieces for stability, then screw four together into a box. I'll use pieces from the discarded section to fill in any big gaps on the sides of each box.
... To make them more visually pleasing, I paint the sides.
... Next I place cardboard on the bottom to help keep the grass farm growing up through the soil. Then I line the sides of the box with some air resistant material. Currently I'm using black plastic trash bags.

... Then the boxes get filled with my homemade compost. After watering and settling for a couple days, I'll plant them.
|Coarse compost fills most of the box, then compost is used to top it off and plant into.|
These boxes are made very much like my compost bins. But they don't have a side that is removable. And they are only half as high. I find the height to be very ergonomic. Just right for an old buggah like me.
