You may remember a couple of years ago when I wrote about getting free pallets from the local Grange Co-Op, and growing our climbing roses up them.


And now.


We brought the pallets home and painted them the color of the fence, putting them side by side, making our own trellises. (We have 2 sets in the backyard, too!)

We’ve been enjoying the 2 different rose colors and the fullness of the flowers.

This is my first time to post about this side of the house, which greets you with beauty and color, as you enter through the side gate.

On the left, herbs are slow to grow this year. Lots of rain and not a lot of heat.

Over on the right, we already harvested our strawberries.

Do you ever look for “free” items when working on garden projects in your yard?
