Believe it or not, this freestanding vertical garden was crafted using a leftover wooden shipping pallet! To re-create on your own patio, wash your pallet with bleach and sand it down, then add a wood frame at the bottom to attach to the ground supports. Stain the wood and staple a fabric weed barrier between each shelf. Fill with soil and plant herbs or flowers./
Herbs in "frozen" olive oil is one of my favorite ways to harvest. The herbs don't get dry , brown and brittle in the same way they do when they get frozen in water. They also retain their scent and flavor much more effectively!
