Age-Old Wisdom meets Modern Tools
Traditional Backyard Garden Plot Plan
Greg grew most of his family’s food for the year in his backyard garden, building raised beds out of pallets and old shingles. Here is his garden layout plus some beautiful garden photos!
Greg Morse from Bagley, Minnesota created a large 34’ 11” x 34’ 11” backyard garden using both traditional rows and raised beds made out of pallets. His garden also included mobile pallet planters as well as drip irrigation, row covers, and a hoop house. As you can see from the photos Greg submitted, it’s been a very productive garden! He’s be happy to hear from other northern gardeners.
Greg’s Vegetable Plot Plan
“Raised beds made out of shingle pallets cut in half, height 20”. Rows and square foot gardening incorporated all together. Lots of plasticulture used to extend cold, short northern growing season.”
