Sacrificed some of the wildflower mix for the new location. The europallets seem to have actually been a great idea, looking neat and rather cheap. Here it was all newly set up, with 4 squash plants / Wir opferten etwas vom Wildblumenbeet fuer den neuen Standort. Die Europaletten scheinen soweit eine gute Idee gewesen zu sein, schauen nicht schlecht aus fuer den Preis. Hier war es gerade frisch zusammengesetzt, und mit 4 Zuchinipflanzen bestueckt.

Karl used a white plastic corner profile in white and 8 small screws to hold the weed fleece in. Other than that the 3 pallet frames came mounted as seen and just stuck on each other. A bag of the special biological clean veggie soil for the top layer, twigs and compost of our own green waste below, and in the very end, here not yet shown, I decorated the rim with a 1cm stripe of single-sided conductive shield copper foil right below the profile to look not only more pretty but also keep slugs offf the outer wall. We spent less than 60 Euro for the whole construction with everything but the seeds and it was very easy to assemble. For once 4 squash plants proved to much for our personal use as they do carry fruit in there like mad. In the holey black vats I used before I just had troubles with milldewy leafs, nutition and propper moisture, 2-3 fruits from a plant and it was spent, now we got a pantry full of squash and more squash and still more of it growing outside....

I just told Ron the whole tale, read above. It is so impressive how they grew up and carry fruit in there!
