Mom Thinks She Has A Green Thumb

During my period of neglect these past couple of weeks, my mom has scoured the internet looking fur things to waste her time on do, here are the beginnings of a pallet garden…


Her, dad and the youngest son almost killed each other laying pallets on top of one another…trying to achieve the perfect look.  I don’t see what the big deal is, just start putting them together in a line….geeze.   Any dog could tell them that!

Then dad started nailing burlap potato and coffee bags to the pallets.


Of course, I was there snoopervising the whole process!


This makes a great trampoline!!  BOL!!


Did I just get yelled at for making sure the burlap bags are tight??  Surly not!

Then they put another layer of pallets on…my guess, they are losing their minds!

But again, my job is to snoopervise, not judge!


Looks good to me!!!


Then mom started adding dirt to the pallets!  She said she will start adding some vegetables soon!  I guess that will mean more internet research….grrrr, so my neglect will continue I am guessing!  Oh well, as long as she grows me something yummy to eat!!


  1. I have to admit that is a very cool idea.Make sure she plants you some strawberries. yumm yumm

  2. I must say that I am interested in hearing about this. Looks like a great idea. Keep reporting on it, Higgins. Hopefully your mom's priorities won't get mixed up. You're still #1.

  3. Wow thats a nice DIY project your Mom's working on.
    Can't wait to see all the yummy vegetables soon.

  4. But imagine all the lovely things you get to eat Higgins. That has to be the upside. Have a terrific Tuesday.

  5. Hummmmmm that will make a super raised garden. Never seen one like that before. WE just dig in the Ground and then dad sticks plants in the holes.

  6. Wow, cool idea. Maybe you will get some of the yummy vegs?

  7. That's neat! Plant carrots....I loves me some carrots!

  8. When moms get bored, lookout!!

  9. Yes, and then you can sample all the veggies while they are still growing. The peeps love that!!

  10. What a great idea! I'm going to have to mention this to hubby, I see a project in his future. :-)

  11. Higgins, that pallet garden looks like it could seriously impact the amount of time your mom has to spend with you. You'd better monitor this situation very closely!
