I rarely (if never) repost an idea from someone else, but this is such a fantastic idea that I really felt that I should.
We are getting to that time of year where we need to start planting and potting all of the foods that we want to incorporate into our recipes and this is a great way to recycle and make something really quite pretty.
From Pinterest.com I give you: Potted Pallets.
I see this on my porch PDQ along side my soon to be potted parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, chives, peas, lettuces, greens, blah-da-blahda-blah.
Let your kids, little and not so little, help in the planting process. This will give them a sense of ownership of the project and will almost guarantee that they will eat and enjoy the fruits of their labor. And what could be better that fresh picked strawberries out of their own strawberry pot with their morning yogurt?
