Ok, I’ll bite…what’s with the 6th? Is that a superstition or family tradition or something?

Wow! That's a great fit for gardening! I was so inspired that began to search for other pallets ideas and also found something interesting: https://morningchores.com/pallet-garden/ .
When I was a student, we had a coffee shop with chairs made from pallets, but your thing, Joernolav, is 100 times cooler :D
