I think I saw your pics of bags and kiddie pool gardening. Do you use potting soil or garden soil? I assume you drill holes in the bottom of the pool for drainage. My driveway is the sunniest area I have, and I have quite a few pots. But now I may try your kiddie pool suggestion. I enjoy trying different projects like this. I still need to transform a pallet into a planter for my daughter too.
I have both kinds of kiddie pools. I have strawberries in a pool that I just used a knife to poke and twist hole in. I put rabbit bedding in first then miracle grow moisture control potting soil. And another kddie pool with Walmart bags filled with potting soil and sitting in a pool with 3" of water in it. I also have a raised bed and pots. I would love to add another pool. I think my plants are doing great so far. Squash and egg plant, cucs and cantaloup are all blooming.
I saw my first wasp yesterday, but it looked like it was flying drink. All my plants that I dusted are covered in netting. So I don't know what was wrong with it.
Our raised bed is made from pallets we had left over from making the chicken coop.
