Garden Party - part II

You may remember from my previous posting that we decided to start a garden this year for our porch. We recycled M and D's pool from last summer, which had been rendered useless for swimming again this summer. We drilled several drainage holes into the side of the pool, about 2 inches from the ground, to allow it to drain properly when it rains. We also planted a few things in some old buckets, which also have the drainage holes in the side. Then, we added dirt from the barn, as well as some compost that we started 2 years ago. The plants seem to be thriving and though the garden is small, I think it will provide a lot of extra veggies for us to feast on this summer. Yummy!
