Kiddie pool transforms into a garden. Let's plant herbs!

Here is a great little project for starting an herb garden which won't set you back too many dollars. Do you have a small kiddie pool you aren't using anymore? If not, you can pick up a small one for about $9 at WalMart.

Drill some holes in the bottom. Fill with good mixture of soil and/or compost.



Here we are...we're ready to get more planted but have started with oregano, German thyme, parsley, basil and a cherry tomato plant. I am hoping this cherry tomato plant is bushy so I won't need to stake it. Still need to plant a few more herbs in this pool.



It's been a slow and steady pace getting the raised beds prepared and obtaining a few plants, working with seeds. Hopefully I will be able to share photos showing a lush garden filled with tomatoes, beans, peppers and more. Stay with me for this new labor of love.

Look at that lone squash, sitting in a large box with room to grow. According to a raised bed gardening book we have been consulting, a yellow squash needs a big bed all to it's own as it will spread out.



See ya next time!

Hi Tina!
I love your kiddie pool herb garden! What a wonderful idea!

It looks like you are up and running for the season:) Not here I'm afraid, snow is in the forecast. {{sigh}}

At least I can look at your pictures and "dream" about getting outside, someday:) Thanks for sharing, Tina...

Thanks Louise! Sorry to hear you are still getting snow. We had an unexpected drop in temps last night, low down in the 30s so I hope the plants didn't suffer. Perhaps we jumped the gun on planting.

Eggplant Sliders...... almost

Interesting week, weather-wise.  On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
