Last year I grew some veggies in kiddie pools with some success.  These are pics from 08.  This year I am doing it again so check back for pics.

Thanks :)

It's much easier than trying to either plow the ground or build a raised bed. This year I am expanding to flowers and veggies/herb and will try some inflatable pools. My only concern is the exterior, as these pools are brightly colored and have designs like dolphins on them. I got some plastic spray paint to try and hide the outside of the pools but haven't gotten around to that yet.

Glad to see this pool idea worked for someone other than me!
