As I am trying to expand my garden this year, I have come across some creative ways to start a garden using kiddie pools. Yes, kiddie pools; and honestly, if I would have known this, I probably would have extended my garden last year.
The truth is that with baby number 4 arriving late in spring, I have decided that I needed to expand my garden to grow more vegetables and herbs. I have decided that I really needed to utilize what limited space my small yard provides.
