Step 22: Hay Bale Swimming Pool

Seen on Atlantic Avenue, Alameda CA.
There are probably stakes driven down through the bales into the ground to keep the water pressure from pushing the bales outward.

There are large staples holding the plastic on around the edge and sandbags holding it down inside and around the edge.

That is clever! I live in Iowa, USA, and that is the perfect hillbilly/redneck gift!

it looks like one of the setups Paul Stamets of Fungi Perfecti did to convert spilled oil into mushroom food.
Be sure to use a heavy enough plastic so that the straw doesn't end up poking right through it, straw's a lot stiffer and sharper than most people think.
