I have very poor soil in my yard, and I was getting frustrated with the lousy crops I was getting trying to grow veggies in it. So, I decided to do something about it! I built some raised gardens, and in just a week the results are amazing.
I build three raised gardens using a mixture of potting soil and Miracle Grow plant mix. Then the brain matter kicked in and I incorporated bowling pins into my design.

The Used Pins you can find on eBay for $18.50 + shipping, the metal rack you can scrounge for, the wading pool you can get for a buck at a garage sale. The potting soil and Miracle Grow come from your local home improvement store.
Oh Yeah, you need seeds too!
IMPORTANT: Make sure you have punched enough holes in the bottom to allow for drainage.
Add 2-3 bags of potting soil to the pool. Level out with hoe and add a half bag of Miracle Grow. After you level this and compressed lightly, add a final bag of potting soil.
