I really stopped to think before putting our pool up today. I decided it is the most green option for us. After all we can...
1. Put up our pool and reuse the water all summer
Or
2. Crank up the a/c all summer
Or
3. Drive to the nasty lake where there are people I really don't want my kids around (driving isn't green)
Or
4. Join the public pool 5 miles away. Once again daily driving.
or
5. Play in the sprinkler daily (using who knows how much water)
or
6. Die from heat stroke in the ca heat!
So yeah, call me terrible but I went with option 1. I cant wait to use it!
But hey, we finished planting today. 15 tomato plants, 7 jallepeno plants (how do I preserve them for the rest of the year?), and more black beans went in today! We also have cantelope, bell peppers, zucchini, watermelon, and pumpkins :)

Hey, we live in central Florida, and I would have opt.ed for the pool to, it's not like your draining it every day, so tech. your not wasting water by any means.

We will be setting ours up in a couple of weeks! Yay pool! And yes- being in the pool helps keep us cool- and it's why I don't have to put window a/c units in my whole house- just the bedrooms. Not to mention, it makes the kids less crabby, me less crabby- totally worth it!!!

 Ooo....I wish I would have thought of black beans to plant.  Can I do them in a container? I love black beans.

I would think so.  They are vining so as long as they have something to grow up they should be pretty easy to grow :)
