Many of our friends built their own pool with an unforeseen multitude of problems, such as leaks, wall slides,… Continue reading A Swimming Pool In Your Garden?

Our garden is not that big and I do not have anything fancy there, but it is nice and green 🙂 And as we have little one I thought it might be fun to plant something! First idea – tomatoes!
