What are the pros? Ease of maintenance

What are the cons? Needs netting


I planted this 3/28 in a 5' diameter kiddie pool with one small hole (1/2") drilled. I filled the pool with professional topsoil and kept it mostly wet though I never plugged the hole. It would turn lighter green occasionally and I would put miracle grow on it, it would then turn darker green. I did that maybe 4 times. The heads appeared 7/30 and now at 9/1 they are mostly turning from green to brown and should be ready to harvest within a week. When the heads started to appear I put up bird netting just in case but I have not seen birds going after my small batch. Next year I'm planning a 5x25' patch.
