Can I safely plant vegetables in a small plastic swimming pool converted to a raised bed? Will plastic contaminate the food?

    This is a very difficult question to answer.  The plastic from the swimming pool will almost assuredly leech BPA and other endocrine disruptors into the soil planted.  However, there has been research to show that certain plants have the ability to metabolize the harmful chemicals that come from plastics.  I personally would not take the chance as we are already exposed to enough of these chemicals in our daily lives.  However, this one is your call.
