Get lumber, wood screws, power stapler, weed barrier, milk paint...check.
Build one in front.
Paint it to match the house trim. Twice.
Fill it with a LOT of soil and compost. Rake rake rake. Plant it with strawberries and flowers...leave room in the middle for bush beans, herbs, and beautiful bush pepper plants.
Then repeat the process...build another one in back. Add gifted raspberry canes, strawberries, marigolds and leave room for some herbs and purple tomatillo.
Insert pretty labels next to each plant for those walking their dogs past the house...answer many questions from the neighbors (yes, we are growing fruit and vegetables in there! ;)).
By adding two raised beds we have increased our planting area, and worked in some full sun areas! yay!
