    Bravo! What a beautiful and edible transformation that you, your neighbors and passers-by can enjoy. Oh, and BEES too!

    Thank you for such an informative DIY project. If I don't settle into a flat in my future uprooting and relocating, I will most certainly try to give this a go! Double points for bee-love. :>

    Nicely done! – however, caution against using reclaimed barn wood for edible gardens as it often includes lead paint.

    I'm wondering if or how you would deal with cat or dog poop? I grew veggies in my flower beds last year and couldn't keep the cats out of it and now I've found that the neighbor dogs have been using it as a bathroom all winter
