On the Ghetto Garden Expansion

It's been raining the last few days, but before it started in earnest, I was able to build and fill this:

I topped this store-bought version off. If you look real close, you can see some of the stuff I already planted. (Ignore the junk and overgrown, soon-to-be-herbicided grass.)
Then I built, but did not fill, this guy.
All told, the ghetto garden has expanded by five new raised beds this year, some 90 square feet of growing space.

The bonus? These rains proved my regrading project a success. The area where the walk meets the patio didn't get swamped at all.
