Step 1: Don't get mired down in details (like spending the entire summer planning the perfect garden layout, or concocting the perfect raised bed container, or building defenses against all possible intruders such as deer, raccoons, birds, slugs, and neighborhood kids). Just dig up the sod, flip it over, and stack.
Step 2: Fill the beds with potting soil and plants.
Step 3: Cut and enjoy!
Now all that's left to do is rinse, and repeat!
