My partner and I made a raised bed out of an old bookshelf and it worked great. We also used a small kid's pool to plant the big stuff.
The rest we planted in rubbermaid containers, an old plastic sink, and some large plant containers (some people use garbage cans for things like potatoes because you can plant so much and save a huge amount of space). We drilled holes in the bottom of them and we were good to go.
The advantage to planting in containers is that if you have a plant that you need to treat for disease you can move it away from the others which was a plant saver for us in 2010.
Finally, if you find that some of your plants need more sun then you can move them if you need to (which helped us last year due to this crazy WA state weather). My partner is disabled and I will be busy student teaching through June so we are putting the plants that need extra care in a pool on top of a table so she can get to it easier.
Just some ideas I shared on another topic and thought I would write it again under a specific topic. Thanks!
