Here is a nice deal on a small raised garden kit from Home Depot. You can pick up this 42 x 42 kit for $28 today.
This would be a perfect starter garden- especially if you want the children involved. This looks like a really manageable size and you can have several fruits or veggies inside.
The shipping is free on a $45 order or you can pick up in store after ordering online for free.
Looks like these will be ready next week- so time this weekend to clear your space and get the soil and plants and such.
