    It’s fine if you like food contaminated with chlorinated copper aresenate. Cedar or Redwood would be ideal choices. Even plain Douglas Fir would last for several years, even longer if treated with Linseed oil which is derived from flax seeds and non-toxic. Personally I would use straw bales instead of wood. Stand bales so twine is on the outside. Thoroughly pre-soak bales with lots of water and organic fertilizer. Dig holes in tops and fill with good soil, plant upright herbs, Basil, Sage etc. in these. Holes in sides for creeping herbs, Thyme varieties, and strawberries. As bales begin to break down toss in a few earthworms. In two years you’ll have excellent compost and can start again.

I don’t understand why this allows for increasing the number of plants. This doesn’t increase the surface area, so wouldn’t I be able to plant just as many strawberry plants (in this example) on a flat surface with the same area?
