A Vegetable Garden Journey Part 2

We finally got around to working on our raised beds again--and got the cooperation of the weather.  It was a fabulous weekend and if we hadn't run around so much we might have gotten more done.  As it stands, we have five boxes built, two to go, and a lot of leveling of the ground to match all the leveling we did on the boxes.  But we are well on our way to a lovely raised vegetable garden  Here are a few pictures (from each angle):

We are trying to come up with solutions to keep out the rabbits and deer.  I have thought about planting repellent plants but am not sure how well they work.  We have been told that you pretty much have to put a fence around your garden.  One neighbor said their cat keeps the bunnies away--we don't have a cat, but I have been pondering planting catnip to attract the neighbors cat to do the job.  

Do you have any suggestions?

I don't have any suggestions since we don't have a garden, but yours looks great. I hope to someday have a yard to be able to plant something in instead of just a little piece of concrete patio. The beds look good.
