DIY planter for tiny kitchen garden

My wife asked me to build two wooden boxes and a planter for her vegetables and herbs. She has become serious about having her own tiny kitchen garden. So I bought some cheap 14 cm wide and 15 mm thick pinewood. I cut the wood at the desired length and connected it with 4 x 40 mm chipboard screws. The inside of the boxes were covered with anti-root fabric. The planter was made of the same wood as the boxes. I got the idea of the planter on the YouTube channel of Steve Ramsey at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8-IlmLA27g. I simplified his version since I only needed two tiers instead of three. It's easy to build, cheap and transportable. Now I just have to wait until these delicious radish are finding there way to my plate.

A more recent image of the kitchen garden. The vegetables are all doing well (we've already eaten the radish).
