He's looking for "guerilla gardening" tips mate, I dont think raised beds will go unnoticed.Don't listen to him.
Here's what you do ...
Check first that you have full sun on a patch of ground at least 8-10 hours a day in Spring, Summer and early Fall.
Build raised beds in that area. Use landscape timbers (X4 timbers high) or 2" X 10" 's or 2" X 12" 's (untreated; the exterior treated timbers will leach toxins into the soil and the plants that you eat), place on edge in 4' X 8' or 5' X 10' rectangles. Screw together. (Check elsewhere in the gardening section here to see examples of this.) beds of this dimension allow you to pack a lot in a small area but it is easy to reach across for most people. You can also build squares four or five feet square if the other sizes are too big.
Place weed blocking landscape fabric on the entire bottom of the bed. This prevents weeds and grass sprouting up.
Fill those beds with a good mix natural ingredients to compensate for all of the acidic soil that your pine trees love but veggies don't.
Peat moss, top soil (from nursery - not potting soil - too expensive), compost (many municipalities give to away by the truck load) and manure. My favorite retail product is "Black Cow", but check Craigslist in your area. People often give away horse and cow manure from their barns, so you can save money that way.
Plant and watch things grow.
After the plants are a few inches high, place mulch around them to reduce weeds. I use cedar mulch because the natural cedar oils repel bugs which can eat your plants. Cedar (which is shredded rather than in cubes like pine bark mulch) won't float away in a heavy rain storm.
Check elsewhere i this gardening section for much advice on growing food crops.
Good luck to you!
