Being raised keeps the dogs out of it and it's easy to tend.

Just remember how much weight there will be in your damp soil. The bottom fell through on my version 1.0 and I'm about to patch it again a couple of years later. Looks like you've taken much better care of that in your design.

I've also recently added a shelf below which is handy for pots and also makes the table more sturdy.

But we put 2 levels one on the ground and another raised about 36" inches or so. It is not big but I have tomatoes, zucchini, squash, lettuce, several peppers and green beans with some basil to ward off the bugs. Got it started late but am harvesting lettuce.

It amazed me that we put some chicken wire on the back side on our creation intending to encourage the green beans to go UP. And I went out one day and they had found the wire on their own and were climbing. That wire is several inches from their base. HOW? Can they see? and how did they know what that wire was for? spooky.
