Help push me in a direction
We live in southern ok near Ardmore. Having built a house last summer I wanted to do some things so that the kids and myself could have fun plating and eating our spoils. So many questions I end up not doing anything. Our yard slopes and I have a bit of hippy in me since i grew up in upstate ny so I'm steering towards a raised beds. I have an are cleared at the bottom of the back yard that I am aiming for I will add pictures once I figure that part out. I grew up with my great grandparents living in the downstairs of our home and my great grandad was a super gardener. I have so many memories of helping him. From planting to eating to dusting to trying to dig for night crawlers in his compost pile of 50 years.
Now what to do. My boys one night and one day respond diff to food. One age 9 would eat pizza 3 times a day seven days a week the other age 6 Would eat carrots apples peas broccoli oranges banana potatoes celery and raw veggies instead of even looking at a candy bar. He would eat catalope for every meal. I know great problem to have.
I want the boys to have a good memory or two or maybe I'm trying to go back in my own head. Or maybe I'm just ADD and need another hobby to dive in head first and watch my wife shake her head at me.
I want to do something to get going or I will do nothing but read catalogs from burpee or books on heirloom seeds and read about to great big eveil monsoto and fast food nations and surf till I'm blue.
I want to go build a raised bed. What size. Do I do multiple 4x8 to I do 4x16 I just need to start. I can tear down later and rebuild if necc.
What to plant and when and how to make the bed or beds to accommodate.
Here's what we like

I want to get off my but and build a bed but I want to follow through and not get in over my head
Help push me into the next area of adult ADD and help me create a new OCD.
