I'm new to this site and posted this earlier under the wrong forum. Oops!

I moved into a house last summer which was previously occupied by a gardener. The good news is that she left us four nice-sized raised beds. The bad news is that she evidently scavenged the boards to make the beds, and they are painted, inside and out. I don't like the idea of raising food in these beds where there is paint peeling off the inside of the boards. What ideas do you have on what I should do? Move the soil and line the inside of the boards with something? (If so, what?) Remove the boards and put something else around the soil to hold it in place? Something else entirely?

Thanks for your help!
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
