looking good...i tell ye..id get stuck in with the rake and fork quick..turn a little soil..and then start sowing direct to the ground asap..you'll have a crop in no time. you can always make the beds next year..save yourself some money too. go down to easons and buy Michael Brenocks book (THE IRISH GARDENERS HANDBOOK)...it's a must have. it tells you how and when to do everything!

I would suggest filling the raised beds up to the brim to get the maximum benefit from the 'raised' effect.
