Community garden plot all planted up for the summer


I am extremely excited to have taken procession of a plot in a community garden. I got my poor hubby to dig it over and we've prepared it with compost, horse manure and mulch, and are all ready to go with growing stuff.

We've planted:
  • tomato plants grown from seeds and 2 tomato plants that we've bought from a nursery;
  •  2 cucumbers;
  • 2 chilli plants we've bought, and 1 plant I've grown from seed;
  • 2 egg plants;
  • 2 melons;
  • 2 capsicums; and
  • a lavender bush to attract bees.
The plot gets a lot of sun so will need lots of watering in the summer months. But we're noticing that we have a lot of worms in the soil which is a good thing, and the chilies and capsicums are already thriving.

Do you have any tips on how to maintain a small, raised garden bed?
