Got my little raised bed postage stamp in

OK! Finally had a good day to put my raised bed in. It's not much, I dug out the area for it, lots of gravelly dirt, but everything seems to grow great in that area. I laid down some landscaping cloth and used those connect together solid flower bed borders to make the walls, then went to the garden center, got 6 bags of dirt, smoothed it out, and transplanted the jalepeno and ring of fire seedlings, plus two little tomato seedlings that I want to see if they will make it. I direct planted the blue lake bush beans, and hopefully, this will all turn out great!

Sounds great David - well done! My seeds planted last Sunday are showing signs of life but the raised bed project (using cinder blocks) has come to a standstill as there is no cement on the whole island and the next shipment is not due until 15 April, - by which time your plants will be flourishing!  Going small is no bad thing - at least you get to see some progress quickly! All the best.
