While at Costco the other day a prefab raised bed talked me into bringing it home..since I have a horrible black thumb (hence the reason I use EB's) I need some serious help.

it's a 4x4 Lifetime 18" deep bed (link below)

I want to see if I can sneak in some radishes before it's time for melons as well as grow (along with the melons) some okra.

Ideas on everything and anything welcome..varieties of melons, soil type how to amend, how often to water..

lol the wrong thing! We used MG potting mix..BUT we are taking out tons and replacing it with some mulch to allow for better water retention and drainage.
