I worked pretty hard because after today I won't be able to do any heaving lifting for a few weeks - spinal fusion at C6/7 etc.
Just before the weekend I received a box of plants from the Diggers Club, comprising: 2 x Natal Plum, Acerola Cherry, Stevia (sugar plant) a sugar replacement, Yacon, Comfrey, Dwarf Apple Tropical Beauty and some seeds. All edible, and the plum, cherry & apple specifically suited to our climate in Brisbane.
I got all the others planted at all (no heavy digging soon remember).
I also constructed the second raised bed. After leveling the site (just where the edges would sit, not the whole area) it took 5 minutes at most to put together with the help of SMD. Thanks to all that preliminary work I did last week.
Then I had to put the protective edge (split irrigation pipe) along the top. It was so much easier this time with a brand new hooked blade in a proper Stanley Knife! However, care is recommended.

Hope you had a happy Easter!
