Are you familiar with the practice of putting woody debris in the bottom? It helps cut down on the amount of soil you need, and it also helps the bed retain moisture.

and it was a good thing you did....I should do something like that.
@Kenny Chaffin Even with just a 1:1 mixture of compost:manure, most things did pretty well. Unfortunately we underestimated the affinity for a squash plant we started from a store-bought squash seed for the bed, it ended up dominating everything else:
