Some good advice, Scorpio.  Especially important, is to read the book, either the 2nd or 3rd edition.  Good explanations and photos.

What I was thinking was to remove 3" of dirt.  Add 1" of fluffed peat moss and 2" of commercial compost.  Mix them in with 3" of remaining dirt to make 6" of modified of Mel's Mix.  Normally, Mel's Mix is made with coarse vermiculite, fluffed peat moss and a variety of different sources of compost.

Decent bagged composts include Ecoscraps Compost, G&B Purely Compost, Nature's Care Really Good Compost, Black Cow and Gardener's composted chicken manure.  There are others in different regions but these should be available in most areas.   https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t21089-recommended-store-bought-compost-photos-of-composts?highlight=compost

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I have a similar set up with a raised bed made of garden stone.  It also has bed area about 3 feet across.   I also have a bed of Nasturtiums next to the raised bed.    So the bad news.

Cucumbers trellising or pole beans trellising are somewhat problematic.  They grow fine but when you pick the fruits, it's very award.  I have relatively long arms however I'm still off balance and stretching to reach the fruit often standing on the raised block wall to do so and occasional feet then stepping into the bed.

The nasturtium, here in SoCal, I'm not sure if it's a aphid magnet or an aphid breeding ground.

Mel's two square rule is one I wished I hadn't broken.
