Taking over a new plot - plot 38

As previously reported, I took over the adjacent plot to my original plot two weeks ago, and have been dedicating my time to getting this plot up to scratch so I can plant it up asap.
We have dug out existing soft fruit trees that are either in the wrong place or don't seem to be producing much, and have marked out a total of 10 beds, including three which have been partially cultivated, so can be extended and dug over fairly easily. The other beds will mainly be produced using the lasagne bed method.
To date, we have created three lasagne beds and three dug beds. Two of the lasagne beds will be dedicated to cut flowers for the pollinators - which has worked so well on plot 39. Two of the dug beds will be planted with potatoes, with the remaining dug bed being planted up with half rhubarb and half blueberries.
The other beds will be used for squashes, sweetcorn and other rotation crops.
Here is the plan at the moment and progress:
