I was thinking of putting a wider board between where they meet to walk on top of it.

Why even have joist's in the middle pull them out. Lay them down there's your walking planks.

I think that I started a few varieties too early. My zucchini and tomatoes are going to have to be repotted into larger containers soon.  I’m still learning

Zucchinis are going to need to be repotted a few times. I don't start my zuks and cuks until 4.5 weeks before wthe last frost and they still need to be repotted once in that time frame. Tomatoes will probably  need to be repotted twice, but you will have a huge plant by the time you put it out.

I am building raised beds this year; four of them.  Got some pine cut at a lumber mill recommended by @LPJR.  Picked it up on Friday.  I had to finish it into 8' lengths, and did that today.  Assembled two of the four beds before I ran out of sunlight.

I'll be assembling the other two beds later this week.  I had one tomato seedling sprout so far.  Spring is here and the work begins!

We put chicken wire under our raised beds to keep the rabbits and ground hogs from digging underneath...Looks goo though!!
