Raised beds, dirt, water logged!
I've never had any luck with raised beds. In this case, it was only a slightly raised bed, 2-3 inches of top soil and compost mixed near the house. 100 ft of it. Just got it in, day after, 3.5" of rain, and, I have *never* seen such a water logged soil. It was literally like soup. The clay, no problem, water drained away. This stuff, problem, the water mostly stayed in it. No way I could grow anything.
So, as a guess, what could be wrong? Wrong soil type (not sure of the type of top soil)? Putting this on top of clay? Other potential errors?
