yimmy, it sounds as if you have done a lot of conditioning for the soil; I assume that the farm yard manure was rotted down i.e. from a garden centre? not fresh from the farm yard? A photo would help if you can upload one (press the tree icon) I would imagine that it would be fine for planting now.

I use mesh, but also attach shiny silver plastic ribbon to it to make sure the birds can see that there is a barrier; I would not like to have to disentangle a pigeon from the mesh I also use slug pellets, as snails and slugs can do an awful lot of damage to young plants at this time of the year.
