Yes I'm very new to this laid about 960 lbs of manure down. In my 30 ft by 30 ft garden tilled it twice. Just seems like some is still hanging out on the top will this hurt my plants? Should I try to keep working it in the soil?

As long as it is well composted stuff it will not hurt your plants to have some on the surface. In fact, compost can be used as a mulch or side-dressing to feed plants and keep weeds down during the growing season.
