I will be back on Oahu in late May (currently in Texas student teaching) and Dh has built me a 5x12 raised garden bed that is 6" tall. I am really looking forward to starting my garden once I get back but I have no idea what to grow. The only things I have decided on are cucumbers, radishes, and I think I can arrange pumpkins so they actually grow over the side. I would like to grow carrots and potatoes but I don't think it's deep enough (I think I can grow potatoes in separate pots though) and I plan to grow tomatoes. I don't want this whole box to be filled with pumpkins, cucumbers, radishes, and tomatoes though.
So my question is: if you had limited space what would you plant? I am hoping I can convince him to build me another small 3x3 or 4x4 box to plant herbs in as well.
