My daughters begged to put in a garden this year and it's been a fun, family experience. My family had good sized gardens at our home in Ohio, but my Grandparents obviously had a HUGE garden on the farm in PA.

So, we have 2 varieties of tomatoes (4 plants total), a red and a yellow pepper, banana pepper, mild jalepeno pepper, cilantro, beets, okra, carrots, broccoli and onions. It's probably too much in that little, 4x8ft space, but the girls were excited and have been checking it non-stop.
