Just make sure that your taller plants don't shade any sun loving lower plants. Tomatoes behind radishes, etc. Now how did I know this, oh yeah, nemind.... :D

On the other hand, if you protect lettuce with the shade from your tomato plants, you'll find that they'll grow better in the height of summer.
I reckon you could get 8 tomato plants, 8 pepper plants, a couple of cucumbers, two zucchini plants, lettuces around the toms and peppers, and have room for a small herb garden on either side.

To get the most out of that area, try to use up all the space. 3 feet apart and stuff in between. I try not to waste any space. Even things that aren't in the raised beds. Growing stuff gets addicting. (at least for me)
