To me, it would depend on whether your entire garden area is made up of raised beds, or if you have just a few. If all is made up of raised beds, plant whatever you and your family likes the best.

If you have only a few beds, then use the space to it's maximum capacity by planting things sequentially to get the most produce in the smallest space. Small plants, spinach, lettuce, radishes, other salad things, can be interplanted. The raised beds make weeding much easier and can also keep the plants' leaves cleaner by lessening mud splashing during heavy rains.

In reality, you should plant your favorites, keeping to the more compact plants to maximize yields.

I have 3 raised gardens the ground where i live is more rock than dirt.Last year I planted corn in one and tomatoes and green beans and Brussels sprouts in another and third melons and cucumbers and in some containers planted some other veggies.I had beautiful heads of cabbage just by putting each plant in its own pot.
