I don't know how much room you have, but you really should have at least 2 beds if you plan on planting the same crops every year because you need to rotate your veg patch. You can't plant the same thing year after year in the same bed - too much pest build up. Or then whatever you plant this year you don't plant next year.
You need to look up companion planting and plant accordingly. Different plants need different soil conditions - brassicas and alliums like a more alkaline or limed soil, for instance.
So this year do a tomato, basil, pepper etc (as I suggested below) and next year do the brassicas and alliums or then seriously think about adding another raised bed to your collection. I started with 3 and now have 8. Yup... it's addictive!
