You can grow just about any type of vegetable in a raised bed that is 10 inches deep. Usually the most common types of vegetables will be plants that dont have runners. Growing root vegetables like onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, turnips, and foliage plants like lettuce, spinach, swiss chard all do well. Plants that want to climb can be grown in a raised bed but you will need to have a stake or trellis system to tie them up like beans, peas, and indeterminate tomato varieties. Growing summer squash will also work fine since they dont have runners.
