The history of that raised bed: Strawberries 2013, 2014. They pretty much died and were almost all weed by Summer 2015. Then bush beans for the summer 2015, then garlic last fall and winter. Now will be mostly brassicas for fall.

Cilantro, I saved the seeds - fall 2015
According to Washington State Extension Service, now is good time to plant bush beans, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, carrots, lettuce, mustard greens, radishes, rutabagas, swiss chard, and turnips. There are still more that can be planted later, to overwinter. According to Oregon State Extension Service, I can also start collards and Brussels sprouts.
Baker Creek seeds has a beautiful website, with suggestions for fall planting. I ordered some of the Chinese radishes, which look like they will be similar size to turnips and I am told have excellent flavor, to be used for cooking instead of just radishes for salads. I ordered seeds for " Chinese Red Meat Radish", Qingluobo radish, and "Misato Rose radish."
