Is it ok to grow my plants just adjacent to the wooden fence of my backyard garden? thanks.

They may need to be monitored to be sure they get enough water. Often the area very close to a fence or wall can be quite dry. I would suggest planting several inches out from the fence, and there should be no problem. Remember a fence may cast shade, so check if the area to be planted is in full sun, part sun, or mostly shade, and select plants accordingly.

If it is a chain link fence or a fence with sufficient gaps within it's main body, you should be fine. Just as the above comment mentions, you should leave sufficient space between the fence and the plants. this will not only ensure that the plants will get enough sunlight, but will also make sure that they do not interfere with each other, an plants root system is strong enough to damage a fences foundations, and plants tend to be very detrimental on wooden fences. Just take these things into consideration and you should be fine.
