Need some inspiration

I have cleaned out my beds and need to plan my garden. I know its late but I have a 5 week old baby girl that has kept me busy up to this point.

I have 76 sft to plant between 3 beds. Other than tomatoes, I am at a loss of what I want to plant. Any of you guys have links to your garden layouts that can give me some inspiration?

I don't have any links but the easiest thing to do is plant what you eat. If you detest green beans forget those but if you adore greens, plant oodles. To make things easier, see what plants are available in your area that you can just put in the ground. Some beneficial flowers would be a good addition, like marigolds or nasturtiums so you can eat em too.

Most importantly, enjoy that baby because a few years from now she will be pulling plants and knocking over Wall-O-Waters. Congratulations!

I don't have any pictures to show you, but if you go to the gardeners supply website they have a "create your own" square foot garden plot and it will email you how to grow each veggie that you plant. I found that very helpful because I could mix and match or whatever very easily. Then just saved it to the site as well as had it emailed.

Why not plant theme gardens? salsa gardens, italian gardens, garden...
