Vegetable plants will need a 12 inch depth of soil and it should be amended with compost or other organic matter to encourage healthy root growth. Choose a sunny site - one with at least 8 hours of direct sunshine each day. Then plant the vegetables you and your family love to eat. Each seed packet or plant should list the mature size of the plant and you can use this information to help you properly space your plants so they will not be overcrowded as they begin to produce veggies. Plant the tallest growing vegetable plants in the back of the bed so they won't shade out the plants of smaller stature. A bed that's about 4' deep will be easiest to manage. You'll be able to reach across the bed to weed and harvest your veggies. You can make it as long as you have room for. Hope this information helps get you started!
