In only a 12' diameter space I'd have to agree with dward, that an herb spiral would be the way to go! You could always add in some veggies too - bush beans/peas for N-fixation upslope of a heavy N feeder like broccoli, greens, or squash, with tomato or cukes hanging over the edge in the appropriate sun sector....
So many options. Do have fun with it, and post pictures!
The best fertilizer is the gardener's shadow.

Moved here from MA. It's very very very different here, and very lovely in
its own way.
I definitely want to grow herbs, so I'll check out the concept of herb
No good place inside to grow sprouts. I've got some cilantro growing in the
window and it's very leggy.
But, we have a very long growing season down here so I'm sure I can do some
sprouting on the porch.
Thanks for the idea.
