Lie, asparagus is a luxury crop...expensive to buy in the shops so worth growing.
you are right to dismiss carrots if you feel you cannot grow them.
Runner beans grown over a wigwam, dwarf french beans, peas for a delicious treat, lettuce will not take up much space, a few beetroot too, a small patch of parsley, chives and a pot of mint would be my advice.
good luck Lie. Enjoy your veg plot
