It depends a lot on the zone. Here in frigid MI solanaceae do not produce much before getting killed. A couple square feet of garlic, I am afraid, is a dozen bulbs. I grow 300 for three families, and they all get eaten… plusses about herbs are that you get a lot of rare phytochemicals, and they are perennial. You can't beat that return on labor!

Herb garden might be the easy answer. What are the most nutrient dense foods you could grow? Greens come to mind, you can get quite a bit of lettuce in that space, it grows quick, grows when it's cool (spring, fall). Garlic doesn't take much room, a couple square feet of garlic will keep you set for a while. Peppers, hot or sweetl Lots of colors (phytonutrients!) and vitamin C.

without a doubt herbs. It is too small to do anything else, and 2sqm, properly tended, will satisfy all your herb needs. I have maybe 5 times that, with oregano, mint, lemon balm, chives, sage, fennel, and some chamomile and nettles, but I start my days with mint/lemon balm tea so I use a lot (and do not harvest it every year). Which ag. zone are you?
