How about flipping the broccoli and the strawberries? Berries like beans and peas.

Broccoli likes the onion family. So maybe exchange the peppers and the broccoli? Or put the carrots with the hibiscus and melons (carrots love being with lettuce), and put the broccoli with all the onions/leaks/garlic/shallots.

Because N is on the right side, you may want to put the strawberry box in the far north position.

JMHO...

I thought of something else...the onions, garlics, shallots, and leeks (sort of) fit a lot to a square. Garlics and onions are bulbs, and take little room. Are you sure you want all those squares dedicated to them?

My tip: Compare prices of purchasing bulbs versus buying them in a store and planting those. I bought shallot bulbs, and they were in terrible shape, and expensive! I couldn't see them through the packaging. Many were dried up...if they grow I'll be very surprised. The garlic bulbs were only a little better. I planted one clove (point up!) from the kitchen that was already developing a stem (typical for late winter & spring). It's doing fantastic! Of the bulbs I planted a few are coming up... 1/3 of what I planted. Garlic has been on sale at the grocery lately and I kick myself for not buying it there!
