I would personally use 12" grid and leave that last grid at 9" Otherwise you won't have the proper spacing without doing mental gymnastics every time. I would also put the 9" on the side where you might be more likely to plant larger plants if that's a consideration.

My original bed is 30 inches x 26 feet. I used a 12" x 12" grid and in the front 6" I planted marigolds. The bees loved the marigolds, and they are excellent pollinators. Also the flowers decorated the garden. But don't believe anything about marigolds repelling rabbits -- I have seen rabbits eat marigolds several years ago!!

I have quite a few boxes that are not square and I use string for boxes. I just plant flowers or small veggies like radishes in the small "squares". Same with the larger squares I just plant bigger veggies in there! It won't make a big difference and you will get used to it however you set it up! Sometimes we just gotta make due with what we have! Have fun and happy planting!
