For me, radishes are the easiest and fastest. I think it's because they are small and don't need much depth. I have them in a 6" bed. My beets get to full size in a 12" bed after 100 days or so, even though the seed package says 70. No luck with carrots or parsnips. I don't think the 12" bed is deep enough.
You might try a different variety of tomato. The bigger the tomato, the more problems I have. The cherry and grape tomatoes have the least amount of trouble. The big varieties like beefsteak draw pests and disease, and get sun scald, and they crack from over watering.
