How does my garden grow?

Getting a very belated start on planting my garden. Raised beds, zone 8, vegetables. What seeds can I plant this late, and what kinds of starts should I get?

Novice gardener here. I've only planted a vegetable garden once before, so I'm not very familiar with timing and what's good in my area. I live in the hills between Portland, OR and the Coast Range, the planting zone zipcode finder says 8A but I might be more like 8B at my elevation.
Assume we like all kinds of fruits, vegetables, and herbs. We will have 2 raised garden beds, 4' x 8', plus another raised bed for herbs, 5' x 5'. What vegetable starts should we get, and what should we grow from seeds?
