Square foot raised garden outdoors

Hi everyone,

I've just built and started my first square foot garden. Here it is:

I live in zone 7a, Virginia.

My game plan is to plant onions, arugula, rosemary and lettuce now (that's already done). I've left room for strawberry plants in mid-April and then tomatoes and hot peppers will go in in May. Does that sound workable?

I'm a bit unsure about the rosemary. I've heard it grows very large. Will it be possible to contain it (mostly) to 1foot across with a lot of pruning?

What about strawberries planted right in the raised bed? Will they need a support of some kind?

Hope you all have some good advice. I am new to gardening.
