Back from hiatus - ready to plant!

I've been intentionally 'off-grid' lately - that makes it hard on the blog thing but one must unplug periodically.
We have a nice little backyard that is currently empty - I've been demo-ing what was there since it was time to clean it all out. There is a huge oak tree next door that shades part of the space but most of it does get sun either in the morning or in the afternoon.
I want to plant a weaver's garden (plus tomatoes) thus I'm in the process of identifying what I could plant in this environment.
Any ideas, suggestions, warnings?
Many types of bamboo are very useful for various things but they tend to take over and crowd out other plants. Flax?! Hmmm...
