Manure is essential due to the soil being very acidic and always remember plenty of water in the morning and in late evening when the sun is less prominent in the sky. Potatoes, peppers, chilli peppers, mint and a whole range of plants can be grown in pots, not just in the garden so experiment! Many of the herbs available in Spain require little attention other than water and add that little corner of greenery that is always welcome in any garden or patio.
Parsley - Old English or broad leaf (welcome in any fish dish) grows like mad and can be dried for use throughout the year.
Rosemary, strong smell and will flourish in any garden (requires less water) great with Catalan sausages or over a leg of lamb in the wood burner with roast potatoes, carrots and turnip
