How large should my garden plot be?


The size of your garden plot depends on the amount of plants and the type of plants you plan to grow. Research the vegetables you want in your garden and the space they need to grow. A 20 ft. x 25 ft. (500 sq ft) area can provide a variety of vegetables to feed a family or four.
