You should be able to feed a family of three from a vegetable garden planted in about 525 feet. If you don't have that much space, you can grow some veggie vertically and you can interplant or practice successive planting - once you harvest one veggie, you can immediately plant another type of veggie. With proper preparation and maintenance, you'll have plenty of vegetables to harvest. If you'd like more information, here's a website you can visit and download a publication from Washington State University to help you with your planning:

Best wishes with your vegetable garden!
