Vegetables to Plant Per Person Cheat Sheet

This gardening cheat sheet for you that lists how many of each vegetable you should plant per person. For example, broccoli is 1 per person so if you have a family of four you will most likely need to plant 4 broccoli plants. These numbers are just averages so you might want to plant more if you are planning on canning tomatoes, making pickles from cucumbers, making basil pesto or you just really love a certain vegetable!

These numbers do not take into account succession plantings, so if you want enough carrots to feed your family throughout the year you should plant the indicated number whenever you do a planting.
