A lot of this depends on how much gardening you feel like doing and how many vegetables you will be growing. For my family of two I started out with a 4' by 32' garden and that was great for a few years. I've since expanded and double the size of it but I grow a whole lot of things I can't use and end up giving away to co-workers and neighbors.

I've found that a garden of 100 to 250 square feet can be easily mantained by a single person and give you a lot of good vegetables.

I know a few people have really large gardens of over 1000 square feet but that starts to require a lot more maintenance and work than I have time to put into gardening.
