We have about 1500 sq. ft. growing veggies this year. This will vary from year to year, depending upon what else we might want to use the ground for.
We have more space with potatoes this year, compared to most.

Our vegetable garden is around 750 Sq ft. The potatoes take up about 30% of it.

Man . . all that room..

I only have about 150 square feet for my veggies ( Tomatoes and herbs have their own spot)

2 rows of potatoes with a row of peas in between take up one third. One row of potatoes have been harvested and I've very recently planted some pak choi... don't know if they will grow quick enough to harvest.

The next third section is a row of leek, a row of carrots, and a row of Onions (red) most of the onions have already been harvested..

The last third is buttnernut squash and radishes, first crop of radishes harvested months ago ( I did let a few go to flower ) but I've recently planted more radishes. There is also a volunteer tomato plant growing amongst the sqaushes. I have no idea yet what kind of tomato plant it is.

Mine is 96 square feet (three raised beds) - and that is for veggies, herbs and some cutting flowers. The tomatoes and peppers are grown separately in pots. My whole backyard is only 1600 square feet! I wish I had more room, but a lot can be grown in a small space. I still get a great assortment of salad greens, onions, leeks, beets, a few beans and potatoes, swiss chard, carrots (if the dog doesn't eat them) and lots of herbs.

That is so true. Much garden space is usually wasted. I find the rows can be very close. Adequate plant spacing in a row is more important than anything when it comes to growing.

My veggie garden is 45' x 33' =1485 sq ft. The beds are raised to 2' high and I use the square foot gardening method with them. The fenced in area is 39' x27' and the outside 3'wide border is planted with currents, gooseberries, hawberries, Josta's, honeyberries ,blackberries, raspberries, rhubarb and the front lined with laramie strawberries. These are raised on 1' high.
