Maybe I did not give mine enough time. I had maybe 8 plants but was only getting enough for a meal for one person every two weeks. In the past I read that it would take 25 plants to give a regular crop for two people. If I can ever get hold of the vacant lot next door then that is something I can pursue but right now I only have 0.65 acres and am growing on maybe 1/3rd acre.
