Been there, done that... learned to downsize. Wound up with more leftovers than the chest freezer, friends, family, and work could consume. Once you fill your first bathtub with tomatoes and make a few dozen jars of sauce you may scale back too... then again, our growing season may be longer than yours. Even in North Georgia, tilling was by feb/March depending on water content, plants in the ground by or before early April, killing freeze around Thanksgiving.We are looking at about 150' by 125' (about a half acre) for the garden this coming year. Size is about triple last year.
