We grow what we eat regularly and we grow it in as large of quantities as the garden space allows for. I found this helpful in case something flops, you have a large enough # of plants that all the hard work isn't in vain and you get something even if it is a small amount. I average 5-8 basil plants a season and my husband makes pesto that we freeze...it lasts us until the basil goes into the ground the next year. Canning is great too and helpful for bumper crops.

I also try to grow something new and different. Part because I want to figure out what works well in our garden beds and part to try and have as much and variety in our summer diets. We try our best to eat strictly from the garden once the plants start producing.
