Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's interesting to think about how much of a family's annual food supply could be grown on a typical suburban lot. Typically in the U.S. they're around 1/4 acre, 836 square meters, with maybe a 2500 square foot, two story house, which would cover around 116 square meters, so maybe there's around 600 square meters after accounting for driveways and stuff.

That's around 0.06 hectare (oh, wonderful metric system!). What would you grow? Potatoes, I suppose, and beans of some sort...
