How many 4x4 boxes will two people need? We are thinking of adding more, we have four 4x4 boxes now, two for mixed veggies and two for stawberries. I am sure it's in the book, but I can't find mine right now. Thanks all

It's really up to you and what you want to grow. There are one and a half of me and we have 6 boxes so far, with plans for about 4 more this year. Just don't bite off more than you can chew. Start on the small(er) side. You can always add more.

Nancy makes a good point about taking on too much. But, this doesn't sound like your first year if you are adding more boxes. At least, that's not the feel I'm getting.
Were you short on produce last year? If so, where were you short? Salads, daily veggies, extras for freezing? That would help us help you.
Mel recommends, on page 42 when you get your book back, one full 4x4 per person for a salad a day. Another, per person, for daily veggies. And, another for preserving. He recommends 3x3's for individual kids.
You have 6 now. Another question to know would be...how many people are you trying to feed this season?
