I feel pretty inadequate as the only food in my yard is fresh herbs! :-)

My Great Grandmother had a huge garden; with six kids to feed it was a necessity. She grew everything and canned it all. She owned a ton of property in the North end from the 1920's to the 1960's, most of it was used for growing vegetables. By today's standards she would have been considered an Urban Farmer. She also kept a large garden when she moved to the mountain in the late 60's. By then all her grown children were also huge vegetable gardeners, providing for their families. As a child I remember helping my Grandparents with their vast garden. It was big enough that we didn't have to have one, we just went to their house on weekends to pick up green beans, peppers, tomatoes, zuchini and lettuce.
