Really need to define what "every Vegetable needed year round for a family of 4 means." Are we really talking every bit of vegetable product a family of 4 eats in a year, if that is what you think then think again (No way this system can possibly provide 100% of plant derived calories for even one person let alone a family of 4, you would need acres to provide enough grain, beans and root crops to provide a family of 4 100% of their diet.) This might provide year round fresh veggies and salad for a family of 4 if they eat a rather average diet and live in a region or provide an environment where they can really grow those crops all year round.

Very good article. It is much easier to adapt to the changing environment using permaculture rather than being dependent on chemicals.
