    I tried to post in the old thread but I guess that it's locked out now.
    We bought these containers at Lowe's, after getting them set up they are self watering after you fill up the reservoirs.
    Frist time that we have been successful in years growing something besides weeds. The middle one is watermelon I'll move it to a place where the vines will have more room to grow. The containers have wheels.

    Nectaplums on top,my favorite.
    Cotton candy Apriums on bottom also very good. It’s been a great year for my fruit trees.

    Nice, I'm working on planting more succulents and cactus. I like the one in the bottom right corner. The white one.

    Check out Grisby Cactus Garden, they have many awesome succulents and cacti to purchase.

    If you like cycads, definitely purchase from Indian Rock palms and Cycads, some screaming deals there on really nice cycads.

    My yard gets no sun, so I have hunted high and low for a crop that will grow despite everything being against it. Figured out that squash and zucchini are the way to go, as I bury many lb of catfish carcasses in my yard during winter from the IV and need them converted to greenwaste to be recycled before next catfish season. Squash plants as high as a 55 gallon drum..

    You could grow multiple species of palms, if palms are to your liking.

    Really robust plants for no sunlight. Have you tried fried squash blossoms in butter? Favorite of those from Michoacán. Pelleted fish meal is the main fertilizer of commercial organic farming in the IV. Looks like a little powdery mildew on the top leaves of your squash plants. You got any dusting sulfur? We just finished up our carrots a month ago before it turned really hot.

    I get a whopping six weeks of sun to work with. Whatever grows in that time grows, what fails fails...

    Cucumbers are quick. How do you like radishes? We grew 70 acres of cucumbers for the company that makes pickles for Subway, McDonalds, ect. one year. Only took 38 days.

    Everytime I pass through the IV, I’v always wanted to grab my camera and shoot some frames of the guys/gals working in the fields. No faces, just calloused hands working the fields, machinery in the background, row after row of plants.

    I’m really liking this thread. Only pics I have right now is of some tomatoes and some bell peppers.
