    John, you know a good desert variety of corn? And if they can grow grapes in the Israeli desert and all through out bible culture, there must be a good grape strain. Any thoughts.

    You have been so helpful! I just bought my first house, and am a beginner. I try my best to get as many organic phytonutrients in my diet as possible, and what better way then to grow the plants myself?I have no idea what I'm doing and being in AZ does not make it any easier. You have been a God send! Keep doing what you do. :)

    All those plants need a lot of water, I would suggest better, nut trees, nopals, olive trees, or oaks wich you can eeat acorns from, i heard palo verde also give eatable fruits but all those plants from this video will evaporate a lot of water and wont grow strong roots, if you grow trees you,ll have to water then just the first years and after they will do ok.
