    Hi guys,

    I thought to consider getting a agricultural land but I'm not sure what to plant yet and what technique to use like hydroponic for example.

    What is your favorite vegetables/fruit/flower? Or what are your thoughts or ideas on this?

    If I could, I would go for lilac because it smells so good. Strawberry/raspberry for fruit. I don't know much about watering systems though...I guess I could go and water everything with a simple hose in an hour, few times a week.

    I grow a large garden almost every year, both vegetables and fruits, I alternate it, one year I'll grow more veggies like green beans, corn, hot peppers, potatoes and preserve a lot of them canning and one year I'll grow watermelon, honeydew, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli...

    I also have an apple tree and pecan tree and wild blackberries and wild raspberries...Also a big row behind the garden I plant large sunflowers for the sunflower seeds...In the winter I plant rye and and wheat to replenish the soil with vital nutrients for the summer crops...

    Next spring I'm planting blueberry bushes...

    I wish I could grow rice, I hear its a lot of work or at least know how to grow it, I eat rice almost every day and would be nice to grow my own...

    Your location would be ideal I think for growing high valued crops, like coffee beans or coca beans, sugar cane or maybe soy beans...
