What's the altitude where you are at? Any native vegetation? How alkaline is the soil? Deer factor? If you drill, you'll probably be able to water more than you can afford to deer fence right away.

How many potato plants would I need for a family of 8 for a year and how much water do they need. Also What kind of corn would I grow for flour/meal and what kind of yield per plant. I will also be growing pinto beans black eyed peas and lima beans. How many plants per bushel?

Reading the first post was like reading a summery of Carol Deppe's book The Resilient Gardener. Only she also talks about squash and duck eggs.
Deppe is writing in a different part of the world to you, but there is so much information there, there's lots you can use. I think this is the perfect book for where you are at right now.
