Far as I know if he can see it he can steel it. I like underground stealth factor. I plan on making cone shaped underground rooms with the narrow end up level with soil and bigger room underneath with a compression ring at top or just a wood box holding sides in a ring.  In sandstone. It will also have a recharge well for drainage.

Starting with a pond on high ground water flows into a long pipe in the sun. A timed valve fills an insulated hot tank. At night the hose gets very cold a valve opens at 4am and starts filling the cold tank.   Note in Puebla's mountains the temperature difference from day to night is high. After the hot or cold has been used up the water can be used for irrigation. Had thought of using cold water to condense atmospheric moisture but I think it would produce close to nothing.

You could puff them off. Like puffed rice or puffed wheat. If you had a puffer and I'm guessing you don't.

Spacing should be more dense and hight should be unrestricted, central leader pruning or no pruning at all. You want a large root system. Pruning the trees like a normal orchard reduces life span of trees and it affects how deep the roots can get. I have been experimenting with opuntia cacti as mulch. It is inflamable and holds water accessable any time of the year.

Okra seeds aka, gumbo seeds. Reported use as coffee substitute by early African Americans. Many plants in the fabaceae family have similar compounds to coffee if you still want the alcaloides like caffeine. Coca for example very similar effect on the body.

All yams make bulbils. In the USA the term yam is used to describe (Ipomoea batatas) common sweet potatoes. True yams are white on the inside.

This year the bulbils went lnThe fridge as soon as they ripened in September or October. I took some out in January not long enough poor germination. But only one month later chilled until Feb 15 they sprout very fast.
