    Another tip buy a pressure washer and a good 100 ft hose or two and extension cords. You don't need to spend a ton there are basic electric ones for around $100 or so that are good enough if you aren't using them commercially. They are lightweight and very easy to use. Use it to clean siding, walkways, outdoor furniture, driveways, grills, etc. Your place will look sparkly clean and new. You can wash your vehicles with it too.

    I have a high powered gas one yet use a cheap hypertough 1500 electric from walmart more around the house because it is light and so easy to use and just powerful enough to do a good enough job. Takes longer though. Here is a different electric than mine performs about the same:

    Pfft...I have one of those. It eats electricity faster than a wolf can eat a hamster. I was using it when the wife turned on her hair dryer, and the power drain blew every fuse in the house.

    Go with gasoline...it is cheaper than electricity.

    Gas are better without question but these are cheap and much lighter/easy to haul around. Good for easy around the house stuff. I use mine all the time and never have problems with blowing fuses. You might want to update your electric.

    Plant your garden on the SOUTH side of your home where it will get sun all day long not in the shade on the north, east, or west.

    Mix your soil with steer manure.

    Add phosphate fertilizer or else rotate the crops over 3 years with clover in the 3rd year.

    Water your garden during the nighttime until it is flooded.

    Use powder insecticide or else get a bunch of spiders for it to kill the other bugs.

    Well he can always just grow outdoors in a cornfield like they used to do in the olden days.
