This picture is of my son in an avacado tree. The tree is younger than the boy.

Juice the corn stalks for corn sugar it also makes nice corn stalks beer or vinegar. The dryish corn must be picked a bit earlier when the stalks have some green still. The corn may need to be dried more after harvest in some cases.

The volcano's general activity has increased dramatically over the past 7 months. Ash levels are less concentrated due to more water vapor. I fear that an aquifer may be seeping deeper than before. If a lage volume of water becomes steam at the same time boom. I didn't get an accurate measurement but my house is 18 to 24 km from the center of the volcano.

If you have too much land you will not be able to stop tilling everything in the first year I recommend ally cropping to start. Add more perennial rows each year. The older perennials will need less care after a few years freeing your time to tend to the new ones. Let's face it on a large scale no till only works with herbicide. I practice shallow tilling on my farm with ally crops. The un-tilled tree rows are managed with weed eater and weeding with straight edge shovel. Most orchards use herbicide in the un-tilled area near the trees.
  Flooding for extended periods is an ancient form of herbicide. This works in low areas or if you have an impermeable clay or bedrock if you dig trenches and use the soil to raise the growing bed.

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.
