Gardening in West Texas-Container Style!

Yeah I know my titles seem to get more and more lame hehehe. I've had such limited success with gardening it seems in this horrid soil we have. My onions, potatoes and beans seem to be growing "good", which really just means they aren't dead, but nothing else seems to survive. I have one cucumber plant that ended up someone in the watering furrows I have created. I think I may plant more down in there. The heat around here just seems to drain everything, add in a little bit of 60 mile per hour winds and all the good soil is gone! However I had a small handful of plants I bought in containers in the corner protected probably the best they can be from all these things and they are doing great!
"Giant Tomato Tree" As seen on tv.lol This thing has been growing for 4 months!

Our first tomato in 2 years! Turning yellow now woohoo!

My containers hiding in the corner.

I know everyone loves my chickens ;o) we are on egg watch! Should be any day now!

The rest of the garden.

I, too, line in a hot, dry, windy area. Sixty mile an hour winds are life to us, too. But I see soil in your garden. I only have decomposed granite (sand), and then under that is caliche (ground as hard as cement). We are lucky just to be able to have some trees around the house.
