comment Basement hydro or aquaponics?
I've seen all of these plants in hydroponic setups and I think they would be fine together. None of them have invasive roots. Your main issue will be competition for light. Strawberries and lettuce are low to the ground, while tomatoes and peppers grow up tall or viney…especially tomatoes. If you can give the tomatoes enough space when you plant them to fill out without blocking out the light from the lettuce and strawberries, I think you'll be fine.

comment Can I grow a fruit bearing pistachio tree?
I did end up planting three fruit baring pistachio trees that I acquired in Alamogordo, NM. 2 female and 1 male. They haven't been through an entire year in the ground yet, but are doing well so far.

comment How can I burn dead tree leaves and grass during wind?
In my experience ash can slow down or stop your compost pile from decomposing if you add ash to your compost. In my opinion putting ash in your compost or soil should be avoided.

comment What is a good companion for asparagus?
I planted Tomatoes and Marigolds nearby asparagus 2 years ago. Our Asparagus patch has been very successful so far. I haven't tried to plant anything in the Asparagus patch itself though, only nearby.

comment Is it okay to grow English ivy on the base of a tree trunk?
I would vote "no" to Virginia Creeper, it can be VERY invasive and is hard to get rid of.
