J, looking mean! Are those tomatoes with the "green shoulders" heirloom or is it just weather/sun related?

Anyone here gardening on tank water?

I'm moving out of the city in a couple of weeks, to a village between Huntly and Raglan. This drought has me a bit worried about the future possibilities of my vege garden down there.
What shall I plant that doesn't need heaps of water?
It has been guestimated that the tank is 5 thousand gallons. It's fairly full right now (even though there's been almost no rain since November) because only one person has been living there, and there is currently no vege garden to water.

Current inventory includes two very small feijoa trees, a very small lemon tree and a massive walnut tree on the grass verge. 8) Might plant a passionfruit vine along the fence next to the septic tank field. Anyone know if it's ok to put a vege garden below the septic field? The property is on a north facing slope, and if I put a vege garden above the septic, it will be harder to get the water from the tank up the hill to it.

Suggestions?

i could just about walk thru a patch of chillis and not even see them they look so similar to black nightshade.

family resemblance, but most nightshades are bluer green, with hairier leaves and that distinctive nightshade smell. Most chillies have glossier leaves and are a lighter green.

yeh, but they just look like a patch of weeds, mind you i probably WOULD notice, cos i notice all that stuff, cos im always thinking about eating black nightshade, ive tried the berries, but never the leaves which apparently you can eat.
i was trying to point out the similarities between tomato, potato, capsicum and some nearby black nightshade to my mate, but he just couldnt see it.
