    Depends on the season. Summer.... Squash, tomatoes, peppers and corn I would say are my top 4

    In the winter you can grow winter crops. Croms, bulbs and hearty stuff. Onions.

    I have 3 tomato plants also but no production yet, it takes a special summer for us to get those working at my place. Lettuce, spinach and parsly just start to bolt here, too short of a photoperiod, they think its fall already.

    hm, I gave my 400W metal halide with ballast and batwing reflector to my pops in law a few years ago, I dont think he is using it though, maybe I will get it back someday. made a hella difference with my houseplants when I ran it up.

    You could grow food year round with that addition to the sun, I'll bet.
