This news story
reminded me how Luke Skywalker and his uncle and aunt managed to survive on Tatooine...
The details of the "moisture farm" are described in the novelization
of Star Wars (A New Hope). Apparently, Luke and his aunt and uncle are
running a somewhat sucessful commercial farm and not just subsisting.
Naturally, they do consume some of the water, but sell the remainder
on the market.
"Harvest is when I need you the most. Only one more season. This year
we'll make enough on the harvest so I'll be able to hire some more
hands." Owen Lars, to Luke Skywalker
