Prickly Pear Cactus, they finally grew! :D
2 1/2 years ago I cut a few pads to start some, but thought they had just withered and dried down, now there is I think, 4 of them, the first one came up last fall, the other 3 this summer! :)
One even has three new pads formed on the first pad that sprouted on it! :)
The novelty wore off of eating them, but they are a plant I dearly love! :D
Now he's back and so are they! :D
I guess the old hay I put down as mulch back there behind the house must have revived them! :)
I hope they start blooming in a year or two! :D
I've been called a prick in less subtle ways Larry :) :) ...fry ya up some and enjoy!!!
It'll be a few years before the grow enough to fry any but I think I may have a jar in the cupboard, just might be my breakfast!
but after thinking on my post from you mentioning that, it sounds really incriminating! :D
The cactus was really good, I fried it with yellow zucchini and walla walla onion! :)
using a play on words Larry !!!:) as I recall that pricly pear post went on for quite awhile :) Sounds like what you made up there was really good .... parcel post some here to NC....
after taking a break from them,,,,I was eating way to many of them and got tired of them!
They sure are good with the Onions and Yellow Zucchini from my garden! :)
The Zucchini I got seeds from YB for still haven't grown much, not sure what makes the difference!
