Sounds like a sticky situation.

Interesting. Years ago I used to pick a cactus off someone's big yard cactus bush as I was walking by. Then I took it home and cooked it. I was a health nut. It never became my favorite food.

Then I discovered I could buy it at the grocery. But that was not as much fun, so I just quit.

must be a regional thing... not sure I've even seen cactus in the grocery store but I admit I haven't gone asking for it!

by the way we actually have prickly pear growing in parts of Virginia - in areas where there is shale rock that stay dry ...will not retain water even after a rain - actually a native plant.

:-) I have seen prickly pear and also cactus jam.

People can cook cactus with tomatoes.

Aloe Vera is very good for healing inside and out. Tomatoes help with the harmful affects of the sun.

Just this week, I was thinking about TFL and cactus and wondering if you have a cactus garden.

Hope this is not one of those deals where the crops brought in to be processed is also mixed in with other stuff frowned on by law enforcement... ;-)

just kidding but apparently ignorant on farming on arid and semi-arid land.

Perhaps John should re-think what he wants to grow! ;-)
