a farm that makes sense out here...

New business venture up the road from me.  Couldn't help but notice their fence isn't bunny proof.  I wonder if that is going to be a problem.  63,78,29,0,W

Oly is expanding operations into Texas to avoid the border tax?

What are they doing for water?

John Wells said...


Apparently they don't need much water so I don't really think that is an issue. Note - they thrive in the desert.

The javelinas will like them too.

Ok I get it, growing cactus. Still it is usually dormant until substantial rains water it. olyproduce.com

I am not a big fan of cacti even with tomatoes, but I guess it is good for one. I had alot of Aloe Vera in the refrigerator and discarded it. But that is a good idea for a business there.

We were intrigued at how they planted. Rows of three?

On a related note the little toothy desert creatures have done substantial damage to our prickly pears.

given the amount on the ground ( in the pic - thinning, QC?) maybe a sharing arrangement will be arrived at – or better fences… wonder what the goats would think… U.S. HQ in El Paso?
off the Oly site
can a traffic light be far behind?

potentially more of a threat than the bunnies - Cactoblastis cactorum
Australian monument
another potential harvest: cochineal, for lipstick…
Nopal - approximately one hundred and fourteen known species

A 'nopalitos by the American people for the American people' development and business venture I presume..if Mexican...would they have to relocate and settle this venture behind the wall then?
