Cactus Invasion


As usual, I'm late. The place looks like a mess.


That little machine there is a brush mower and I finally started, getting ready to plant the bean trials. But as I was mowing today, I found lots of outcast cactus paddles. Earlier in the Spring, I was trimming a cactus and just threw the paddles across the field behind my house.


The great thing is these paddles have decided to make themselves at home.


My finger is pointing to a single root. I assume I broke it when I lifted the paddle to see what was underneath. The nice thing is, you can lay the paddles down or plant them vertically and they still want to grow.


I just love examples of nature taking care of business if we just keep out of her way.
