THORNS AND THORNS

Cactus paddles and dewberries
This is a neat picture...thorns and more thorns!  Saw this on the road leading to the farm.  It's a patch of cactus growing next to a patch of dewberries.  Definitely one spot you would not want to fall in to the middle of, ha. 

Now that I think about it, cactus paddles like this are edible and dewberries are delicious, I wonder if this is nature's way of suggesting a recipe?  LOL!

We'll be checking out the development of the dewberries this weekend.  Hoping for a lot to be ready soon.

Just enough ingredients ( cactus and strawberries) to get your creative juices flowing.

I DID fall into a cactus patch once. It was miserable. I avoid them like the plague, haha.

That was a very interesting though... 1st man. Nature IS like that, huh? Someone (like 2nd man) should try it!!! hehehe

And my taste buds, ha. It wouldn't be a bad combination, except I don't know much about cactus, or "nopales", and how they are cooked. Might need to do some googling huh? Thanks!!

All I can say is OUCH!!! I can understand your fear. Yikes!!!

You are so right. I told him earlier to read up on nopales cooking and see what he can come up with. We'll see what happens!!
