Day 215 – Opuntia aka Prickly Pear

I would like to transplant all of these that I find just growing wild here on the farm into a cacti garden somewhere. It is one of the few plants the goats and chickens will leave alone. It would be nice to cultivate them, harvest some of the fruit and maybe try my hand at some candy or jelly. I will have to research this interesting plant some more. I must admit, I was completely unaware of the many ways this plant can be utilized.
