    Prickly pear can be used as a vegetable, sharpen the edge of a spoon and scrape of the thorns, then thinly slice and cook. It is only a cactus and this is how the Mexicans do it.

    The fruit is also delicious, using rubber gloves rub of the fine prickles in cold water, cut open and scoop the flesh out.

    Good emergency food.

    This I just found and is interesting, the prickle pear is the actual fruit but in Australia came to be recognised as the whole cactus plant because we were not use to cacti at that point in our history. http://www.foodreference.com/html/art-cactus.html

    Hope you did not pay him. First I have hear of it and I do a bit of home maintenance. Cost of washers is bugger all.

    Leave the straw as they will be getting help from the bacteria to set up their

    immune system. Just put a bit of fresh stuff on top.

    They tryed in Qld last year but a group of Lawyers told them they would do a class action

    Their reasons were simple the government and councils encouraged people to put tanks in with rebates so the responsibility rest with the government.

    Otherwise they would argue that the rebates were offered as a prelude to a hidden tax(Storage tax). The Qld government and Brisbane council dropped the matter real quick.

    Leave them on the vine to dry is the best drying method. This will depend on the weather. If you want a lot in storage keep picking and freeze or dry by some other method than mother nature

    85 mm in the last 21 hrs and it has just started light rain again. O well time to get wet as some things have to be done with reports of the rain continuing through to next week.

    Quite agree, my chook shed is flooded and their yard is a mess. The whole area around there is under water.

    Tomatoes have taken a bashing and I have a pile of seedlings to plant which at the moment is a no go.

    Went to the bottom of the block and it is completely saturated and i am on a good sloping block. The creek is running fast and wide as well.

    And it is still coming down.
