We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
I am thrilled with my Prickly Pear! It's the only true cactus (that I know of) that is hardy in zone 6! Amazing- desert plant in the damp pine woods. Thank you for letting me know that it's supposed to fall over- I though Iwas mistreating it!
DGer Chantell gave me 3 pads of Prickly Pear, and they've taken off, gowing like crazy. One word of caution: when someone ships you a box of Prickly Pear pads, LOOK IN THE BOX BEFORE PUTTING YOUR HAND INSIDE. Um, hot soapy water, tweezers, tape, glue... all are more difficult to use with both hands covered in spines! Yow!!!
