The cactus that would (NOT) be dinner..and peas!

Hi all, it's me again, the one who bought a cactus pad from the produce section at the grocery store & made it back into a plant. I posted last May when it sprouted 2 new pads (wasn't sure if it was flowering or what), & I'm back to share the continued growth.. Last spring when it first started to show real signs of growth: New pads! This spring..look at all the new growth! I'm going to put it in a much bigger pot soon; eventually it'll go in the ground, but for now I like having it mobile so I can keep it out of the way of my 2 year old grandson. And for some variety, here's today's harvest (which I'm snacking on as we speak)..mmm sweet peas. I planted them in 3 waves, each 2 weeks apart, so I should be getting peas for weeks to come, yay! :D
