What a beautiful rainbow, Amer! How long before blue and purple come up?

My variegated Stenocactus (Echinofossulocactus).

I made a dish with turnip greens yesterday. Fried some left-over potatoes with onion and garlic, threw in the turnip greens with a handful of grated cheese. Tastes very good, is easy, cheap and healthy.

I've been enjoying all of the wonderful photos and advice as of late.  It is so wonderful to have such a wealth of knowledge and experience available!

Joan-  I'm thinking of you and hope this next month is as uneventful as it can possibly be for you.  Your attitude is admirable!

It is good to see Sentient on here every now and then.  Wishing you some restful days of admiring all of your hard work, and a speedy recovery.

So far, I have harvested about 1.5 lbs of French breakfast radishes!  I asked a friend if I could eat the radish greens and he said he does.  I decided to saute them as I would collard greens... with onions, garlic and a little bit of bacon.  They are delicious!  It makes me wonder what other greens we normally throw into the compost could also be eaten.  Have any of you tried any other tops?

Sentient, My cactus makes me too occupied otherwise cocktail bouganvilla grafting is a wonderful idea, producing a plant with flowers of many colours....

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 4, 2013 at 7:23am

That's a beautiful grafted cocktail bouganvilla.  I like lots of colors mixed together.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 4, 2013 at 7:20am

Amer, your Echinocereus are very interesting looking, as are many other of your cacti.

Comment by Plinius on April 4, 2013 at 1:58am

Amer, I enjoy your info very much! And it isn't wrong to speak with authority if you know what you're talking about.

Dominic, that bouganvilla is just outstanding! Oh! to have such a plant!

Comment by Dominic Florio on April 3, 2013 at 10:14pm

This was posted on Facebook by some garden page.  They say they do not sell this plant.  It is a grafted cocktail bouganvilla.
