Remember my spineless prickly pears I planted outside in the dead of August in triple digit Texas summer temperatures?
Here is a picture I took on August 23rd – only 13 days ago.
And here is a picture I took today on Sept. 5th. This opuntia engelmannii var subarmata is a beast! I am so impressed at its growth rate – actually stunned is a better word. Every time I go out and look at them (I have three and all have this same rate of growth) I am in awe.
Had to share – there are some things you can plant in the summer that will still do well! A little positivity for those of us that just can’t stop planting – even in the middle of summer.
