Also, just like GTG offered, I'd be more than willing to discuss trades for local fruit and/or honey in exchange for prickly pear. Once the season is upon us, I will gladly grab what I can. Drop me a PM if you would like anything. GTG would, I'm sure, be more than willing to do it - so I'll handle any overflow that he can't handle.
