1. Ours were blooming a couple of weeks ago.

We have three large ones in the yard... maybe we can make one jar of jam?

5. Well, If you all want to have a DU Tucson meetup and cactus plucking

I have about a million Saguaro at the end of my street and I will let you know when they turn red.

10. Well, apparently only the Tohono O "Odam are allowed to harvest them in the park

But there are hundreds of them outside of the fence line. I'm making jam.

11. I had always thought only licensed Tohono O'Odham were allowed to harvest them anywhere.

But maybe the article I read long ago was only about the Saguaro National Monuent
