Hi David,

It is amazing how much free fruit there is out there, isn't it? Hope you continue to enjoy touring around and visiting your family members. I should learn from you, as I'm not very good at visiting friends and family.

Hi Bruce,
Yeah, I remember a ton of cactus fruit being available in Las Vegas in the older areas. I'm not sure where all these prohibitions on chickens in suburban and urban yards, but that definitely has to change.

Hi Judy,

How cool you get to go olive harvesting in Umbria! I keep telling my friends around here that agrotourism is on the rise, and that they could get some volunteer help on their farms in exchange for room and board. I can think of about a thousand farm agritourism places I'd love to visit myself. I'd kill to be able to help with the horseradish harvest in Poland for a week or two, or help with the rice harvest on Bali or the pineapple harvest on Hawaii for a day or so.

So, I'm in the phone book as Charles Gush in Rapallo should you have need of any help while you're here in Italy. I'm only a few hours driove from Umbria, so if you find yourself in any trouble, please don't hesitate to call.

I've got a neighbor who has several dozen prickly pear cacti in his yard, and he won't eat the fruit. Mores the pity.

Will be helping in the harvest of the fruit of the olive tree in Umbria in Oct., Fellow Blogger! Prickly pears make good jam.

Rick, you never cease to amaze me. I didn't think that cactus grew in Italy. I always think of grapes and wine which doesn't seem to go together in a growing season. Well, quite frankly I can see why no one else is in competition with you for the fruit of the cacti patch. Only you could figure out a way to forage the ten foot high prickly pear fruit of the cactus. It seems that you have quite an adventure no matter where you go or what you do. Thanks for always sharing your interesting life style.
