I have steadfastly resisted pressure from ex-hubby and son to plant prickly pear. My mind fills with passages from the journals of the Lewis & Clark expedition of the terrible effects of prickly pear spines on the feet of all of them as they moved up the Missouri River. Besides that, although it grows well enough here, it seems incongruous in a yard or garden on the NC Piedmont.
