Although not nearly as numerous, there were still a few patches of barrel cactus along my drive/hike in the Sonoran Desert National Monument, south of Maricopa, Arizona.

While Carnegiea gigantea, saguaro, have an extensive system of very fine roots just below the surface, check out how minimal their thickest roots are!

Over the weekend, I saw large pumpkins planted with mums, so I decided to do a redo of last year’s pumpkin planters.

Quick and easy: cut and clean pumpkin and plant! The three succulents I used here are: Sedeveria hybrid ‘Blue Giant’, Crassula arborescens undulatifolia ‘Ripple Jade’, and Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’.

I had a thought tonight …

How long can you get the pumpkins to last?  I want to try this if there’s a way to preserve them for a reasonable amount of time.

It really depends on your weather, but at least a few weeks and up to or over a month if it is cool enough.
