BB what a gorgeous cactus!

Joan thanks for the grape juice advice.  I hope I have reason to need it next year!

I bought about 100 cheap daffodil bulbs at BiMart and planted them.  I hope they make for a cheerful looking Spring yard,

Bertold, that is a fantastic cactus with beautiful color.

Daniel, making grape juice is easy as can be if you have one of these juicers that I shared in the photos. I am sure one can be found in a second hand store, Goodwiil, or other recycle centers. Just put water in the bottom section, put grapes, stems and all in the grape section, and follow directions. As you can see, I use a chair to hold sterilized jars to catch the juice out of the tube. As son as the jar is filled, I cap them with sterile lids and caps. They usually seal without further processing. 

Because I freeze mine, I use freezer jars and make sure not to fill the jars too full or they will burst when frozen. I've been there, done that.

Yep, it's in a porch. I've got a couple that are pretty huge indoors in pots too.

After looking at your xmas cactus several times, it appears to be indoors rather than outdoors as I first thought.

Impressive, Bertold. Mine doesn't even have buds yet, though the Thanksgiving cactus has small closed buds.

I just turned-off my outdoor water and drained it because there will be freezing weather the next 2 days.

I won't have to use it until spring because the rainy season started 2 months ago and there's been more rain than normal.

Nice big plant Bertold.  I don't know how big they get outdoors.  My mother had one indoors, in a pot, so it never became large.

Christmas cactus kicking in.

Congratulations on the acquisition of lots of brown gold Daniel.
