Cactus farming! Looks hard to harvest. In the 80's my Tucson friend spoke derisively of the suburb Green Valley and its residents illegal practice there of stealing (or buying stolen)suguaro cacti purloined from the nearby national park. They were planted in night-irrigated 10'x 10' front lawns of the cookie-cutter developments. But the cacti, unaccustomed to being watered, would spend the night sucking up the water, swell, then fall over from their own weight to the chagrin of the homeowner finding them the next morning.
