Jacob is a cactus I have taken under my wing, while the owner Nancy Oberholtzer Good is up north. Today his new pot to sit in arrived from Israel. So I shall replant him and let him sit in my house. He likes to be left alone because of his stingers, but I have replanted such prickly things before without touching them. I lasso them with a stiff piece of paper to lift him off his feet and put him in the pot.
