I’ve gotten some grief in the newsroom for my cactus story that ran recently. It’s not always easy finding six or so things to write about every week in a city where Olive Garden makes the best Italian food. But that story might have been a stretch, even for me.
It turns out the cactus at Belvoir Springs isn’t the only one shooting upwards at a breakneck pace. A man in Newark today emailed me a photo of his century plant. He said his plant is taller than the one I wrote about in Fremont.
I’m unconvinced. It definitely has the edge in girth, but the Fremont one appears taller. You be the judge.
