Growing nopales

I finally have nopales!  For the longest time nothing happened with the nopal pads that I planted.  I knew they had roots because they were attached to the soil but nothing was growing.  Then in May, new pads started to grow.  I was not sure if I was supposed to cut some or if I needed to let it grow.  I have cut only a couple of pads and I had not cut anything from the plant that is on the ground.  I am extremely happy to have the opportunity to eat a fresh, free nopal from my garden.
