Hi Gabriel,
It's great to see experiments like this. It makes the rest of us more willing to try it out. It would be really great to see follow up posts and videos about how you harvest, thresh and winnow the seed and what your yield is.
Congratulations on a successful experiment!
 
Note to self: don't get into a fist fight with a cactus. Command this tiny ad to do it:
