No, I don't grow my cactus outside, as I don't believe mine are hardy.  Of 
course, we have the native Opuntia, but I don't grow it because I had a bad 
experience with it as a kid walking barefoot.  I just take my cactus and 
succulents outside to the hot, sunny deck for six months out of the year and 
bring them inside to sunny windows for the winter where I don't fool with 
them or rarely water them.  What with self-watering in summer and them going 
through dormancy in winter, my plants pretty much take care of themselves.
