Aloe Vera plant borrowed from www.edibleblog.com
I know, it sounds like a warning but it is actually meant to let you know I will be bringing a double handful of aloe vera cuttings tonight for sharing at our garden club meeting. 6:30 P.M. at the UT Ag Extension office 2105 Midland Road Shelbyville, tn (just in case you are interested)
One is so big that I don't think it will be good for rooting, just using, so if you do not have a green thumb, but want to extract all the good stuff from raw, organic aloe, come on down.
The others can go either way. You can root it, squeeze some or both.
To date, I do not recall any health warnings associated with aloe. Amazing! Usually everything good comes with a caveat (warning) about something. Here's one, it is not good substitute for toilet paper, but it has been added to wipes for its' soothing affect.
