Out of one, many

I mentioned my good deal at the garden show -- a deceptively top-heavy aloe vera for $12.95. Aloe is an amazing plant; pinch off a portion of a leaf, spread the gel on your owie (it's especially good for kitchen burns), and you heal, miraculously, sans blisters or terminal bleeding.

Today I separated and repotted the monster plant. When I bought it, it was in one of those tall black plastic (half-gallon, maybe?) pots, and incredibly root-bound. I now have thirteen pots-full of aloe vera. Want one?

I'd love one for my kitchen garden window. So handy in the kitchen!
