I told you some time ago, and showed a photo, of the jumbo aloe vera plant in the window right by my desk. It was tipping the pot over so I decided to cut a big leaf almost daily and scrape out the inner gel for smoothees. I still have about 4-5 leaves to cut and use up. I have been staring at the plant and pondering whether there will be gel I can rescue from the stem to which all those leaves were attached. There is scar tissue where I cut some of the leaves off, but I don’t know if that goes deep into the stem.
