HARVESTING GREENS FROM THE HEDGE

My 'hedge' looks too messy...
Time to 'cut' it.



I planted cassava stems on a row on my front garden.
I have planned to grow edible hedge on my garden.
Look... two months after planting I can pick the young tender leaves and shoots.



I will boiled and eat it with 'sambal' (hot spicy chilli sauce) and hot rice.
After cutting the shoots, the plant will produce more shoots on the leaf axils.



I have thought to grow other edible hedge on my garden.
A productive and useful hedge.



Reader, do you grow edible hedge too?

  1. That's a good harvest from your edible hedge. It's good when a plant can be productive as well as being functional.

  3. We don't grow and edible hedge as such but on our allotment we have some fruit bushes and raspberry canes that act as a hedge. We also use alpine strawberries to edge our beds on the allotment.

  4. Oh Endah
    you grow in real rarities.
    For a few days with me again snowing, it's cold and we have yet spring.
    There is no sun and heat.

    1. I hope the real spring is coming on your area. All snow will melt soon, and you get the warmness.

  5. Hi Endah, growing an edible hedge, how cool is that? It certainly never crossed my mind and I have never seen anything like that. Unfortunately I am not familiar with cassava stems, but I hope they tasted good!
    Warm regards,

    1. Hi, Christina.
      Actually we grow cassava for its tubby root, but here the young leaves and shoot are usually cooked as leafy vegetables. The boiled or steamed leaves have a delicious taste.
