Tidying up our tiny garden sometimes need a long time and hard work.
This little space in our eastern backyard needs more than one step.
First step is weeding and remove the unproductive plants.
The second is cleaning the ground, then digging.
After two steps, this space was not as tidy as we expected.
The pathway still full of weed, and Cincau vine (Cylea barbata Myers) still grew here and there.
Cincau grows well here.
The vine is creeping on the wall.
Some stalks finally collapsed caused by heavy rain several weeks ago.
I let the stalks that still firmly attached on to the wall.
So, I collected the Cincau leaves from the collapsed stalks for making greens jelly.
Greens jelly is used for fresh drink with lots of benefit.
Here besides fresh drink, cincau is used for medicinal purposes, such as to treat diarrhea, diabetes, osteoporosis, fever, hypertension, cancer, vertigo, stomach inflammation and many more.
A useful plant...
