Chia Cuke Salad in Banana Leaf

image Where does the machete go? The good one, just the right weight, the right size for me. It’s like a magnet being drawn into the hands of a worker. And I need to cut all the banana leaves off a hundred trees. I know. But I gotta do it while I’m motivated. So I will use this hacksaw-type thing, a toothed, curved saw. And you know what? It works better than the machetes! Woohoo! Makes me feel good to be able to do manual labor again.
