Launaea Sarmentosa used to be our local favourite vegetable because it was organically found along the beachside in Phuket. It helps reducing hot-in and solve constipation.

That's extremely nice - and something what I totally miss from Thailand: vegetarian food. In our region, unfortunately, they learn so slow and keep on resisting to the growing demands of customers changing needs about vegetarian food. Soth Eastern Styria is an old traditional "pig" country... We had the experience that traditional farmers also did extremely hard in adapting to CoVid by using direct-selling chances. The level of digital literacy is extremely low here... Yes, sustainable development has a lot to do with competence raising...

Ceterum censeo mutationem climae esse vincendem.

(Incidentally, I think that global warming must be defeated)

Historically, the Launaea Sarmentosa was the geometry dash breeze most popular vegetable in our community due to the fact that it could be found growing organically along the beach in Phuket. This helps to alleviate constipation and reduce hotness in the body.
