Veggie Plots & Pots

I finely got out and turned my veggie Plots. They have been covered In “White Nancy” (?) and or wild pea.  They reseed themselves, keeps the weed down and look pretty in the California late winter.  When they start to fade I know its time to till136_1688

Not much look at now; but seeded with radishes, lettuce, and chard.136_1691

But how do you like my wire bed frame for my peas and green beans?

And pot for carrots.

Here’s the video I got the idea from.  Love his heavy on the pots garden.

Oh, and the crooked path to my compost bins.  *:)

Poor covered Peacock.  The wild pea just goes crazy.

Wasting Away: The Four Pounds Of Cheese Praject

I have experienced very little waste. Now at day 7 this is what I did not anticipate. I am buying a lot less food, okay “a lot” comparatively.

Yes, wanting to show how little I waste has led to more awareness of what I already have in my fridge/pantry when I shop. Also friendly reminders to me that there are only two of us to feed. This makes for is a bit more redundancy in our diet, but not enough to cause frustration or dinning out more that usual.

I took this focus when I dined out at well. I usually get the full Caesar with chicken when I go to lunch at Rigatoni’s. I often have a small pile of lettuce left. (Of course the chicken and croutons are gone.) I got the half salad with chicken on Wednesday for lunch. No waste, and I was satisfied, so I can do it again.

This Weeks Waste In Chronological Order:

Beet tops. I’ve heard you can cook them, but I have never ventured into “greens”. Maybe it’s time?

Beet tops: How do you cook them?

Mold on my Parmigiano, cut off. The rest was still good.

Moldy Paraigiano & Romain Core

I forgot my tea on Thursday. *:(

Would have drank it but I get up early, 4:30am, on Friday

Six days of compost and a potato piece that escaped frying.

The potato slice jumped the bowl when I rinsed them.

Chicken guts. I gave my cat the liver when she was alive, the rest has always been waste.

I get the whole chicken, it's the best price per pound.
