I've found when I eat, I have a tendency to eat the same things over and over. This week pizza was on the menu.
You were really hoping for a finished photo weren't you? Well I didn't get a photo of any of the pizzas made this week. Weirdly one day I took a photo of the ingredients used from the garden. Tomato sauce, frozen basil, garlic. But no end photos. Sometimes I wonder about myself. My stock of tomato sauce is holding up well. I think it will make it until next August. But not if I keep making pizzas for lunch every day.
I seem to have gotten out of soup mode since the weather has been warming up. The garden is really melting out now. The weather is forecasted to be in the 40Fs all week, so I expect the last of the snow to be gone by the end of the week. Then the ground just has to thaw. I need to get some plastic on it to warm it up on sunny days. It won't be too long until gardening season is back.
I did spend money this week. I bought 8'x1" bamboo and 4'x5/8" bamboo for stakes and poles. I'm not talking a few poles. I bought 100 of the first and 75 of the second. That is a lot of bamboo. I did a calculation for how many poles I would need to make my trellises. I need a lot to make them. I have three sets of bean trellies all the way across a bed for 22 poles each. That is 66. Plus I want to make a couple other structures here and there. They sell them in 50 packages so 100 it was. The 4' ones will be braces for my structures and also stakes. Again I'm buying for the long haul. It ought to last a while. I have extras when one dies. The bamboo itself was cheap, but the shipping basically doubled the price (which was $130). I'm talking overly long packages and 100lbs of weight all the way from the other coast. I thought about doing it in pipes, but I really like bamboo better. I love the look of bamboo. I love that it is easy to cut or drill. It is lighter than wood. So bamboo it is. I'll be adding it to my tally later when I get the final invoice on Wednesday when they arrive.
