Around here prices go up every spring. I think I have enough in the pantry to make it through april without much purchasing. The hens are putting out eggs at top speed and still have 2lbs of meat from a 2nd harvest, and 2bags of beans, some canned peas, veg and fruit. If I remember to sprout some seeds and the radishes get going, I'll be set...of course it froze the last few nights so I am probably dreaming about the radishes.

ate up most of my spinach rotini but forgot anything to put on it so a tad boring. I'm giving up on the infinity of canned peas. I'm thinking of using them as a chicken feed supplement. At least they will get eaten.

Ate up some tiny oranges and working my way through the romaine lettuce.

Getting 3-6 eggs per day (the blue egger is hiding her eggs so might be getting more) (actual easter egg hunt!), so trying to eat more of those too. Still have beef and ground buffalo to eat up next week at work and a few jars of canned duck, chicken and venison to eat.

I'm set for proteins and fruit and starches this month. If I plan ahead, I can sprout enough seeds for greens! With any luck, will have greens in the tiny green house by May. Fingers crossed.
