I cooked all of our meals at home again. That made me realize we had piles of food, which made me decide to do a pantry challenge.
I signed up for a free herbalism mini-course from Vintage Remedies. It is self-paced. It is very interesting, and I am learning quite a bit.
I picked strawberries at my parents' house twice. They are just starting to bear, but I got enough to make a batch of strawberry popsicles.
I also picked several cucumbers from the greenhouse cucumber plant. I started some oregano and marjoram seeds in the greenhouse rather than buy plants. They have grown well and will be ready to plant in pots soon. A tomato plant branch broke a couple of weeks ago while I was trying to wrangle the limbs. I put it in water and before long it was covered in roots. I planted it in one of the raised beds, and it looks great now. It also has several little tomatoes on it.
While at the grocery store I looked through the bags of marked down bananas. I have learned that these are not always overripe bananas. People often pull off one or two bananas from a bunch and leave those behind. My grocery store bags these up and sells them for half-price.
I used rags to clean with rather than paper towels. I have enough that I can go a couple of weeks before washing them.
I refilled a foaming soap container. I think foaming soap means less waste. All it takes is a few squeezes of soap and some warm water. It makes the liquid soap go much further.
It was a very quiet week here, and those are the highlights. I did no extra shopping and talked myself out of a few purchases. I am trying to do some spring cleaning/decluttering. It is good motivation to not buy more stuff and work to make do with what I have.
