Today completes the first 2 weeks and I weighed 184.4 lbs on the scale this morning. That's a 13.6 lb loss - right on target. Feeling pretty good. I have a nice reserve of fish for the next several days and my rice supply is still substantial. However, the asparagus forest is starting to thin out. It has been such a productive crop but that only goes so far before over harvesting takes its toll. I'm going to have to start branching out in the veg department and nothing else seems to be cropping up right now in the garden. I didn't pre-plant a bunch of lettuce, collards and chard like I had done in years past and right about now that kind of plant would be ready to pick. Poor planning on my part. Stupid. I should be smarter than that.

I should have a nice supply of fish jerky for several days. And I can reuse the brine solution a few times before it gets old. I'm looking forward to some smoked bass. Yum.
