Spring is finally here and today I had to continue a long overdue project in the garden. I promised Debbie that I would construct some type of hydration system for the garden boxes and I got halfway through it last season but never finished. With an idea in my head, I went to Lowes to get supplies. This was a good distraction from food today.
I worked very hard in the garden and got a lot done today (to be continued tomorrow and beyond). I worked very closely to the asparagus patch and a couple times I accidentally stepped on a few new stalks coming out of the ground. These were 'instant eats' and although I'm not a big fan of raw asparagus, they were fine - just a little dirty. A few times during my project I completely ran out of energy. It came back quickly but it's a strange feeling when all of a sudden your body just feels totally wiped out and you need to take a rest.

Today marks the end of the second week and beginning of the third and my Weekly Reward for surviving this week is supposed to be a jar of popcorn and a jar of trail mix (granola, nuts, chocolate). Both of these will be nice intermediate snack food to have between meals. I'll have to make a market run to see what blend of trail mix I can put together. I usually make my own with ingredients I like - rather than getting a pre-made package.
Oh Bee-hive, baby.
