LivingRoomBrunoI have so much food left. I have a ton of frozen vegetables, tons of butter, and I could bathe in seltzer water. I won't make a dent in any of that stuff in the next week. Dog food and horse food are also fully-stocked for the foreseeable future. 

Still, I'm going to fly to the grocery store next Tuesday. I'd like to get my hair cut first. I shaved my head back in December and it has grown back all weird. It would be nice to not look crazy when I venture back into society. 

I'm going to keep growing lettuce. Every part of that experiment has been great. I've started new plants to replace the ones I ate. They're coming along well. I think if I doubled my operation, I could have a salad five out of seven days and never run out. I'm going to try to make that happen. My lights and air pump can already handle the capacity, I simply have to get one more bin to fill with water.

Today I had an avocado that a friend brought over. Yesterday, I ate a donated tomato. It will be nice to be able to buy those things whenever I want. I'm also looking forward to cream, yogurt, and fresh fruit.

Now that I'm nearing the end of the reclusion, I'm not so sure I want to try it again next year. It was fun, but I'm weary of it. As I've said before, the house is nicer when you get to return to it.

If you need me, I'll be spending the next five days trying to avoid "10 Cloverfield Lane" spoilers.
