This is my biggest bowl with peas processed and being washed. I got 13 meals from this bowlful on Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday I have to clean out the bedroom with all the plants in it. They will be moving to the cellar to the spare room, the only safe place I have. The lights will move with them, and the heat mat for the ginger.
