The itching hasn't abated since quitting wheat a few days ago, so I'm going to go back to eating bread. At first it seemed that it was helping, though.

Making constant batches of my malt soda (or near beer) by pouring extra malt syrup into the 1/2 gallon apple-juice bottle I use for brewing. Only enough dissolves to maintain a saturated solution, and I pour that off into my "drinking" bottle and refill the brewing bottle.

One of the houses on English Street has an overgrown lawn with weeds that look different from anything else I've seen nearby: maple-shaped leaves fuzzy underneath, almost white. Turns out they might be hibiscus, which are edible. If it's drought-tolerant, which sure seems to be the case, they might be good to transplant around other places in town.
