    May 6, Wednesday/ Day 52 more breakout on nose today! Put some treatment on it way off plan yesterday & have been slipping up during testing. Finding it hard to do pure W30 days in between testing. its been so wonderful to add back some things - hard to let them go! Will test wheat again today & perhaps go back to W30 several days & slowly add back some things &/or test more
