    Pickling the other half of the leek crop today, or rather, tomorrow, as they have to soak in salt water 24 hours. While I'm at it, I'll pickle some purslane too (weedy but tasty wild plant that grows rampant in my garden).

    Enough ripe tomatoes to make a pint or so of sofrito, which I'll probably just freeze instead of breaking out the canning pot. Yesterday I made a quart of tomato jam; it is calling to me now, saying, "Scrambled eggs. With cheese. And chives..." Jeers to gardening making breakfast so late. Cheers to brunch instead!

    The main tomato crop isn't quite ripe yet. That, I will "put up" good and proper.
