I'm pleased by my experiments with kombucha, and (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lady_anemone) am reading Wild Fermentation. Some of this stuff seems eminently doable, like sauerkraut, and some basically demands that I try it again, like yogurt.

I'm contemplating a little canning session on Wednesday - with the Small Girl present, so that'll complicate things a bit. Join me! There will be some participants here 12-4; I have no idea if I'll go longer than that, but I have no evening plans yet, so it could. Is it a pickling bee? Sure, if enough of you show up. I'm hoping to can a bunch of crookneck squash (pickled with onions and Indian spices) that I gleaned from my grandfather's garden yesterday. If I'm really ambitious, beets too, but I doubt I'm that ambitious.

Today, I made pesto from garlic and basil harvested from my backyard. It was awesome. I'm disproportionately proud of the garlic, because I planted ten cloves, expected nothing, and got ten bulbs! an unparalleled first-year success for me.

Completely unrelatedly, my cell phone has lately been deluged by telemarketers, primarily warning me that my warranty is about to expire. I'm sure my number got into someone's database. Isn't this illegal, to telemarket to my cellphone? How can I get this stopped?
