What I did on my Summer Vacation
Garden jpeg Late in the spring we planted our vegetable garden: Tomatoes, zucchini, pickling cucumbers, eggplant, carrots and peppers.
Group on the river jpg While my garden was growing, we went kayaking. We like to kayak with our friends. Here we are on the Wood River.

L double kayak jpg J. and I really enjoyed our paddling around the harbors, rivers and estuaries.

But in the meantime . . .

worm jpg Oh dear! While I was out paddling, a very large Horned tomato WORM, with lots of white wasp eggs all over it, visited my garden. Bad worm! Bad!
Ashley at easel jpg I visited with my dear friend, author/illustrator Ashley Bryan, on Little Cranberry Island off the coast of Maine. Ashley likes to set up his easel and paint the summer flowers that bloom all over the island. Look for Let it Shine, Ashley’s new book. It shines!
Ari and pickles jpeg Remember those pickling cucumbers that I planted? This is my friend, Ari. She is making dill pickles. We also made bread and butter pickles.
Brandywine tomato jpg At last! The first Brandywine tomato from our garden.
