Veggie Days

What? It's August, and I haven't blogged about my vegetable garden since March? Well, here we go then:

First, there were radishes and baby spinach.

Then, snap peas, snow peas, and parsley.

Mountains, and I do mean mountains, of zucchini.

Lettuce and Italian broad beans.

Pecks o' purple peppers!

Zucchini, a.k.a. "baseball bat."

A plethora; and attack of the killer tomatoes begins.

And more tomatoes. Lots of tomatoes. Lots and lots of tomatoes...

Next up: Kale Invasion.

Thrilled to say I've been accepted to this year's Rutgers One-on-One Plus conference! Last year was my first time going, and it was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend applying to anyone who is serious about writing and illustrating for children. (I blogged about last year's conference here.) More notes to come...

Watched old home movies last night. So many memories... I laughed and cried and laughed again. Where does the time go?

3 O'Clock in the Morning...

...can be a very productive time for your brain. Even if you're tossing and turning and trying to sleep. The trick is to write it all down at 6 o'clock in the morning when you get up. With coffee, preferably.
