Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Home Garden Planted


Today Clay & I finished planting our home garden.
It is going to really be nice when everything blooms & produces vegetables for fall harvest.
Now planted corn, yellow wax beans, green peppers, aneheim peppers, jalapino peppers, tomatoes, beets, peas, potatoes, artichokes, asparagus, and rhubarb.
The two trees in front of the garden on the lawn are a cherry with 4 varieties and a golden delicious apple. We also have a MacKintosh apple tree, blueberries, blackberries, marion berries, strawberries, raspberries and watermelon and sunflowers. It was a perfect day to finish planting but just as we completed the temporary fence to keep our chickens out the wind came up and it has turned a bit chilly. Temperatures are to remain inthe low 70's for the remainder of the week with lows inthe 40's. Tomorrow I will join my friend Gail at the Charming Chicks Co-op garden for our routine check of plants and any weeding needed. I sure hope the wind doesn't blow out there. All in all a very productive day for the Severeides'at Blue Sky Farm.
