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..

Our Mary Jane Farmgirls Garden

Gail & I have been busy working on our MJF "Charming Chicks Chapter Garden" You may have to enlarge the picture to see the palnts growing.

We go there every Wednesday to plant & weed & eventually Harvest. We will share the labors with our chapter members who participate in the maintenance and the land owner who generously has allowed us to use his garden space , He will water it and also share his harvest of strawberries. So far this is what we have done in two weeks time. What fabulous soil & these plants love it. We have planted all organic & heirloon seeds & plants of Corn ,Green beans, Squash, Carrots, Beets, two different lettuce varieties, Chard, Pumpkins, Tomatoes, Green Peppers, Jalapino Peppers, Hungarian Wax peppers and Brocolli.

It have avereraged one and 1/2 hours of our time and about $50 in cash. We think this is a great project to be involved in. The excess harvest will be donated to a local food bank after we share among our families. We plan to make salsa as a group project and I will teach a canning & jelly class.
