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..

Seeds Planted.....

I certainly hope the sunflowers grow.. I love the way they look standing so tall in the garden. I planted 12 started plants and some smaller variety. I will by trying to keep the birds & my lovely chickens away from those delecate sprouts. (At least until they mature to hold their own..) I had a chat with the "girls" told them I will harvest the big heads in the fall for them.But they gotta let themgrow... Do you think they understand? Not, but I can hope... We also planted ( scatter planted) over 50,000 seeds of wild flowers again hoping some will make it and we will be surprised to see their pretty faces in a couple months.... Hurry up sunshine, Rain showers in the forcast all week..but that can mean little rain here actually.. just as long as the nights stay above freezing.. The back veggie garden is not even close to planting and my potato seeds are bursting through the box they are stored in... Hope we can get them in the ground sometime next week... Somebody please chat with Mother Nature...I need some help here...
