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..

Tent Camping again & Sunflower surprise at home

Clay & I went back to Cresent Lake for a few days this week. What a great place to camp. We set up our tent and slept soundly and very comfortably on our air mattress. 

You can see how roomy our tent was.
  I had always cooked on a campstove and decided to give open firepit cooking a go.. Set up a tiered rock & coal foundation and then cooked potatoes in foil (placed in the coals and corn on the cob in husks on a grill.) Then grilled a   juicy steak.. It was yummy! There is nothing like campfire cooking.

When we got home I was shocked to see how big my sunflowers had grown.  The  tomatoes are  full of plenty small green fruit, I do hope they ripen before frost....we have already harvested all the beets, many peppers & and few potatoes...

I am sure the "birdies will love the seeds when we harvest this beauty, don't you?
