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..

Autumn is approaching..

Okay they thought about it, talked about it, and then
Two brothers worked two days to get 'er done!

Our many thanks to brother Jeff.

 It looked like a simple project.. measured many times, reread the instructions. Another  measurement, trimmed  and leveled ....a couple trips to town for more nails, and such..

 Finally  finished.. and now its done.. the wind can blow  the snow can fall .. (oh Dear  did I say snow?.. not yet.) porch  flowers and basil are in full bloom. It sure looks nice don't ya think?

What a Festival!

We were so anxious to get to
 "Rootstalk" that we arrived 3  hours early... in fact first!  There were so  I heard over 1000 people in attendance * that's why we wanted to get there first*

After we set up our tents and campsite we explored the grounds. The forest was beautiful, the weather was perfect.  We  learned so much about plants, organic food and our planet. There were many classes to choose from to attend * no way could we attend them all.. Our days started at 7 am with Yoga  for those wanting to attend and went through out the day and into the forest and classrooms until 7/8 pm.  Music filled the main stage throughout the event and  there were organic vegetarian food  booths and craft vendors as well. ( somehow those pictures didn't turn out). But  bottom line we had a great time meeting  interesting people and sharing  in celebrating our planet, people and plants. I have a renewed appreciation for organics in healthy food and personal herbal body lotions & potions and will start using more of those in my daily life.
It was fun to spend 4 days in the forest with friends.

 We ended Saturday night with a grand finale Masquerade Ball.

Let the canning season begin

Well here  was my first preserving of Dilly beans. Only 5 pints  ready but I am sure more will be calling to be put up  this week. I planted heirloom tomatoes this year and I have been eating them as they ripen. They are so much better tasting than others I have planted. Basil is ready to be made into pesto too. The hens were out in the yard today feasting on  yard bugs & grubs. They are all laying now and I am getting 3-4 eggs a day. They are such good girls..So I let them out into the yard for an afternoon treat.

Sunset on Wickiup Reservoir

Back from a wonderful  few days at Wickiup Reservoir again. Spent a few days with friends and family. This was one of the gorgeous sunsets we were able to capture. Pretty huh? The water was so still not a ripple and weather couldn't have been better. I took other pictures but cannot get them from my husbands  folder to mine to post. So enjoy this one and Perhaps later I can figure out a way to post more here.

Camping trip this week

 Going back to sit in this same spot next Thursday.. It was gorgeous and no mosquitoes, no rain, no wind. Perfect temperature.. We will take the boat  this time and do some fishing. We are finally able to enjoy our summer..  This is our home away from home.. We are dry camping here.. That means no public facilities as in no running water or toilet, no developed campsite. With our camper we bring everything with us. We did have a big campfire pit and sat around it every evening roasting marshmallows...Yes, Camping life is good.........
