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..

Look whats growing now.

I Have the perfect place to start my plants and grow herbs right in my kitchen.. with  basil, leaf lettuce parsley and thyme. How hand is that?
I have sunflower seeds  started in another window too border the garden when its ready to plant.. Hopefully tomorrow it will be tilled and ready for a few seeds.. My friend Leslie has started a few heirloom tomato plants and they are thriving in her greenhouse. I am anxious to get them planted ..(hoping the last frost has been here and gone.) We just picked up a pickup load of compost to add to the garden before its tilled.. In the mean time I am planning the layout and waiting for the neighbor to come till.   Here is are the latest pictures of the "Blue Sky critters... Buster  making sure the "girls" dont get more treats than he does..

and see how big the ducks are getting?  Soon They will be moving outside and hopefully they will love the pond. They are swimming in a large Rubber maid tote in their pen in the garage.. They are so cute. They have been named Blabber and Snooper by Clay...

This was the sunset last night from out  back deck.. A very nice sight to see at the end of a hard day, dont you think?
 Come back often to see  the progress  and growth here on Blue Sky Farm.. Enjoy your day.

I love the ducks names. It pool in the garage??? All you plants in the window look wonderful. I'm working so hard in my garden this year and I'm still behind. Even though it is work to me it is fun.

Have a great day!!!!

Temporarily the ducks live in the garage in a fenced off area with straw bales. I have placed a LARGE (pool) container for them to play in .. We will be moving them outside as the weather warms and into a kiddie pool until we lead them to the pond.

The pics are adorable. I have never started seeds inside, but need to figure out how because of the squirrels! I have planted sunflower seeds twice this year outside...aka feeding the squirrels! I have about four plants that survived and sprouted, and hope to transplant soon!
