We Frenchies were delighted to see the crew from the Today Show arrive at the farm yesterday.  They set up their equipment for a little one-on-one with Martha and Matt Lauer.  We’re not supposed to tell you what it’s about, but you can watch it on television on April 30th.

It’s always fun and interesting to witness the changes that take place on the farm.  We Frenchies heard something about renting the sod cutter again, so we decided to find out what was going on.  We were not disappointed!

Wednesday’s blog was all about the old vegetable garden and how it’s going to be swapped with, what has been, the cutting garden.  We Frenchies decided to cruise down to that garden and check on the progress.  This swapping of gardens is quite a production!

There are some big changes going on at the farm concerning the vegetable garden and the cutting garden.  The plan is to swap locations.  The cutting garden has never really done well where it’s located next to the chicken yard and the vegetable garden has its own issues with mole crickets and too much moss.  …
