Today on Martha’s blog, there are photos of Gyurme and Ryan planting bulbs in the terrace garden.  This is only partly true.  While the guys were taking one of their extra-long coffee breaks, we Frenchies did most of the work.

This past weekend, we Frenchies and G.K. went to Brooklyn Bridge Park with Uncle Carlos.  This is where the fantastic Jane’s Carousel is located.  If you love riding on carousels, as we do, this one can’t be beat!

Our Tree Survey Continues

On yesterday’s blog, we showed you one of the mighty trees that fell at the farm during Hurricane Sandy.  As we continued our drive, we came upon so much more damage.  One area really took a  beating and after seeing it, we decided to stop looking.  It’s heartbreaking to see so much destruction.

If you are a reader of The Martha Blog, you probably know that more than 100 stately trees were blown over at the farm when Hurricane Sandy visited our area.  We Frenchies wanted to see some of this damage for ourselves, so we ventured out into the woods to have a look.

Martha had a dinner party last night and there was a lot to do in preparation.  Chef Pierre came to cook the food and Laura Acuna set a beautiful table.  Of course, some of the silver needed polishing and we Frenchies always like to help with that chore.

Do You Know a Crow?

We Frenchies have many friends at the farm, including a large number of crows.  These big black birds gather in communal groups, called roosts, in the autumn and winter and they are seen sleeping together perched in trees.  Needless to say, the roost can make quite a racket with such large numbers.  Anyway, we have …

We don’t know about where you live, but here in the northeast, we are in full swing of autumn.  Of course, that means chilly weather and lots of leaves dropping.  Leaves play an important role at the farm, as they are gathered up for compost, which is always in high demand around here.  But leaves …
