Checking out the Corn Patch

Posted by F&S

We have so much land at the farm and Martha thought it would be fun and delicious to plant a corn patch.  Half of the area was planted with sweet corn and the other half was seeded with popcorn.  We had high hopes for a bountiful harvest, however…..

Back by popular request… Some more celebrity/critter look-alikes for your viewing pleasure…
As I’ve said before, I personally find it an honor to be told I look like someone’s ‘fur kid.’ But for those who may not share my sentiments about such comparisons, please know that I mean no offense to anyone.
It’s all …

Today, on Martha’s blog Ryan McCallister, the Bedford gardener, is featured prominently showing how to propagate hydrangeas from cuttings.  We got to thinking that maybe we should feature Ryan on our blog, too, and pulled these photos from our archive, taken during one of Ryan’s visit to Skylands, our home in Maine.

Passing through the greenhouse the other day, we noticed that some of Martha’s beautiful orchids were blooming.  We Frenchies love so many types of flowers and especially orchids!

As promised, more details and never-before-seen photos from our exclusive interview with Minnow, Gold Medal winner in this year’s Summer Fur Games…

If you got the impression from yesterday’s blog that we weren’t having too much fun in Maine, that simply isn’t the case.  We were just stating the fact that not everything is fun and games and worldly dogs, as we are, experience lulls just like everybody else.  But, today’s blog makes up for everything because …

As you may know, we’ve been spending a good deal of time at Skylands, our home on Mt. Desert Island in Maine.  There are so many wonderful places and things to explore and one day, we wandered over to the garage building and had a look at a very special automobile.

Skylands is such a beautiful place to explore and we’d like to show you one of our favorite places way up on a hill. The ground is carpeted with moss and the path is covered with soft pine needles. We slipped out the door and went on a little adventure. …

Summer Fur Games- Minnow Takes Gold!

Posted by Pia

Our very own Minnow took gold this week in the curiously under publicized, Summer Fur Games. While refusing to do interviews with other media outlets, it’s no surprise that Minnow made an exception for her Daily Wag family!
Minnow’s dedication to her cause and her rather Zen assessment of teammate McKayla, with whom so …

Feeding our Friends, the Donkeys

Posted by Francesca

Martha asked us to do a chore at the farm the other day. She told us to feed Clive, Rufus, and Billie some nice apples and carrots.  I don’t mind doing chores, but it would be nice if Sharkey did some of the work, as well. It seems that she always manages to …
