We Found the Garlic and Onions!

Posted by Francesca

While we were in Maine, the garlic and onions were harvested at the farm in Bedford.  I recalled this blog that I posted in August of 2009.
The other day, Martha and Shaun, the gardener, were discussing the fact that the onions and garlic needed to be harvested. Shaun had planted many, many …

As you know, we Frenchies have been away at Skylands, but we were told that the catmint was being harvested in the Bedford garden.  We remembered this blog posting from 2009 and decided to share it again.  Silly, silly cats!
Sharkey and I witnessed some strange behavior in the garden yesterday causing me to do …

Surprise!  It’s not F & S, but Vivaldi!  Martha is in Maine and took Francesca, Sharkey, and G.K. with her, so I decided to have a little fun and post today’s blog.  Won’t they be surprised when they get around to reading this!  Of course, that is if they can pull themselves away from all …

Bath Time for Frenchies!

Bath Time for Frenchies!

The other day, Franny took off after a pesky squirrel and went tearing through a paddock.  She must have run into a pile of manure because she came home stinking to high heaven.  Laura Acuna took one whiff and immediately filled a basin with warm water and plopped Francesca into it.

Exploring Where the Pumpkins Grow

Exploring Where the Pumpkins Grow

Posted by F&S

It was a bit cooler the other day, so we Frenchies, went for a stroll around the farm.  We had heard that there was a new pumpkin patch growing, but we didn’t quite know where.  We finally stumbled upon it behind the greenhouse.  It’s amazing!

This past July was reportedly the hottest month of ANY in history since 1895 in the Continental U.S.! While this summer’s record breaking temps might have many a Daily Wagger peacefully sipping a mint Julep… we must not forget how critical it is to protect our fellow creatures amidst this life-threatening heat. I think it’s …

We Frenchies realized we hadn’t seen our friends, the donks, for quite a while, so we set out to find them and catch up on all the latest gossip.  You can imagine our surprise when we saw that some big changes had been made to the donkey paddock.

Hiking Around Little Long Pond

Hiking Around Little Long Pond

Posted by F&S

While we were in Maine last week, we went for a hike around Little Long Pond, which is just a short distance from quaint Seal Harbor village.  This pond is so peaceful and the view of Acadia National Park in the distance is spectacular.  We Frenchies really like to dive into nature, so to speak.
