On Martha’s blog today, she has shared many beautiful photos of our holiday décor at the farm.  Where we agree that everything is spectacular, a few very special ornaments were overlooked.

We, Frenchies, went to the vegetable garden to see if there was anything left to pick.  We’ve had some pretty heavy frosts at the farm, so we weren’t exactly holding out breath.  After rooting around a bit, we realized that someone had already beaten us to it!

Exploring the Stable Kitchen

Exploring the Stable Kitchen

Posted by F&S

Not too many people know about the kitchen located in the stable at the farm.  The stable is such a beautiful building and Martha likes to use it from time to time for entertaining and having a kitchen right there certainly helps.  The door to the kitchen is always closed, keeping out the barn dust, …

Today is December 13th, which makes it Francesca’s birthday.  Good thing I remembered because last year I forgot and I haven’t heard the end of it ever since!  This year, I even got creative in the kitchen and made a special treat.

We, Frenchies, wanted to catch Martha’s TV show the other day, so we turned it on in the kitchen.  Much to our amazement, we saw three reindeer enter the set, pulling a big gift sled!  But, upon further inspection, we realized they weren’t reindeer at all.

Helping With the Burlap Project

Posted by F&S

The crew at the farm has been working so hard lately cleaning up storm damage, planting new trees, and preparing for winter.  As you probably know, Martha likes to cover all the boxwood shrubs with burlap to protect them from the winter elements.  This is a huge job, as more and more boxwood keep getting …
