Eliza's Treats

Posted by Francesca

As many of you know, Martha is a very charitable person, and recently, she donated a lunch with her and a tour of her offices for an auction event to help raise money for breast cancer.  The winner of that prize was Eliza Gray, a lovely thirteen-year-old Martha fan.  I think that Eliza is also …

The Art of Extracting Honey

The Art of Extracting Honey

Posted by Sharkey

Well, we finally got around to extracting the honey from the beehives.  Carlos seemed to bee a bit frazzled, so I offered to be of assistance.  The whole process is rather time consuming.  The honey tastes really, really good – very herbal and light.  Thank you honeybees for providing again.

Hey, everyone, G.K. here!  I’ve been reading all of your comments and have taken notice that I have been missed.  Well, it’s a little hard stealing the limelight from Francesca and Sharkey, but, sometimes, like today, I succeed.  I thought you’d like to know a bit of history about Chow Chows.  Did you know that …

Looking for Beauty on a Dismal Day

Posted by Sharkey

As you may have heard, we’ve had quite a bit of snow here at the farm.  Yesterday, however, was quite a different story because it was raining all day on top of all that snow, making it just pain dismal.  Good thing we Frenchies, don’t need an excuse to curl up and take a nap.  …

What We Found With Our Toys

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I wanted to play outside the other day, but it was just too darn cold, so we started looking for indoor options.  Martha keeps toys for us all around the house and I wanted to play with some that were in a little storage cube.  Of course, things don’t always go according to …

A Welcome Home Soup for Martha

If you’ve been following Martha on Twitter, you know that she has been travelling in Columbia and also in Florida.  Finally, she’s coming home and told us that she is craving a homemade vegetable soup.  We, Frenchies, thought it would be nice if that soup was ready and waiting for her, so we got busy.

Last week, we, Frenchies, explained that there was a memory card in our camera that we kind of forgot about.  It had our squirrel tree all decorated for the holidays, which we blogged about last week.  It also had these amazing shots of us helping with some garden chores.  We share those with you now.

Woops!  With all of the holiday excitement, followed by the blizzard, we, Frenchies, forgot these photos were on the memory card in our camera.  We meant to post them before Christmas, but better late, than never, right?

Hudson Hounds

Hudson Hounds

Posted by Pia

While the recent east coast snow storm derailed my plan to go west for New Year’s, it instead led me to explore a super cool dog-friendly town called Hudson, N.Y.!
So the next time any of you find yourselves along the beautiful Hudson river, be sure and check out this groovy little town. …
