We were making the rounds with Ryan, the gardener, the other day.  He took us into the hoophouse where he keeps Martha’s potted citrus trees for the winter.  I happened to notice that the clivia plants were blooming.  Clivia are such happy looking flowers!

We Frenchies heard that Martha needed some fresh vegetables to make her special green juice that she drinks most mornings.  We’re very fortunate here at the farm because there’s a vegetable greenhouse for growing crops all through the cold months.

Today I have a treat for you!  Francesca is back!  Although frustrating, she needs to be on a leash so that she doesn’t take off and reinjure herself.  You know, squirrels are very tempting to us, Frenchies, and barking up a tree isn’t the best think for her neck.

There’s been a lot of pruning being done at the farm.  This is the time of year when apple and pear trees really benefit from a proper pruning.  Danny, from SavATree, has been caring for Martha’s trees for many years and I was happy to see him the other day.  I was also happy to …

It dawned on me the other day that I haven’t seen much of the farm crew.  I know they’ve been busy because I hear all sorts of power equipment, but I just didn’t know what they’ve been busy doing.  G.K. and I went out to investigate.
