There are some big changes going on at the farm concerning the vegetable garden and the cutting garden.  The plan is to swap locations.  The cutting garden has never really done well where it’s located next to the chicken yard and the vegetable garden has its own issues with mole crickets and too much moss.  …

It’s very important that dogs be groomed on a regular basis, to ensure that the pet is healthy and comfortable.  We Frenchies are groomed in the basement laundry room, but GK, who has thick chow fur, requires a professional to do the job.  Yesterday, GK had an appointment at Stonybrook Pet Spa in Harrison, New …

Francesca and Sharkey Tour The Farm

I, Ghenghis Khan, was asked to make a delivery the other day to the tropical greenhouse.  I hadn’t been inside for quite some time, so I decided to have a look around.  Because this structure is for tropical plants, the temperature and humidity levels are quite toasty and it feels like a jungle.
