G.K.'s Countdown to Westminster!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

As you all know, I am one of the lucky ones who was invited to compete in the 136th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  In preparation, I am presently staying with my breeder, Karen Tracy and I am in training with my handler, Jan Kolnik.  The …

Spring Chores During Winter - Go Figure!

Spring Chores During Winter - Go Figure!

Posted by F&S

We keep talking about what a mild winter it’s been.  Driving around the farm the other day, we observed a lot of action going on in the vegetable garden.  I guess if it’s going to be unseasonably warm, you might as well take advantage of the situation!

Composting in Winter

Composting in Winter

Posted by F&S

On our last blog posting, we showed you all of the spring-flowering bulbs that have been sprouting with the warm temperatures we’ve been having. As predicted, the temperatures have plummeted and it’s now really quite frigid outside. Good think Ryan, Wilmer, and the rest of the crew have been busy spreading composted mulch …

Have You Seen The Martha Stewart Orchid?

Have You Seen The Martha Stewart Orchid?

Posted by Sharkey

A beautiful and fragrant orchid appeared suddenly in the kitchen the other day and as I was admiring it, it dawned on me that I had seen it before.  I had a feeling that it was on one of Martha’s blogs from years ago and sure enough, after a little investigation, that’s where it had …

Concern for the Black Welsh Mountain Sheep

With the temperatures finally plunging we, Frenchies, get very concerned about all of our farm friends.  We have a nice selection of winter coats and the horses and donkeys have winter coats, too.  But, what about the Black Welsh Mountain Sheep?

Posted by Sharkey

I’ve been seeing all of the holiday cards arriving in the mail every day and I got to thinking that Francesca and I should make a holiday card of our own.  I took a look up in the craft room and realized that all the materials we would need are there.  It really doesn’t take …

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, …

Feeling Weary

Feeling Weary

Posted by F&S

Being French Bulldogs that belong to Martha Stewart, we are naturally very driven and, as you know, incredibly hard workers.  We lead fascinating lives and we love telling you all about it in this blog.  But, we confess, sometimes we just feel weary.  Sorry if this posting causes you to yawn.

Clive, Rufus, and Billy as Seen on TV

Clive, Rufus, and Billy as Seen on TV

Posted by F&S

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 …
