Make Way For a New Hoop House!

Posted by F&S

As you know, Martha loves her plants, especially her potted tropical plants.  She keeps acquiring more and more, but at the same time, the plants in her collection are growing larger and larger.  Guess what?  We’re running out of winter storage space!  It’s been decided that a new and larger heated hoop house will be …

Preparing for a Photo Shoot at the Greenhouse

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, were looking at Martha’s calendar and we noticed that there’s a photo shoot happening at the farm this week with Martha.  It said that it’s happening in the head house of the greenhouse and the housekeepers were instructed to make sure it was spic and span.  It’s hard to keep the head house …

Alas!  Summer is officially over as the first day of autumn was on Friday.  Yesterday you got to see some of our new fall wardrobe, which we will be happy to wear when the temperatures start dropping.  Well, we’re not quite ready to let go of summer and all of its beauty, so we decided …

You may remember that last Friday, we mentioned that Martha’s Pet’s line at PetSmart has introduced its first products for cats and we felt compelled to get something for our cat friends.  Vivaldi was so appreciative that he got on Martha’s computer and did a little online ordering for us!

Ryan told us Frenchies the other day that he was taking a trip to Hardscrabble Farms, which isn’t too far from our farm.  Seeing that it wasn’t such great weather, we asked him if we might tag along.  We love looking at trees, shrubs, and all kinds of plants.

On Wednesday’s blog, we told you about the South and North Ferries at the far eastern end of Long Island, which is a wonderful way to travel back and forth between the South and North Forks.  The north fork is Long Island’s agricultural center.  The vast majority of Long Island vineyards are here, as well …

As you know from reading yesterday’s Daily Wag, we were at our home in East Hampton, Long Island last weekend.  As its name suggests, Long Island is indeed long and at its eastern end, the island is split into the South Fork, where the Hamptons are, and the North Fork.  Martha wanted to visit someone …

You may recall that our last blog was about thinning and transplanting the strawberry vines and we got kind of dirty with that task.  On our way to wash up at the sink in the head house, we passed through the greenhouse and stopped to admire the plants growing there.

It’s been all over the news that Hurricane Irene is working her way up the Eastern coast of the US.  Weather experts are saying that several factors could align to make this approaching cyclone potentially disastrous.  We, Frenchies, are very concerned about this and we’re really hoping that Irene loses her punch.  For those of …
