A Visit to Krupski Farms

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 …

This past weekend, we were in East Hampton with Martha and we always like to get out and explore.  The Atlantic Ocean is just a block away and we love walking on the beach.  Take a look at what we found.

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.

We were wandering around the farm yesterday, when we came upon Ryan and Wilmer in the strawberry patch.  They were busy digging up and thinning out the strawberry plants, which had become much too crowded.  Of course, we jumped right in and helped with the task.

We Frenchies always like to be helpful and we especially like to teach our blog readers new things.  Last week, before the hurricane, we helped to harvest the onions and garlic in the vegetable garden.  Take a look!

Martha bought a couple of little covered pails for the kitchen and we, Frenchies, were wondering what they were for.  Taking off the lid revealed the answer and we got to thinking…
