Never Visit a Turkey Right Before Thanksgiving!

Never Visit a Turkey Right Before Thanksgiving!

Posted by F&S

You probably know by now that Martha raises a lot of chickens so that she can enjoy and share all of their delicious eggs.  She also has some Pomeranian geese and they make so much darn noise that we, Frenchies, just can’t figure out what the attraction is there.  Then there are the six heritage …

Planting Bulbs at the Farm

Planting Bulbs at the Farm

Posted by Francesca

There’s been a lot of talk at the farm about a really large bulb-planting project.  Shaun, the gardener, said that a shipment of bulbs arrived just the other day.  Sharkey and I wanted to see what exactly came so we went to the equipment barn to check things out.  Of course, being clever and industrious …

G.K. Steals the Show, Again!

G.K. Steals the Show, Again!

Posted by Sharkey

Perhaps you all watched Martha’s show when a bunch of us dogs got to wear Halloween costumes?  Well, I was expecting to be the star that day and I was very disappointed when G.K. stole the show.  All Martha wanted to do was focus on sewing his costume and I was just sitting there looking …

A New Doo For Meindert

A New Doo For Meindert

Posted by Sharkey

I really like to visit my pal, Meindert, one of Martha’s majestic Friesian horses.  When I was out helping blow leaves the other day, I got an idea that I really wanted to try out.  The Kawasaki was available so I got behind the wheel and drove down to the stable to pay Meindert a …

We don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here at the farm, leaves are falling like crazy.  Francesca and I were outside watching them float down to the ground when I decided to help with the leaf blowing.  Check this out and let me know if you like playing in piles of leaves …

G.K.'s First Halloween!

Once again, Halloween has come and gone, but this was the first time that G.K. got to experience the holiday!  We Frenchies, being older and wiser, had to explain things to him and he caught on fast enough.

When we were in Maine last week, it was the peak of the leaf season. The view from the terrace of Skylands was so amazing, but I really wanted to go for a drive in Acadia National Park to see more splendors. Here’s what we encountered.

Scaling Parkman Mountain in Maine

If you read Martha’s blog yesterday, then you know we went hiking while we were in Maine.  You know that Sharkey and I are avid hikers and we’re trying to get G.K. conditioned as a skilled trekker.  And after scaling Parkman Mountain in Acadia National Park, I think the boy has what it takes.

In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple

In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple

Posted by Sharkey

Today on Martha’s blog, she posted about making apple cider again.  Franny was really interested in the whole process and thought that we should make some cider of our own.  I told her that I would pick the apples and wash them.  I found my favorite tree and picked a bunch, however, washing them was …

Franny and I were soaking up the warmth of the sun the other day when I suddenly realized something major was happening.  We, Frenchies, have had such an amazing summer and we hoped it would go on forever.  No such luck!
