A Plant Inspection

A Plant Inspection

Posted by Sharkey

After Hurricane Irene and all of the subsequent torrential rainfall, I thought it would be a good idea to inspect all of the tropical plants to see how they survived their quick move to the greenhouse.  I also wanted to see if they were put back where they belong outdoors.  Francesca is always up for …

More Flooding at the Farm

More Flooding at the Farm

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, cannot believe how much rain has been falling out of the sky.  Last week, we had Hurricane Irene and this week, it’s been raining nearly every day.  The night before last was torrential and we had some flooding at the farm.  Take a look at this!

G.K. Takes Off

I get to go for many walks around the farm every day, however, those walks are usually on a leash.  I also get to sit outside, but always tied to something.  I can’t help it if I think it’s fun to run.  I suppose I should learn to run and then go right back home, …

Admiring Martha's Orchids in the Greenhouse

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…

Preparing for Hurricane Irene

Preparing for Hurricane Irene

Posted by F&S

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 …

The Laundry Room in Maine is not Only for Laundry

The Laundry Room in Maine is not Only for Laundry

Posted by F&S

Yesterday, we Frenchies blogged about a very muddy hike that we went on.  You can imagine, no one was very pleased when we returned home.  Of course, we were banished to the laundry room where we were scrubbed clean of all that nice dark mud.  Once we were spick and span, we couldn’t help but …

Why do Cats Sleep so Much?

Why do Cats Sleep so Much?

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I always wonder why cats sleep so much.  Do you know it’s estimated that felines will sleep two-thirds of their lives away?  That seems like such a waste of time!  Now dogs, on the other hand, are much more active and lead far more interesting lives.  And we, dogs, only sleep, on average, …
