What Should we do About Tang on the Stove?

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and were very surprised the other day whey we spotted that pesky Tang scaling the stove in the kitchen.  We couldn’t imagine what she was up to or why she wanted to be there.  Have a look at these cat acrobatics.

Eliza's Treats

As many of you know, Martha is a very charitable person, and recently, she donated a lunch with her and a tour of her offices for an auction event to help raise money for breast cancer.  The winner of that prize was Eliza Gray, a lovely thirteen-year-old Martha fan.  I think that Eliza is also …

The Art of Extracting Honey

Well, we finally got around to extracting the honey from the beehives.  Carlos seemed to bee a bit frazzled, so I offered to be of assistance.  The whole process is rather time consuming.  The honey tastes really, really good – very herbal and light.  Thank you honeybees for providing again.

Too Much Snow For Sharkey!

Posted by F&S

As Martha wrote about on her blog today, we were hit hard with another snowstorm.  We Frenchies wanted to go outside and explore, so we donned our beautiful new white snow parkas.  Of course, we had no idea how deep the snow was and things got a little dicey.

Being celebrity dogs, we, of course, have a wonderful and loyal following.  And sometimes, we even get the greatest gifts from our fans.  We receive beautiful paintings, wall clocks, toys, snacks, and most recently, dishes.  But, Sharkey had a little bone to pick with our latest gift.

A few days ago, after our last snowstorm, Martha wanted to drive around the farm and take photos for her blog.  Since we had the power of the Kawasaki and its excellent four-wheel drive, I asked Martha to take me to visit Sasa, the new Friesian on the farm.  He’s a really great guy and …

Hey, everyone, G.K. here!  I’ve been reading all of your comments and have taken notice that I have been missed.  Well, it’s a little hard stealing the limelight from Francesca and Sharkey, but, sometimes, like today, I succeed.  I thought you’d like to know a bit of history about Chow Chows.  Did you know that …

G.K. and I were outside the other day when it started to snow again!  This has been quite a winter, so far.  I was concerned about the donkeys out there in their paddock so G.K. and I trekked out through the snow to pay them a visit.

Looking for Beauty on a Dismal Day

Posted by Sharkey

As you may have heard, we’ve had quite a bit of snow here at the farm.  Yesterday, however, was quite a different story because it was raining all day on top of all that snow, making it just pain dismal.  Good thing we Frenchies, don’t need an excuse to curl up and take a nap.  …

The Art of Snipping Kindling

The farm crew has been really busy with all of their winter chores and one of them is winter pruning.  As you know, we have several apple trees and it’s really important to cut back last year’s new growth in order to stimulate the fruit-bearing limbs.  Pruning the apple trees means you have lots of …
