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

G.K. Takes Off

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

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, …

Thinning and Transplanting the Strawberries

Thinning and Transplanting the Strawberries

Posted by F&S

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!

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 …

Filling in for Susie While She's Away on Vacation

Posted by F&S

Susie, Martha’s executive assistant at the farm in Bedford, is away on vacation.  Poor Susie!  She sure picked the wrong week to be on Long Island, because we heard that they received record amounts of rainfall!  Oh well!  Not much you can do about the weather.  Anyway, we, Frenchies, decided to help out and go …

Dealing Out The Dog Pack Oracle Cards

Dealing Out The Dog Pack Oracle Cards

Posted by Sharkey

It’s been raining a lot lately and Francesca and I are scrambling to find indoor activities to keep us busy.  Looking around the house, I came upon an unusual deck of cards called, “The Dog Pack Oracle Cards.”  Apparently, you use them much the same way as Tarot cards.  Going through the deck, we discovered …

From Blue to Cloudy

From Blue to Cloudy

Posted by F&S

The other day, we Frenchies, were enjoying a clear blue sky, but as the day progressed, so did the clouds.  So, our talk turned from talking about the blue sky to talking about the clouds in the sky.
