Edible Flowers at the Farm

Posted by F&S

As you know, we Frenchies are curious about so many things and just the other day, we started a discussion about edible flowers.  Not all flowers are edible, so it’s important to be certain which ones are, as some flowers can be toxic.  However, at the farm, there are many edible flowers growing in the …

What's Lurking in That Tree?

On Friday, I blogged about how I drove the Kawasaki around the farm checking on all of the sprinklers watering the gardens.  After my inspection, I continued my drive when I spotted something quite large lurking in a tree.  I was rather surprised by what I found.

The Importance of Water

The Importance of Water

Despite the hot weather, I’ve been feeling quite energetic these days.  Of course, I’ve been drinking a lot of water to keep myself hydrated, which got me thinking about all of the plants out in the gardens and wondered if they were getting enough water?

It’s becoming berry season at the farm and that usually means a bountiful harvest.  We Frenchies noticed that the strawberries, the first berries to ripen, were ready to be picked.  Strawberries are so pretty and sweet smelling and really, who can resist?

Before I hurt my dewclaw and needed surgery, Francesca and I were making our usual rounds of the farm, looking for anything new and different.  It was difficult for Franny because she had classic tunnel vision due to wearing the cone-shaped color, so I guided her around.  It’s good to help each other out.

You may know that sitting on the stone wall overlooking the farm is one of our favorite vantage points.  The view is great and it’s fun watching the world go by.  We, Frenchies, were out there basking the other day when we discovered that our stone wall was getting a beautification treatment.

Truffles, those mushrooms that grow underground, are one of Martha’s favorite delicacies.  In fact, she wants to plant a grove of the special trees that truffles grow beneath, so that she will have her own supply.  Last week, she asked Franklin Garland, of Garland Truffles, to come to the farm to help her decide where …

I believe that we, Frenchies, failed to mention that our brother, Ghenghis Khan, went off to yet, another dog show.  He’s been to so many and has won so many that we’ve lost count.  Anyway, this last time, darling G.K. actually wrote a blog letter to us, which we now post for your enjoyment.

After so much fun and so many adventures touring the streets of New York City, we, Frenchies, thought it would be a good idea to pop into the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia space in the landmark Starrett Lehigh building.  It’s always inspirational visiting the offices.
