Composting in Winter

Posted by F&S

On our last blog posting, we showed you all of the spring-flowering bulbs that have been sprouting with the warm temperatures we’ve been having.

Feeling Weary

Posted by F&S

Being French Bulldogs that belong to Martha Stewart, we are naturally very driven and, as you know, incredibly hard workers.  We lead fascinating lives and we love telling you all about it in this blog.  But, we confess, sometimes we just feel weary.  Sorry if this posting causes you to yawn.

Helping With the Burlap Project

Posted by F&S

The crew at the farm has been working so hard lately cleaning up storm damage, planting new trees, and preparing for winter.  As you probably know, Martha likes to cover all the boxwood shrubs with burlap to protect them from the winter elements.  This is a huge job, as more and more boxwood keep getting …

At long last, the new greenhouse for storing all of the tropical plants during the cold months has been completed.  It was a lot of work building it and even more work moving all of the plants into it.  Ryan and Wilmer have it nicely organized and they can now focus on caring for the …
