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 …

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 …

Weeding With Guyrme

Weeding With Guyrme

Posted by Francesca

William Shakespeare wrote, “Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste,” and for anyone who gardens, you know exactly what that means.  Did you know that a single weed can produce as many as 250,000 seeds?  Some of you might say, “Why bother gardening?”  But that’s just a defeatist’s attitude.  We, Frenchies, like to weed …

We were driving with Uncle Carlos going past the tenant house when I remembered hearing something about washing the windows of that building.  Washing windows is loads of fun, especially when I sit back and watch Sharkey do all the work!

If you were able to watch Martha’s grilling special last Friday night, then you’ll know that hayrides were given around the farm.  We, dogs were asked to go along as the tour guides.  It was a lot of fun.
