We Frenchies were patrolling the farm the other day when we came upon Arborists working in the woods.  Watching them prune trees damaged by Hurricane Sandy reminded us that there was another huge project taking place elsewhere on the farm.

Whenever Martha entertains, she likes to fill the house with beautiful potted houseplants.  There are many fine choices that Ryan cares for in the greenhouse.  It’s his job to move them from the greenhouse into the main house and back again.  We Frenchies, of course, like to be involved.

We Frenchies noticed that the beehives weren’t where they had been all summer long and we wondered where they’d been moved to.  We fired up the engine of the Kawasaki and took a little drive to see where they might be.

While we were out and about on the farm yesterday, we noticed a planting project taking place.  The guys looked a little short-handed so we Frenchies offered our services to get the job done.

Well, a cold front blew through the other day and it really feels like winter now!  We Frenchies donned our warm winter coats before venturing outdoors to see how the guys were progressing with all of their chores.  We found Fernando and Wilmer working away in the shade garden.

We Frenchies came across some awesome donkey sayings and, of course, we just had to share them with our donk friends, Clive, Rufus, and Billie.  We thought they were pretty funny, but we might have touched a nerve or two.

We Frenchies put on some warm coats and went outdoors to play and explore.  We noticed that the bamboo framework for all of the bamboo covers for boxwood and other shrubs was in the process of being constructed.  What a job!

On yesterday’s blog, we Frenchies told you all about composting in the vegetable greenhouse, which helps make things grow so much better.  Today, we’re going to talk about what’s already growing and what’s being planted.

Now that the growing season is over and our outdoor vegetable garden has been cleaned out, it’s time to move the operation indoors.  We are very fortunate at the farm that Martha had a special greenhouse built for growing vegetables all winter long.  Ryan and Wilmer have been busy getting things ready for planting.
