Dear family & friends,
Well, here I am with my girls.  Molly is so sweet!  But so FULL of energy!  We have decided not to put up our usual big Christmas Tree this year because I would be in constant motion trying to keep her and the tree safe!  Billie doesn't mind and Molly doesn't care as long as she has a house full of toys and people adoring her.  Today I am baking pies and keeping a constant watch on Molly.  Wish me luck!
Have a good day,

Meet Molly

Meet Molly our new Flat Coat Retriever puppy.  She is just 8 weeks old in this picture.  Today is her second full day on the farm.  She enjoys walking and tumbling through the apple orchard where there are still dandelions to play with.

Mollie's big sister, Billie is getting use to her new little sister.  Both Billie and Mollie have Farm Duty responsibilities.  Billie is our official Dog Bell.  She announces all visitors.  Mollie will learn to be on the lookout for roaming deer and to bark to keep them away from our perimeter fencing.

November 2009

November is proving to be a very wet month!  This month our challenges are prepping our garden space for our new greenhouse.   We are looking forward to getting a head start to growing many of our preferred vegetables and flowers.
