How to Lead a Farm Takeover

We're Amanda and Tim, we're the "kids", and we took care of the farm this weekend.

We've hung around here a bunch!

Sorry, pun, couldn't resist!

Most of the time, we venture up during holidays, pizza oven parties, go-kart races, and one notable wedding 
(...that was us, last summer, getting married and stuff).

So when it comes to things like hanging with Minerva, 
we're expert at spending quality, rainy time in the garden 
with our closest inanimate human. 

We made a few attempts at garden quality control too... i.e., an excuse to eat spring rain garden fresh produce (side note: that could be a laundry detergent scent).

And, if you want to successfully play farmer for a weekend, 
the ability to summon animals is super helpful. 

Moll-Cat was not so excited about the summoning...

It helps to establish authority with the animals.
Rather, the animals will play along with your displays of discipline, 
knowing you aren't the real deal, plotting their escape at your expense. 

Alternatively, just show them love.
And make sure the gates are locked!!!

We had quite the time holding down the fort for the weekend.
Don't worry. Bev will be back tomorrow! 

Until next time...


  1. I'm sure y'all did a fine job. The animals seem no worse for wear. ;0D Hope you had a good time!

  2. How fun, great post. I can see you are having fun and the animals are happy to see you.

  3. Cute post. You didn't have very good weather! I'm sure you did a fine job and you were much appreciated! that's the biggest Asparagus I have ever seen! I'm sure you will be back for another farm take over. Hope so. Have a good week.

  4. You "kids" have the greatest smiles! The Tim and Minerva photo is my favorite. Sort of American Gothic but .......sweeter??

  5. that's a job i wouldn't mind taking on! looks like you had lots of fun!

  6. "The Summoning" -- could be the name of a bad horror film. The cat would be the lynch-pin, I'm sure.

  7. How nice of you "kids" to take care, not only of the farm, but also of the blog, sharing with the BHA fans - such good fun!
