Welcome to the Harvest Party!
Teddy and I are mighty glad to see you!
We’re going to work our buns off harvesting this fabulous crop of bacon but we’re ALSO going to have a whole lot of good old-fashioned fun……………..not to mention a GRAND bacon buffet cooked up from the fruits of our labor. Thanks to all of you who are stopping by – whether you’re harvesting with us today or just hanging out with us and watching us as we work. Pull up a chair and a lemonade and sit a spell!
My good friend Madi has a refreshment wheelbarrow she’ll be pushing around the grounds today so when she heads your way, just ask for something to wet your whistle!
There are some spots you can enjoy in the shade OR put out a blanket and lie in the sunshine if you’d rather…………………
Teddy and I will be cruising around the greenhouse area and the grounds giving Queen Nellie a ride in our wagon…………we don’t want her getting overly tired so we thought we’d be her “chariot” for the day! Make sure you say howdy-do when you see her……..after all, it’s not every day you get a visit from the Queen!!
Now, just a quick reminder for those of you who haven’t been with us for long, our bacon greenhouse was started when we received as a special gift, a package of magical bacon seeds from our good friends The Cat On My Head. I know what you’re saying – WHO EVER HEARD OF GROWING BACON FROM SEEDS? Well if they are MAGIC, they grow!
So we planted them and watched the plants get bigger and bigger until they finally budded and now they are full of bacon goodness and ready to harvest!
We should thank our greenhouse staff before we begin harvesting……………………thanks to the Greenhouse Snoopervisor and her crew!
Uhhhh…..thanks SuzieQ – those of you who follow the Tuesday Teasers know Suzie our Teaser Cheerleader and she wanted to be here today to cheer everyone on……………….in her own interesting way!
Now I’ll repeat this a couple of times just so everyone “gets” it, but we are having a GIVEAWAY today in honor of the harvest. All it takes to be in the running for one of THREE PRIZES is leave a comment on THIS BLOG and say you’d like to be part of the giveaway. You don’t have to be a harvester either…..if you’d like to be eligible for our giveaway JUST SAY SO. How the giveaway will work is that we will use an online randomizer and put all interested parties names in it and let it randomly pick THREE winners. We’ll announce the winners on Sunday’s blog post – AND send winners an email if we can to get your snail address! EASY PEASY!
Now – on with the show………………..We have a great slideshow below to show you the harvesters in their harvest finery…………..
Let’s ride over to the snackable area and see what delightful and delectable bacon treats the bacon chef has put together from the harvest so far! Everybody please help yourselves – try everything – you know you want to!
Shall we walk about and see who’s doing what? Oh there’s Madi and her wagon – let’s grab a drink and snack from her! I bet she’s getting a lot of “takers” for the snackables!
Part of what we’re going to do today is the passing of the crown to my little brother Teddy. You know now I’m an Angel at the Rainbow Bridge – and I love being an Angel and love being able to come here on a day pass (or if I’m lucky a weekend pass!) and visit with my Mom, Dad, Teddy and all of you. But I AM gone now………and the passing of the baton from ME to Teddy is just a natural part of things moving on. I decided that I should give Teddy the crown as KING of Bacon (or Baconia as we call it) and I will be the King Emeritus! Teddy is excited about taking over the position and I hope that all of you will be happy with him as KING. Here I am on the throne one last time……….
It’s been a pleasure being the King believe me………….and I’ll have just as much fun being King Emeritus…………but it’s now my EXTREME pleasure to introduce to you, our NEW King of Baconia, KING TEDDY!
Teddy will carry on the tradition of the Saturday BACON bonanza posts on the blog……………he loves the stuff as much as I ever did (and continue to do at the Bacon Buffet at the Rainbow Bridge!!!!!).
Just a reminder everyone – MAKE SURE and leave a comment on this blog post today and tell me if you want to be in the GIVEAWAY DRAWING…………….not everyone will WANT to be, but if you DO, let me know OK??
Shoko and Kali from Canadian Cats wanted each of you who came today to have a bacon bouquet from them. And I have a package of FRESH HOMEGROWN BACON from our Greenhouse for each of you to take home too as a little thanks for all your hard work!
I hope you’ve had some fun with us today – – – we thought we’d do some fireworks to end the day on a LOUD and HAPPY note……………..sit back and enjoy the show……….and thank you for coming. You are my friends and pals and always will be no matter if I’m HERE or at the BRIDGE……………..please remember that…………..always and forever.
A “Memory Badge” for today! Please take one!!
p.s. A “mini-disclaimer” !! If you sent us a photo and we didn’t use it, please don’t take it personally – this was a BEAR of a post to put together and “stuff happens”……..if we missed you please tell us and we’ll make sure and show your photo in a “follow up” post…….OK? Thanks for understanding……………..
Mom and Blog Staff……………
Make sure and tell me if you want to be in the GIVEAWAY!!
