In this Valentine's Day episode, the hosts interview their husbands and discuss various topics related to parenting and farming. They talk about the challenges and joys of parenting, the first impressions they had of each other, and the most appropriate Valentine's Day presents for long-term relationships. They also discuss what they would do differently on the farm if they won the lottery. Overall, the episode provides insights into the hosts' personal lives and experiences as parents and farmers. The conversation covers various topics including changes in Valentine's Day celebrations, excessive treats and gifts, dealing with fruit flies, challenges of farming, and the return of the husbands to the podcast.


  • Parenting can be challenging, but it also brings joy and fulfillment.
  • First impressions can be important, but they don't always determine the course of a relationship.
  • Valentine's Day presents should be thoughtful and considerate of the recipient's interests and preferences.
  • Winning the lottery can provide opportunities to improve and expand farming operations.
  • Personal connections and liking your partner are important factors in a successful and fulfilling relationship. Valentine's Day celebrations have become more elaborate and involve excessive treats and gifts.
  • Fruit flies can be a nuisance during the winter months, even when there is no fruit present.
  • Farming can be challenging, especially when it comes to managing livestock and building appropriate facilities.
  • The husbands' return to the podcast brings a lighthearted and humorous dynamic to the conversation.
