Watch This: The Fabulous Beekman Boys

I have no idea what Planet Green is, but it's apparently a TV channel that I get that has my new favorite show:  The Fabulous Beekman Boys.  It is Hil. Arious.  Two city boys, Josh Kilmer-Purcell, a writer and former drag queen, and Dr. Brent Ridge, a former VP at Martha Stewart Omnimedia bought a mansion in upstate New York, and they've since decided to farm.  Hilarity ensues.  Dr. Ridge is total type A, and admits everything they know about farming, they learned from their employee Farmer John and the internet (at one point, the llama seems sick and Josh is googling to determine if they fed the llama something poisonous.)  Dr. Ridge wants the tractors to line up and the pigs clean for a party.  He's my kind of guy.

Not enough screen time is given to Farmer John.  I wish they had pictures of this guy on their web page that I could show you but he's this big, hulking guy who has a teeny girly voice, and begins crying when thinking about his goat herd, and how he wouldn't be able to keep them without Josh and Brent.

The only problem about this show is Husband spent weeks building this raised garden in the backyard and constantly wants me to go to a place called The Natural Gardner.  The last thing I need is for him to think we need to get a country house or farm, and this show isn't helping that situation.
