EXTRA EXTRA Read all about it!!!
Have you ever wanted to listen to the podcast, but you are unable to do so? Do you want to know what's happening in the world of Farmville? Do you need a quick reference for your quests, leaderboards, farmstands and more?  Well do we have a treat for you!! Here it is this week's EXCITING new addition of The Dirt Farmer LIVE! Show Summary!  If you enjoy reading it, please remember to share with your fellow farmers.

***Our Own Dirt Farmer Speed test***

We have a new thingy for you on our website, at  It's great for FV but useful for everyday computing and internet shenanigans.  It's a SPEED TEST, your internet provider probably charges you based on the speed of your internet.  YOU really need to check to be sure you are getting what you are paying for.  Also, if your SPEED goes down at 2 am, that may mean your teenager is watching NETFLIX instead of sleeping.  Be sure to BOOKMARK the Dirt Farmer's SPEED TEST Link and use it as often as needed.

***Random Facebook News***
Facebook made a change to it's TERMS OF SERVICE this past week.  Basically trying to cover it's own ass from lawsuits. As we all know, when you act a fool on Facebook anyone can see it, even your boss or possibly potential employers.  And more and more people are getting in trouble in real life for acting a fool on Facebook.  So Facebook has made it a violation for anyone to use your "actin' a fool" on Facebook to discriminate against you in real life, For all the good that'll do.  It seems to be just a cheap way to cover their butts from being sued by the ACLU.  So basically,Don't ACT A FOOL on Facebook!

***Bob’s Berry Farm Update***

The ever popular Bob’s Berry Farm will soon be updated with a new Summer Outdoor Activity Theme. Currently coded to release on April 1st, it will be available until May 15 th . Just like in the past, the FarmVille Studio appears to be treating us to a mixture of old and new items, including a few decorations. There are a couple of colorful trees and a variety of animals in this chapter of Bob’s Berry Farm. There are some pretty nice items for all of us to collect, but no crops for us to master.
We have a Gardening Duck...a Summer Alligator...Summer Friendship Tree...Summer Fun Duck...Summer Horse...Summer Lolli Tree...Summer Petals Puppies in a basket...Summer Pool Nap gnome...Summer Snorkel Cow...Summer Style Goat...Summer Style Pegasus...Summer Sun Pig...Summer Sunset Sheep...Sunshine Giraffe...Vacation Frog...and finally a Vacation Van

***Water VS Earth Vote Event***

We have a brand spankin new vote feature heading your way on Wednesday March 29th.  This one is simply the Water VS Earth Voting Event.  Farmville wants to know if you're a land lover or a water baby.  Grab your VOTE buddy and hold on tight because we have 12 new vote stages and a chance to earn as many as 24 new rewards if you're quick enough. The water and the Earth side buildings look exactly the same, the only exception being that the water side looks like it has a leaky roof. 
Our first 2 stages are TREES
We can get a Aqua Spiral Tree or a Spiral Butterfly Tree
Then we have a choice between a Levitating Water Tree and a Golden Globe Tree
Next are a set of decos, an Aqua Light House or an Earthly Watch Tower
There's a Aqua Goddess Gnomette or an Earth Goddess Gnomette
We have an Island Yacht, which is a boat with an island on top of it, seriously!  Or you can choose the Vine Print Truck
There's a Tiger Tube Duck or a Strolling Duck
An Aqua Tail Dog or a Plant Tail Dog
A Mystical Aquatic Deer or a Mystical Crystal Deer
We have a Water Lord Chimpanzee, which is an APE dressed up like the girl from FROZEN. Or you can choose the Earth Lord Chimpanzee

A Water Polo Bear or a Hand Ball Bear
and finally we can choose between a Colorful Aqua Seapony or a Unique Print Unicorn

***Community Goals***
We're on week 5 of the new Opal's Kingdom Farm and it looks like we are all out of COMMUNITY GOALS...No new goals have been coded for this farm...If the farmville studio surprises us with an update then we will be sure to let you know...It's safe to assume we are all COMMUNITY GOALED OUT for this farm...But, I'm sure we will see new community goals for the next farm...I just have a feeling

***Daily Delights***

We hope all of you out there in farmy warmy land have been collecting your candy sushi.  If you have visited your farm every day this week then you have earned your choice of consumables as well as a YOUNG RODEO SHEEP.  Starting in just a few hours we will begin another week.  This time you could win a VIKING WARRIOR MONKEY, he has a big old honkin sword.  The following week will be our last week of ROUND 12 of the Daily Delights and you could win a ROCKER PONY, all decked out with a leather jacket and cool shades

Speaking of that, with the daily delights round 12 ending we need to tell you all about round 13 that will begin in a few short weeks.  Once again we can trade the the CANDY SUSHI for Fuel, Un-Withers and Ingta-Grows and we will see 12 weeks of bonus rewards.  We get a second chance at some past rewards that have been in the game in other features and market themes.  There's Musical Note Sheep, a Wedding Singer Chicken, a Floral Madness Cow, a Bouquet Phoenix, a Recycle Worker Dog, a Masked Rose Pig, a Face Paint Buffalo, Spotted Color Deer, a  Social Bash Pony, an Ornamental Elephant, a Wood Fairy Bunny, and finally a Spiral Goat.

***Morph Machine Madness***

The much maligned MORPH MACHINE ended this past Wednesday, not with a bang but rather a whimper.  This feature seemed be set up to fail as it left many players at a loss to even figure it out, and once they did it was out of time.  Hopefully the studio will get the correct feedback on this feature and make needed corrections.  We actually decided to ask the players how they were able to fare in obtaining the rewards from the MORPH MACHINE
40% say they tried their hardest, but still had 5 or more to obtain
ONLY 28% say they got ALL the animals
9% were only able to get all but 4
7% were able to  get all but 3 and another 7% were able to get all but 2 animals
while 9% say they had one animal left to obtain.

EDITORIAL COMMENT:  This reporter had 5 or more left to obtain, because she decided not to even start the feature.  This is the first feature never attempted by said reporter because of the way it was coded!  END EDITORIAL COMMENT.

***Happy Birthday, Kandy***

This past Tuesday saw a Dirt Farmer birthday.  Dirt Farmer Kandy celebrated her special day and we'd like you all to help us wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
***Battleground Challenge News***

CONGRATULATIONS! to our WINNER of last Week's BATTLEGROUND St. Patrick's Day Celebration Challenge (week ending 03.19.2017) Nita Norris. This Week's NEW Challenge is SECRET TREATS for the Fountain of Springs. The reward for the winner of this Challenge will be a Papa Dirt Prize: your choice of ANY Unwither Ring or Double Statue from the Market. If you are not a member of the Battleground Group JOIN TODAY and invite your friends.

*** Contest***

ATTENTION! We have a new contest running right now.  Our APRIL FOOL'S DAY contest will require you to comment on our website post.  NOT ANY OTHER PLACE THAT YOU MAY SEE IT ON FACEBOOK.  You must comment on the website.  It is recommended that you comment via Facebook rather that through blogger but, if you do comment through blogger be sure to COMMENT your name.  Also add your FVID and please be specific on the prize you want:  any Un-Wither Ring, we need to know which farm, or Any Double Points Statue and again we need to know what farm, or any other BONUS statue.  We will announce the winner on our April 2nd show

We have new Leaderboards to talk about.  The leaderboards are probably the easiest way to get much needed consumables such as Insta-Grows, Un-Withers and Super Fertilizers.  This week's LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE will see us harvesting 6000 Blood Bananas. Ouch, I'm not even going THERE.  But, I can tell you this  limited edition crop will take 23 hours to grow and will be in the market at the normal update time, 13 hours before the Leaderboard begins.  Our LOCKED CROP CHALLENGE will require us to harvest 300 Ribbon Coral, Ribbon Coral is an Opal’s Kingdom crop that grows in 8 hours.  For our CRAFTY CHALLENGE this week, we will need to make 12 Peace Jade Conch.  Peace Jade Conch is a 4 hour Crafter’s Shell recipe

***New Farm Information***

COMING SOON!!! is the NEW Farmville Expansion LEGEND OF TENGGUAN! Early Access is on April 17th and we can tell you in advance it's a THAI Farm with two regions similar to the ones from Once Upon A Winter Farm. It will give new shrines, monks and a very special and unique turtle feature surprise! Stay tuned for more updates!

***Special Delivery Box Update***

GREAT NEWS FARMERS! You can NOW use Special Delivery Boxes on treasures and main buildables up to Once Upon A Winter Farm except for 2 parts for the Wild West Farm main buildable: the glue laminate and paint bucket. Issue has been reported to the FV Studio and we hope for a quick fix.

***Fountains of Spring Update***

Want to finish The Fountain of Springs the fastest way possible? We have a hot tip to share, thanks to Farmer Bee from OZ. If you select the Main Fountain Campsite to start the feature, you can SAVE a total of 190 SECRET TREATS, the animals shown below need fewer treats for redemption than in the other campsites.

***Opal’s Kingdom Land Expansion***

If you are looking for more room on the new Opal's Kingdom Farm then we have some great news for you.  The Fish Fields earned land expansion will unlock in just a few short hours, get GILLIGAN'S permission and Upgrade Shell Stronghold to Level 3, Unwrap 10 Mystery Presents in the Bubble Greenhouse, and Reach Opal's Kingdom Level 33.  Then you will be granted GILLIGAN'S consent to unlock Fish Fields, the Skipper, too, and the Professor and Mary Anne...

***Wine Tasting All Farm Quest***

Get ready to get drunk Farmers.  This coming Thursday will se the start of the Wine Tasting Quest.  I hope it comes with free samples.  We will have 2 weeks to finish this 9 stage quest.  Be sure to check out our HOT CROP CHEAT SHEET in order to get a jump on collecting those bushels for your crafting, as well as helping out your neighbors.  We get another new crop with this quest, and it will be needed in stages 4 and 6.  The Rainbow Berry Bloom will take 23 hours to grow.  You know, I would have thought that maybe we'd get a GRAPE crop for a wine tasting quest?  Oh well, let’s check out our rewards for this quest.  Besides the usual consumables we have a chance to earn a Glowing Wine Tree, a Winery Host Koala, a Grape Wine Deer, and a Vineyard Unicorn.

***Chapter 5 Opal’s Kingdom Quest***

These new farms just keep flying by.  We are already heading into Chapter 5 of Opal's Kingdom.  You can get a much needed jump on your crafting by making 3 Amazonite Beads and 3 Topaz Gemstone in the Crafter’s Shell.  The 18 hour TENTACLE FLOWERET BUSHELS will be in high demand for this quest.  Be sure to have some handy for yourself and your neighbors.  Your rewards for all of your harvesting, crafting and begging are:  A Pearl Bloom Tree, a Penguin Ocean Princess, yes it's a penguin princess being pulled on a water sled by 3 dolphins and is way too busy.  Then we have an Aqua Stripes Rabbit.  Duck The Miner is our next reward, maybe he's like Bob the Builder, only he yells CAN YOU DIG IT...YES WE CAN!!!  Then we have a Pearl Keeper Otter and a Clown Fins Horse.
