Oliver decides to plant all 160 acres of his farm with wheat
in order to maximize his profits. However, according to
The Crabwell Corners Conservation and Stabilization
Committee since Mr. Haney only grew eight acres of wheat in
the 1958/1959 season, Oliver can only grow eight acres of
wheat this season. Mr. Douglas goes into one of his typical
tirades. He calls a meeting, organizes a petition, and calls
Washington to protest.
Mr. Haney in an unusually charitable gesture, sneaks in
Mr. Douglas's wheat seeds and is prepared to take up arms
against the National Guard in what he refers to as "The
Seige of Green Acres." As it turns out, Oliver can grow
as much wheat as he would like. It turns out that the
"wheat penalties" law had been abolished in 1953, and the
Conservation and Stabilization committee was just a little
behind on reading their mail.
The show ends with Lisa explaining to Oliver how she is
having a problem with the washing machine...It seems when
she put in the table cloth, she forgot to take off the dishes!

In one scene, Oliver is taking a shower outdoors. He
drops the soap, looks around nervously, puts on a bathrobe
and goes to retrieve the soap. Upon re-entering the shower
though, his robe drops open, and he is CLEARLY wearing a
pair of white bathing trunks underneath.
Oliver plans on growing 160 acres of wheat. This will take
6000 pounds of seed and yield 4000 bushels of wheat. The
expected first year profit for Oliver and Lisa's farm is
$7,730.00 (or 1 and 1/2 mink coats)
We are informed that in this episode, Oliver and Lisa
have been on the farm for six weeks
