QUEST: A Baking UndertakingEdit

Ruby Mae: I just read in the newspaper about a nearby town that threw itself a bakin' contest. We could have one ourselves!

I'll go ahead 'n write up some rules, hang 'em up down by the post office, 'n see who decides to sign up.

Visit the post office!

Ruby Mae: A little friendly competition could be just the thing we need to add a little spice to our lives, in more ways than one!

But no one's signed up yet. I might need to be a tad more proactive in order to drum up some contestants!

“Their idea of a cook-off really took off!”

QUEST: Valley RivalryEdit

Ruby Mae: Come to think of it, Miss Charity's the perfect competitor for our bake-off. I bet she'd be like to make more friends.
Invite Charity to the bake-off!

Ruby Mae: Miss Charity's on board, all ready 'n rarin' to go! This one'll be a contest for the ages!

But now that I know my competition, it seems a heck of a lot more real. I better

QUEST: It's Bean RealEdit

Ruby Mae: I reckon the recipe to go with is my grandma's peachy-keen bean bread.

Don't fret, the beans're just there for texture. There's so much sugar 'n cinnamon in there, you can't even taste 'em!

Eat some hearty beans to prepare!

Order Beans in Catalogue under Crops. (3x)

Ruby Mae: While I was growin' these beans, I felt myself wantin' more 'n more to win this here bake-off.

Miss Charity's a fine lady 'n all, but I'd sure like to beat her. I better get to whippin' these beans up!

“By growing more beans, they jacked up their bean stock.”

QUEST: Spyin' EyesEdit

Charity: It'd sure help my standing in this valley if I could win that bake-off, and it'd help if I knew what Ruby was up to.

There's some old pots 'n pans in the barn. Maybe if I poked around there a little, I could figure out her plans.

Visit the main barn!

Charity: Miss Ruby's playin' her hand real close to the chest. But I did get the cookware, so the trip wasn't a bust.

I'll just have to bake the best I can 'n keep my fingers crossed!

“It's a pity that Charity's stooping to snooping.”

QUEST: An Impartial PartyEdit

Charity: Great shakes, what a fool I am! The only person who ain't in the contest and can judge the thing is Mr. Carson!

If he's the judge, I might be able to sway his influence with some soft talk and eyelash batting!

Invite Carson to judge!

Tap the Wagon Tent to Harvest!

2 Gold med to skip
Charity: Of course, Mr. Carson agreed to be the judge, what man would pass up the chance to eat some tasty bakin'?

Though I'm not sure how much canoodling I can get away with. That Mr. Carson seems like a real straight shooter!

“Judging the bake-off's a job you can sink your teeth into!”

QUEST: A Grain-y DayEdit

Ruby Mae: Mr. Carson just informed me that Miss Charity asked him to judge the competition. I'm sure he'll be a fair judge.

I've seen how she behaves around menfolk, 'n if she thinks that'll work on Mr. Carson, she doesn't know him very well!

Get some wheat!

Order Wheat in Catalogue under Crops. (4x)

Ruby Mae: Everythings going accordin' to plan. I got my beans 'n my wheat, 'n now it's time to make some super-fine flour.
“The farmer's motto should be "Wheat, rye to please!"”

QUEST: Flour PowerEdit

Ruby Mae: This millin's gotta be done just right. If I don't, the bread'll end up tasting all gritty.

It certainly won't do for my bread to knock any of the fillin's out of Mr. Carson's teeth!

Mill some flour!

Tap the Donkey Mill to Harvest!

2 Gold med to skip
Ruby Mae: It almost time for the contest. I hope Miss Charity's plans are proceedin' well. (But not too well!)

Speakin' of which, I saw her skulkin' 'round in the barn earlier. I wonder what she's up to...

“To make flour extra fine calls for a sifter touch.”

QUEST: Judge NudgingEdit

Charity: I believe I saw Mr. Carson making his way toward the well with a bucket in his hand.

Right now might be the time to fetch a little water myself, and perhaps engage Mr. Carson in a little conversation!

Get some water!

Tap the Ranch Well to Harvest!

2 Gold med to skip
Charity: That Mr. Carson sure is a gentleman! He gave me his water and drew some more for himself.

But he wouldn't talk about the contest, 'cept to say he's looking forward to tastin' my creation.

“In this case, to curry favor is scurrilous behavior.”

QUEST: Bringing Home the Bakin'Edit

Charity: I guess I better get my act together 'n whip up my nutty 'n extra-buttery biscuits!

No man's been able to resist 'em yet. Mr. Carson has no idea what he's in for!

Have the bake-off!

Tap the Bakery to Harvest!

2 Gold med to skip
Charity: It looks like the only way to win this contest is fair 'n square, and these biscuits have a good shot at doing that!
“The long wait for the cakes to bake will be pure torte-ture!”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25

QUEST: Bake-off BandwagonEdit

Ruby Mae: I'm as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockin' chairs. I feel like my reputation is on the line.

If Mr. Carson chooses Miss Charity's biscuits over my bread, I'll feel like the eggs I used're all over my face.

Host the judging!

Tap the Dugout to Harvest!

2 Gold med to skip
Ruby Mae: I won! Mr. Carson said that even though her buiscuits were good, my bread's the heartiest, most peachy-keen bread ever!

I could tell Miss Charity was a bit disappointed, but she was a truly good sport 'bout it all.

“Here's looking at your cooking!”
