A wholesome, small-town tale of a rambunctious, seven-year old boy exploring his ever-changing world while learning more about his never-changing God.
In his never-ending search for ways to support his family, Dad (Ed) decides to convert the backyard into an all-organic vegetable garden! Mom (Jan) thinks the idea is wonderful, because not only will she save a bit on the grocery bill, but she’s been trying for months to get the kids to eat better. Kip and his siblings are none too happy about losing one of their favorite play areas to raised beds filled with smelly dirt and weedy-looking plants. To make matters even worse, Dad orders way too many cucumber seeds. Deciding that he doesn’t want them to go to waste, he gets a bumper harvest: a never-ending stream of cucumbers.
Kara’s got plenty of cucumber-eating pals, thanks to a recent Pet Shop shipment of rare, dimple-cheeked tortoises. Archie flings most of what he eats over his shoulder anyway, but poor Kip would much rather have his favorite deep-fried Muncheeios for dinner instead of these weird-looking green monstrosities from space. Kip tries all sorts of solutions to rid himself of the cucumbers: hiding them under his pillow; building cucumber-erector sets and giving them away; launching them across the neighborhood via a cuke-a-pult; or simply tying them to the tails of neighborhood cats, but nothing seems to be working. It’s not until Sunday’s sermon sparks an idea with Kip that a solution is formed: convert the leftover cucumbers into food for the less fortunate. Kip and his pals get to work making pickles, cucumber salsa, cucumber mint jam, cucumber soup, cucumber pops, and more! The episode ends with lots of needy folks getting fed, the cucumber problem being solved, Dad’s new venture being a success, Kip learning a lesson, and a joke about there still being several jars of pickles to eat in the basement!
