Earl and Pearl are growing pumpkins, and Chicken wants to help. Earl and Pearl dig the garden and plant the seeds, and water and weed...but Chicken only wants to scratch in the dirt. Earl and Pearl don’t want Chicken around, so they shoo her away. But then one day grasshoppers come to the garden, and Chicken proves herself useful.
