THE STORY
It's time for Oliver to plant tomatoes, but who should he trust for his weather reports?

WPIXL-TV uses Mildred, the little old lady in the house, while WTBZF radio uses Walter, the singing weather man. One predicts rain, the other predicts drought. Oliver decides to go on his own instincts and plants his tomatoes, only to have to pull them all out that evening due to frost!

The next day, Mr. Kimball points out that "Richard Poor's Almanac" by Franklin Benjamin, had predicted the frost...and that today would be the day for Oliver to plant his tomatoes.

Oliver decides to be more scientific though, and verifies with the United States Weather Bureau in Washington, that the future was bringing warm weather. Oliver convinces the valley that it's okay to plant.

Unfortunately, everybody is wrong, and the next night is the coldest one of the year. The entire valley will lose their crops if something isn't done.

Lisa ends up saving the day though...They use her "Crepe Suzettes" (Hot cakes set on fire) as smudge pots to keep the plants warm and save everybody's crops.
