|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
After settling in, Mister Rogers mentions that he had stopped by to see Elsie Neal on his way home the previous day and she had loaned him a film to watch. The film is about a man, Simon Rodia, who builds towers out of junk and Mister Rogers shares the film on Picture-Picture. After the film, Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen were he has some fun playing with leftover items from around the house (cans, paper tubes, etc). As he does so, he sings I Like to Take My Time.
At Elsie Neal's craft shop, Mister Rogers helps to create a miniature rock garden -- or as Mrs. McFeely calls it, a "rockary." Upon his arrival at the shop, Mrs. McFeely is finishing a rockary of her own. Returning home, Mister Rogers shows Van Gogh's "The Harvest" on Picture Picture and talks about how seeds are planted and grow.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Potato Harvest Festival has arrived. Chef Brockett and Mr. McFeely help to prepare samples of Lady Elaine's brown syrup.
At Someplace Else, the potatoes are being harvested and everyone heads to the windmill to enjoy Chef Brockett's waffles with Lady Elaine's syrup. Musical entertainment at the festival is provided by the Dixie Travelers.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers puts away his spare household items before concluding with a short discussion about Thanksgiving and a short song to the tune of Tree Tree Tree:
"Thank you, God, for food to eat
