Mister Rogers arrives with a picture book about vegetables. After looking through the book, he talks about how people sometimes put different kinds of vegetabes together to make soup. This leads into a tour of a vegetable soup factory.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the effort to help Northwood is underway as a mass of Speedy Seeds have begun to produce a hearty crop.

Meanwhile, Daniel is disappointed to learn that the can of vegetable soup that he planted will not grow into a vegetable soup tree. To make him feel better, Bob Dog secretly places cans of soup on a tree in Daniel's pot. When he sees how excited Daniel is that his soup actually "grew," Bob Dog doesn't have the heart to tell him the truth.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I Like to Be Told.

Notes

  • As he tours the soup factory, Mister Rogers' child-like excitement shines brightly. Coming to the line where peas are dropped into a large vat, he exclaims with a huge smile on his face: "Oh! That looks like a waterfall! It's a pea fall! Look! It's a pea fall instead of a waterfall!"
