  • It's time to harvest the wheat and it's a bumper crop which will mean the Ingalls family will be able to have many items they have had to do without. The trouble is, Mother Nature has other ideas ...

    With just days to go until Charles brings in what will be a bumper wheat crop, the heavens open and send a hail, wind and rain storm that completely destroys not only the crop but also Charles's hopes of buying things his family desperately needs.

    With winter not too far away, Charles knows he must have money set aside and so he sets off many miles away to find blasting work in a quarry. It's dangerous, but the pay is good. Meanwhile, with all the women of Walnut Grove in a similar situation, Caroline decides that they can do something with the wheat which isn't as ruined as it appears to be.

    A good episode which shows how both sides of the coin can work in unison and achieve a good result.
