20. MONEY CROP
February 19, 1975
A new farmer in Walnut Grove, Joe Colter, convinces the other farmers to switch from wheat to corn. On his way back from Minneapolis with the corn seeds, Joe’s wagon overturns out of sight of the road, and he is trapped beneath it. Meanwhile, the farmers in Walnut Grove become suspicious when Joe is late to return, and they take their frustrations out on Joe’s pregnant wife. Charles is able to find Joe, and bring him and their corn seed back safely to Walnut Grove. To make up for their poor behavior, the farmers help an injured Joe by tending to his fields.
