The Man with the Yellow Hat has a predicament. He has to write a tribute speech for Professor Wiseman. Also, the country house cupboards are too small to hold all of their food. Then when Bill tells him how squirrels store food in the ground after seeing Jumpy Squirrel do it, George decides to do the same thing to their food. When the Man finds out, he tells George that squirrels bury nuts, seeds and things that grow. So George decides to plant and grow various objects around the house including the Man's speech which he wants to grow the rest of.
