It's springtime, and Porky is planting a vegetable garden with the aid of his dog Streamline. Unfortunately, his garden is soon targeted by hungry chickens, who begin devouring his crops. After he fails to chase them off, he resorts to tactics like setting up a scarecrow and siccing Streamline on them. When all else fails, he resorts to making a deal with them.
