Popeye is planting his spinach bed. But just as he finishes, the plants start disappearing. He discovers a gopher filching the little baby plants and starts battling it. They tussle for a while until Popeye gets fed up and fetches his shotgun. He chases the rodent, running past a bull and cornering it, but he doesn't have the heart to shoot. He throws away his gun, hitting the bull, who attacks. The gopher rushes to the spinach patch, eats a plant, and hurls the bull into a ravine. He teams up with Popeye to plant more spinach.

Popeye is lovingly taking care of his little "hi-bred" spinach plants, taking them for a walk in the stroller, then giving them a shower, drying them carefully ("so you're iron won't rust) and sprinkling them with insect powder. He even puts diapers on them!
Then, we see his big garden: "a peaceful, contended nursery," he calls it.....until plants start suddenly disappearing! Popeye has a gopher problem.
The two battle it out for most of the cartoon but at the end, the two suddenly become allies against a raging bull - an odd ending, but a nice one.
