GARDENING TOUR, WHEN ABC'S "THE GOODE FAMILY" MOVES
TO ITS NEW DAY AND TIME, FRIDAY, JUNE 12 AT 8:30 P.M.
"Helen's Back" � When Helen's back goes out, it looks like all is lost for the Goodes' chances of being featured on the all-important organic garden tour. Help comes in the way of a Latino gardening crew and a former Burmese childhood pen pal of Helen's. Right before the committee arrives to inspect the garden, the Goodes realize they have unknowingly been exploiting the workers.
