Spring has arrived and the residents of Port Protection complete essential builds and chores. Hans and Timbi take a giant step in realizing their dream of owning a working farm, by constructing a large duck pen. Sam forges staples, a small but critical tool, before heading out on his skiff to harvest firewood from the beaches surrounding Port Protection. Across the island, Mary reaches a remote mountain lake in order to catch freshwater trout, but a late spring squall has put the trip in jeopardy. Using milled wood from local trees, Curly attempts to breathe new life into his old truck by building a new flatbed, one that will provide the community with more firewood during the long, cold winter ahead.
