A fun game of gardening for young and old
January 19, 1999

Each player gets a card listing the goals of what to plant in his/her garden. All cards are equivalent but different. The vegetable on the top row is your 'key vegetable'. You want to have exactly 2 of your key vegetables in your garden to score the most points. The two vegetables under it are your scoring vegetables - get as many of these as possible. Each card also has a minus vegetable - you lose two points for each of these in your garden.

The game consists of picking a random tile and placing it in one of the gardens in the middle of the table. There is one garden for each player in the game plus one extra garden. When playing tiles, you generally try to make a garden that goes well with your card. Once in the game (and only once) you forego your normal turn and claim one of the gardens as your own. Once you pick it, you are stuck with it. Other players may continue to plant vegetables in your garden if they wish. As soon as your garden is filled, you tally your points and wait for the other gardens to get filled. The player with the most points wins.

There are also dandelions, clovers, slugs and moles to make the game even more interesting. This is a fast paced game that doesn't require too much brain power. You can go for the quick win or try to ruin your opponents garden (watch out - your opponent might retaliate). Lots of fun!
