Screenshot of Veggie Patch game start


The instructions are included in the game, but in case you forgot to read them, here they are in a little more detail.

  1. The aim of the game is to grow vegetables and make money.
  2. Select which veg you would like to grow and then choose a patch to grow them in.
  3. When you are ready, harvest the veg you have grown.
  4. Different veg like to grow at different times and at different rates throughout the year. So choose wisely when to plant and when to harvest.
  5. Watering the veg makes them grow more quickly.
  6. If you have a snail in your veg patch, treat it with pesticide to remove it or simply harvest the patch early. Be quick though as they will soon eat through the entire patch.
  7. If you move past the season for the veg you have planted, it will start to die. So keep an eye on them and if they start to disappear, harvest them quickly.
  8. Good luck!
