Ready-to-Harvest Garden in Greenwich Arboretum?!

My next three lots will be published tomorrow, 2/26, and I have a request from those of you who will be downloading the Greenwich Arboretum. I tried to make the lot in such a way that the garden is already in bloom - all plants are in a "thriving" condition and ready to be harvested. In addition, I prestocked both juicers, and you should be able to make eight different juices. I'm just curious if the lot really does appear this way for you, or if you're having to start at the beginning when entering the lot and plant everything yourself. 


Since you're able to save in play mode when you send a Sim to a secret society lot, I changed the lot zoning to a secret society, maxed out the gardening skill of the Sim sent there, and played the lot until all the plants were in bloom. Once I had the garden how I wanted it, I saved it, sent the Sim home, reentered the lot in build mode, and changed the lot zoning back to community. Note: I was able to reenter the lot without a Sim because I never placed the lot in the lot bin, which would have caused the lot to disappear as a secret society should if I had put it back in the neighborhood. Happily, when testing in my own game, everything was still harvest-ready, with the juicers fully stocked. After harvesting, leaving the lot (remember - this is as a community lot now), and reentering the lot later, the plants were still in bloom and I was able to harvest the same plants a second time. Never had to replant anything, since you can't save while playing your Sim in a community lot - just left and went back. :) Sims had veggies and fruit in their inventory upon arriving home. I really, really hope it works out that way for you all as well! 


Although you could easily live at the arboretum for a little while, since there are tents, grills, and a shower, you could theoretically stay on the lot throughout an entire planting season if you were to start a garden there from the beginning. However, since it is, after all, a community lot, and your Sims probably have things/people to take care of on their home lots, you might not want to keep your Sim there through an entire cycle just to get some produce. Basically, I did it this way so you can access produce quickly and easily, not only so you can reap the benefits of having "mouth-watering" produce in your home juicers without the effort of gardening, but also as a way to quickly obtain something sellable for a little extra Simoleons in your Sims' pockets.


Let me know! And if it didn't, let me know that, too! If it didn't work out that way, I am very, very sorry to get everyone all hyped up and then be disappointed. :( But can you blame me for trying? ;P Hopefully, all is well. Regardless, I hope you enjoy everything the Greenwich Arboretum has to offer as it is. Happy Gardening!
