Crops Guide

Something that The Sims has never really embraced before is the idea of farming or growing your own food. Indeed, it is possible in The Sims Social to be able to make quite a bit of money from growing crops in your garden. You can argue that this is just the developers jumping on the bandwagon and including a farming element because of the other Facebook games with this feature - however, that doesn't mean we should ignore it and there are benefits to embracing the farming side of things.

The obvious thing to mention first of all is that while pumpkins are the most valuable crop, they take by far the longest to grow. Because you are limited to the number of crops you can grow at once, you will actually earn much more money from planting lots and lots of strawberries, as you can harvest them more quickly compared to the rest. Obviously constantly re-planting crops takes a lot of management, however, so if you are going to bed for the night or will be off your Facebook account for a while, it makes sense to prioritise slow-growing, high-value crops so that when you return you get the most return.
