This set allows Sims to work from home. This hacked tomato crop is easier to care for than the Unleashed crop. The resulting Fresh Tomato when harvested cannot be placed in a pantry. Instead it may be sold directly off of the vine or harvested and then either given to other Sims as gifts or used in the Green Gardener Canning Station to create Tomato sauce which is then sold. Developing your Sim's Food (or Outdoor) interest and Cooking skill will increase the amount of money made from these sales.

Place the plant in your garden, water and when it blooms, you can harvest or propagate the plant (to make a new plant). Harvesting a plant can mean selling it directly from the vine or, for those with Hot Date and higher, adding the "Fresh Produce" to your inventory. Sims with a high interest in the Food (*) have a better harvest, making more money from the direct sales, harvesting more tomatoes into their inventory, and doing less damage to the plant so it can be harvest again sooner.

The Fresh Tomatoes (which never get old or go bad, by the way) in your inventory can be given as "gifts" (like HD's roses, lollipops, etc) or used to make tomato sauce in our special hacked canning station. Your tomato sauce will be a better quality (sell for more money) the higher your cooking skill is. Poor cooks can ruin a batch of Fresh Tomatoes by canning them and are always better off selling the tomatoes straight from the vine. Great cooks with a high Food (*) interest can make a LOT of money (In fact, this came out more of money cheat than I actually intended. oops!)

Like the maxis original, this object does raise your cooking skill with use. Unlike the maxis original which is always available, the Green Gardener canning station does REQUIRE the fresh tomatoes (in your inventory) to get the sauce started.

No EP required, but both items are enhanced by HD

Reminder: this plant does not replace the UL tomato plant, and the crops can't be stored in the pantry or used to cook meals, or sold to the OT gardener.

* NOTE: The Food interest was added with the Hot Date expansion pack. For those playing a pre-HD game, the interest that effects harvesting is Outdoors.

  • Pantry (UL)
  • Sink (LL)
  • Stove top (LL)

  • Dining Chair (TS)
  • Decorative Basket of Tomatoes (TS)
  • Window Curtain (TS)
  • 3 Lighted Overhead Cabinets (TS)
  • 2 hacked Kitchen Hutches (TS)

Both kitchen hutches are hacked bookcases that allow Sims to study Outdoors and Food interest, as addition to Cooking and Mechanics. (Food Interest only appears for those with HD+)

One of the hutches has an additional hack allowing sims to have an apple as a snack. It is a free snack that is always available to both adults & children and gives as much hunger as the bag of chips from the fridge.
