Just had to write this post so I could show off a few of the beautiful berries we’ve been picking from our strawberry patch!
We’ve been picking — and enjoying — dozens of these strawberries every day. We’re definitely having our best crop of berries ever!
I do enjoy gardening, and I’m glad it’s a skill that my sims can learn, too. Not every family in my game has a garden, but many do. Some of my sims are actually quite passionate about the fruits and flowers and vegetables. I even have sims who make a living from their gardening abilities.
Strawberries in the game are, unfortunately, an uncommon fruit — which means that they’re a little more difficult to find. You can’t purchase seeds in starter packs, so if you want fresh berries, you’ll have to go out looking for them. According to Carl’s Guide to Gardening, you should be able to find strawberries growing in Willow Springs on the “Garden Essence” lot.
Gardening was first introduced to The Sims with the Unleashed expansion pack, and it’s been part of each game since. Personally, I think the gardening skill in Sims 4 is the best it’s ever been. And just as in real life, gardening skills and cooking skills can go hand in hand.
Your sims can use fresh strawberries to make lots of delicious dishes:
- Strawberry pancakes
- French toast with strawberries
- Strawberry cobbler
- Strawberry and yogurt parfait
- Strawberry cheesecake
- Monte Christo sandwiches with strawberries
- Strawberry baked Alaska
I make many of these dishes in my kitchen, and with fresh fruit, they are delicious!
If your sims haven’t been having fun in the garden, why not get started today? My one frustration is that children can’t learn gardening skills, but the rest of the family can enjoy the activity and gain health and happiness benefits from eating the fresh produce.
And don’t forget about the new Dine Out Game Pack which will be released on June 7. Happy eating!
