I was wondering about the harvest times too. My kids only have a few plants and it lets them harvest pumpkins and watermelon every 2 days, so I set up 2 gardens completely full and they only let me harvest every 7 days! I thought I was going to make a fortune!

It's great to see that so many people have gotten bitten by the gardening bug.

But, have you started to wonder if it is really worth the effort? I asked myself that and have got some figures to answer that question.

Over the last 7 days, I have averaged just under 12 minutes a day inspecting, weeding, watering, harvesting and selling from my garden plot. It has produced an average of 154 kinz cash per day when sold at the W Shop.

Income for my time spent works out to about 13 kinz cash per minute. Almost all of the Webkinz arcade games pay out less than that except to the very best players in a very few games.

So, gardening for profit does work!! Maybe you won't get rich quick (it will take about 4 weeks just to recover the original seed cost), but the money does add up. I'm making almost 1000 kc a week.


By the way, here is a pic of my garden. I planted mostly carrots because they have the best yield rate. Also, put in just enough of others to only block one of the door ways.

Hope this convinces a few more to get into the "gardening for profit" idea.

I to find the wtering tedious, we all need to demand that ganz give us sprinklers and I also think you should have fertilizer that when applied give you better harvest. I also would like to see them change the color of the dirt when the plant is watered just like in real life the color is different then you can see what is watered without using that stupid ruler

Bert you must be related to my husband. That info is the kind I thought only he figured out. Like how much money we could save by taking which vehicle on trips, or on whose work commute. LOL!!!

I totally agree with the need for sprinklers. I was going to tell them that!

I make loads of money on my gardens but I have three and I get around 400kc for my work. It is a bit boring watering everything I can say that for sure. I tried to figure out when things would harvest so I could have many things harvest all at the same time. I am still struggling with that. One garden I have takes up almost all of the yard.

I have quite a few veggies growing, but I think I need to rev it up a bit.....sounds like tomatoes, carrots and strawberries are the way to go.....is there one veggie/fruit that has a tendency to need raking or is it random....anyone?
