Having thoroughly got into my Sims 3 game I am frustrated with an opportunity I have been set.... I have level 10 cooking and level 10 gardening and I have to submit 10 homegrown cheeses and then I will be awarded with more 'meaty' items to grow in the garden!
I like the idea of planting any food in the garden, so if I decide to make a sim that lives totally off the land and doesn't work, he will be able to do that without having to go to the grocery store for his food.
You have to build up your gardening skills level and also do opportunities that come up in order to plant more types of crop in your garden. I haven't got past the ability to plant eggs and cheese to the meat plants stage yet. But I'll probably make a character who's life revolves around only gardening and fishing so that I can get through all the opportunities and skills challenges in the game.

Every sim I've made so far have been fishing and gardening but it's not all they do so they haven't had time to get as far as they can in the gardening yet. That is why I will soon create a sim that works totally just on getting everything in gardening done that he can, while he's young and not busy with other things.
As for the cheese, well I know there is an omni-plant at the back of the science lab and you can grow just about anything on it (hence "omni") with a high enough skill level.
I had the option for the omni plant with my first sim but I didn't know what it did or was about or that it was already a plant that you could use. I thought it was just permission to be able to plant meat or something. Thanks for the tip.
Yes. You will be given a chance to buy the seeds directly from the mailbox. I am not sure what the challenge was. I believe it was when I got the pop up from the bistro to deliver x amount of produce and told to come back when I hit level xxx in skill. After that they told me to plant/grow steaks etc and once you get through all the challenges for them they will allow you to order omni seeds from the mailbox. Very handy.
I could have this wrong since I was in a personal challenge when this took place so my brain is a little fried. Hopefully someone will set me straight if I am incorrect in how it was accomplished
In the dutch version, they didn't even look at what it does and named it aubergine. In some places it looks as if they just ran the game through google translations. But what I don't understand is why they made nearly everything plantable except links. What about my hotdog loving sims? Maybe they thought it would give people strange ideas to see them hanging on plants
you can unlock the cheese-and-egg planting by completing an opportunity and delivering some "perfect" (or was it "outstanding"?) produce items to the bistro.
if you have enough life points, you can also get the collections helper, which tells you where all the collection items are. I sent my sim out to find all of the seeds, but I still don't have 100% of the planted items... ::sigh:: Ah well, I'll keep trying.
