    I remember an old computer game, Sword of the Samurai … or something like that. During the load times, it would flash messages like, ‘The tranquil mind eschews impatience’ and other comments about patience.

    She could plant Kudzu, that grows fast.

    “Bushido Blade” did that.
    The game wouldn’t end if you got killed; it ended if you fought dishonorably.

    How about lantana or crabgrass?

    And it is notable that some of those plants aren’t going to grow AT ALL where they are (bananas and coconuts are cent-percent tropical; coffee needs high tropical ground alone)

    Dandelions always grow quick for me.

    I’m reminded of SimFarm. I played that in middle school for AgriScience to give us a general idea of what it takes to raise a farm. The results would have been much more to Agnes’ speed, if she had a computer that is.

    And consider the very real chance the coffee is grounds, the olives are pickled, pitted with pimento, the oak is a twigg, the banana is a peel.

    Further, even if she planted the real things, they’d need nearly twice as much growing room

    Plant radish seeds, Agnes. They grow almost anywhere—and fast. But ten hours is pushing it a bit.

    Add rows for bird seed, pickles and prunes.

    For someone eight years old, 12 hours is a much higher % of their time than someone eighty years old.

    What, no chocolate? (I found a place that sells little chocolate trees. They don’t tell you they don’t include the midges the things need for pollination.)

    Kudzu is edible too.
