"Gardening Mama is a spin-off of the highly popular Cooking Mama series. It is made for the Nintendo DS and is similar to its predecessor, only this time you are organizing a video game garden. You use the stylus to plant seeds, dig holes, water plants, add the right soil, and all sorts of other little mini-games designed to grow the virtual garden. You can then use your grown vegetables to make other items that would be used in, you guessed it, cooking recipes! Your plants can grow in different ways and colors, which makes it a consistently changing environment and therefore more fun. You can also decorate your garden, change Mama's clothing, and trade what you've grown with friends online. It looks like an excellent addition to the Mama series!"
