Okay so I'm a bit lame, and got hooked on playing a virtual farming game...
BUT it's actually fun, you only mess around with it for 5 or 10 mins a day, check in water your plants / animals. Your farmer can only do so much in a day, after that you have to wait until tomorrow to do more.
Kind of a good way to get new CP growers in the habit of checking on their own plants every day too. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes addictive. If you use the link below to sign up you'll be part of my cooperative. (Terraforum farmer group, hehe) Then we can all be lame online farmers together!
If it starts you off in the same season as me, it's almost winter. So I'd stick to working with livestock or fishing. Make sure to read the game guide!
