Grow your own garden on XKCD

Xkcd Garden

For April Fools’ Day, Randall Munroe made an interactive widget where you can grow your own garden. Here’s mine so far. Others’ gardens are further along, with people and octopuses showing up. As with real gardens, the keyword is “patience”.

Update: In experimenting with his garden, @dennis_e_a found:

One color of light on a spot of ground changes what grows. Red: Desert, Blue: Ocean, Yellow: Park-ish

I have modified my lighting accordingly, but my flora and fauna have yet to follow suit. Perhaps I need to prune a bit?
