There are many poems describing the scenes of hard-working peasants. Now, if you want to experience the fun of planting vegetables and getting income from that, you just need to click on the Internet. Recently, growing vegetables on the Internet has become popular quickly. Many people grow vegetables in the major websites and steal vegetables crazily in their spare time or during the break of study or work. So, "Online vegetables" has become a trend.
The so-called "Online vegetables" game is a "Happy Farms" program. The players only need to apply for one space on some websites like QQ space, they can have a vegetable garden, as well as a hut, a food storeroom, a shovel（铲子）, a watering can and other tools. With the rising game level, they can buy at the store a variety of crop seeds, and then plant the seeds, water and fertilize the plants, while anxiously awaiting the harvest. The kinds of plants, once ripe, need to be harvested in a rush. That’s because if not gathered in timely, the fruits may be stolen or sold out for money.
As the game becomes a fashion, the common greeting “Good morning!” has been replaced by “Have you stolen any vegetables today?”

Recently, a game called “Online vegetables” has become popular. In the game, the players need to grow vegetables with care. By harvesting the fruits, the players can gain profits. They can also steal others’ vegetables to increase their income effortlessly.
The game "Online vegetables" which has gain popularity, has exerted great impact on people. To gain more profits, some players even get up at midnight to steal other’s vegetables. Some go to great lengths to list the time when others’ vegetables are ripe so as to gather in their fruits. What’s more, some players spend large sum of money buying fertilizer or other things to raise the vegetables. All these strange phenomena have aroused people’s concern.
To me, the addiction to the game is just beyond my comprehension and it’s not worthwhile. Although it can relieve some pressure of study or work, it is unreasonable to spend so much time and efforts on the growth of fake vegetables. The money they earn is nothing more than a number, which can’t be used as a currency. Therefore, it is simply crazy to put your heart into the vegetables. Therefore, the game is not worth our time or efforts.
