Sims 3 Herbs

My Sim's got 420 problems but an herb ain't one
I'm just starting to explore the Sims 3 University expansion pack in earnest. Even though I have had the expansion for quite some time, this is only the second time I have sent a Sim to university. Now that he is there, I decided to have him take advantage of all the herbal benefits to be found for a young Sim who is away from his parents for the first time. You know college kids and their herbs!

So many gnomes!

Have you checked the gnome list lately?
I recently decided to pep up my gameplay by challenging myself to collect all the gnomes. This turns out to be a fairly difficult feat. In fact, I'm not sure I will finish by the end of this generation, which would be a first for me.
There are two reasons why collecting gnomes is difficult: first, because there are so many of them. And second, because they are not easy to get. The game weights them so that they are one of the rarest in-game items.
