Original Farming Bob for Fallout 3.

Farming Bob NV

Growing Fungus can be harvested in Vault 22 in the Pest Control floor where you rescue Keene.
Once you have that item, you can convert food plants into seeds and grow them.
You have to drop the "Growing Fungus" and Sneak and Activate it to get the menu options.

This works for all New Vegas food plants.
This works for Apple, Pear, Mutfruit and Crunchy Mutfruit, potatoes and carrots.

If you Sneak and activate the plant, you will get new menu options.
If you don't sneak, this mod assumes you are trying to harvest your crop.

Broc Flowers and White Horsenettle like to burrow into the ground when you plant them.
When you plant these two flowers, you get a pile of dirt.
Click on the dirt to dig the flower out of the ground.
Click on the dirt a second time to clear the dirt away.

There are a few quests involving Vault 22, so you may want to read about those.

If you ignore the plants, they grow one fruit/vegetable per day.

If you are standing, clicking on the tree/plant gives the standard action of picking/harvesting.
If you are sneaking, you get the menu options.

You don't get the menu options if you have already picked the vegetables off the normal plant. You will have to wait till the plant resets.

You can enable random spawns.
Once random spawns are enabled, once a day, when the Player interacts with a plant, there is a chance that something will spawn.
The actual spawn occurs 24 hours later.
