I was thinking about this last night. It would be cool to have a minor improvement in which you could can a veggie. It could kinda be like the lettuce patch card where you plant on that card but instead you "can" on that card. It would take like 3 rounds to produce but at the end you could get a victory point or two. Just something fun to think about.

Perhaps something like "Place a Vegetable from your supply on this card. It is worth N bonus points at the end of the game. Add M to the number of the current round and place X food on the corresponding Round space. At the start of that Round, you can take the food."

where N, M and X are to be determined.

Probably cleaner mechanically to just make it cost a vegetable to play and put a VP or 2 on the card.

Except it shouldn't cost you the vegetable, it should be a requirement to have a vegetable field planted.

It could be an ongoing item like hides(?) where each time you cook a veggie you get a bonus point. Thematically, it just seems like the food should be delayed. That also makes tha use of the card in the last round(s) a decision, as you would need to weight the bonus points against you need for food. If it is just a bonus point for having vegetables, that is not much different than Great pumpkin, so why bother?

Puts me in the mood to figure out something about salting meat and preserving foods (i.e. for Agricola). Well, something I could learn for real, too.
