 The Garden (Posted on 2011-05-30)
Something has broken into the garden, and has eaten what I planted there. Whatever it is, it started at each one of 11 different locations (in darker green below) and each time dispersed pieces of the scrambled plant, fruit or vegetable along its path (one letter per square) until it had finished with all its parts. The first letter in each case is at the starting location.

Try to figure out what the eleven plants, fruits, or vegetables I planted, and each time take the last letter from the path (reading from left to right and top to bottom) to figure out what broke into the garden. (For example, the creature started at the top left T and ended three spaces over, dispersing pieces of TOMATO along the way.)

(In reply to the last letters? by Charlie)

Charlie, I think you misread slightly (I was a bit confused at first, too). Each "chain" starts with the first letter of the plant (e.g., "tomato" starts with T) and ends with, well, whichever letter is at the end of the chain. Gamer noted that "tomato" ends with the A three cells over from the first T. The chain is T-M-O-T-O-A; or, in terms of directions, starting from the T: R-R-D-R-U. The last letter for "cabbage" is B, as the chain is C-A-A-G-B-E-B (or U-U-R-D-R-R).

Circle all of those last letters, *then* read them left to right, top to bottom. Then get out of the garden and call animal services!
