From the introduction:
The Veggie Patch is a rather unusual role-playing game. Players aren't powerful wizards, out to discover the secrets of the universe. They aren't highly trained spies, trying to save the world, nor do they fly around the galaxy in a space ship. They aren't even your typical hero, off saving damsels in distress.
No, that isn't a typo. Vegetables. The things that grow in the garden, and that most of us eat on a regular basis. To be fair, these aren't normal vegetables. They are the result of a magical experiment gone wrong. Just like regular people they can think, move, talk and generally get into trouble. Lots of trouble.
