Hi KTK10,  Did you have any luck getting the oranges back after deleting DCCache? I am having exactly the same problem as you - no oranges at the store, they don't appear under Plants in the Collections Journal, and the buydebug orange soil just sits there, not growing or letting me interact with it.  Reinstalling Grandpa's Grove didn't help, so DCCache is next, but if it didn't help in your case, I may not bother.

Hi Mappin.. It still isn't working for me  :'(.  I have been searching everywhere seeing if this is a common problem, but it doesn't look like it is.  I only downloaded the set last week.. I noticed that if there are any problems with this set in general, it started last week.  When did you buy it? I am hoping that I will not have to re-do everything again, but in the meantime, I am just enjoying using the tractor! ;D

Wow!  Lots of problems it seems.  I missed the sale on this item and have been waiting for it to go on sale again.  Maybe it's a good thing and they'll have the bugs fixed when I can finally get it.  It looks so cool and I know just where I'd use it.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Missing Oranges fixed!
 
While troubleshooting my broken MultiTab on this forum, I stumbled on the easy path to fix the missing oranges problem as well. The solution is a modified (and much faster) version of Trip's suggestion about deleting DCBackup and reinstalling all store content. The culprit is the ccmerged.package file within the DCBackup folder.
 
Simone23's post in this thread, http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,10460.100.html, leads to NonaMena's solution here:  http://nonasims.wordpress.com/tag/multitab-6000/.  Nona has a wonderful detailed explanation of the steps to repairing and reinstalling premium content, and if you read through to the end of her page before taking action, she also provides a perfect solution for the laziest among us (me!) by offering her good ccmerged file for download.  I simply emptied the contents of DCBackup, pasted her good file in, and voila, oranges!   
 
Thanks to NonaMena for the excellent explanation, detailed instructions and especially for providing a valid ccmerged file to download, and thanks to Simone23 for linking to her site. I've now got oranges! (and a functioning MultiTab, too)
 
I guess this answer could go into the technical help instead, but I wanted to be sure people know that the missing oranges problem isn't with Grandpa's Grove specifically. And as KTK10 mentioned, the tractor is a blast. What a boon for gardeners.

New here to the forum, but not to Sims---been here since the very first.
I can't get Grandpa's Grove to download at all. I get the message can't download, check log. Downloading Origin didn't help. I bought Showtime from Origin and can't download that either (ah, but found the fix on this forum, yippee!) Any suggestion would be helpful. Low tech please. Or be very specific. I play, I don't program. Thanks

Sorry for the necroing of this long dead thread, but I've just been playing around with Grandpa's Grove and Grandpa's Grove Tractor, and discovered something interesting ... Sim who had no loves the outdoors or green thumb jumped on the tractor and did the watering/fertilising/harvesting process on it and he didn't gain gardening skill (he didn't have any before using the premium content. I will try giving him a bit of gardening skill by planting something and see the impact that has on gardening.
