I was under the impression that the trilogy is: Cottage Garden, Indian Summer and Spring Meadow.

That is correct. I should have/will make that clearer. I just wanted to note that Patchwork also uses the Tetris style pieces/gameplay.

It's the same here in the Midwest. We had one in our back yard when we moved into our house. When looking them up to remove him, I stumbled across them being called whistle pigs, which I just loved and wanted to include that little bit of info.

Not to be a pedantic jerk, but Cottage Garden is one of the games in Uwe's puzzle trilogy.

I'm curious if you played Cottage Garden and/or Indian Summer, Wade. Both were hugely disappointing to me (despite loving Patchwork), making me leery of Spring Meadow.

Yes, as I said in the review, I own Cottage Garden. I disliked the scoring and, more so, the "avoid negative points at the expense of building at the end of the game". Overall, not a fan of it. I've only played Indian Summer a couple of times and wasn't impressed enough to consider a purchase. However, Spring Meadow, avoids the pitfalls I found in the first two. You never clear your boards, they remain filled the entire game and the scoring doesn't happen at a fixed "round." It is easily the best of the trilogy.
