"Zen Garden" is the second segment of the sixty-third episode of Big City Greens.


Nancy tries to prove herself on the farm. Bill struggles to relax at a fancy spa with Gramma.


Bill has worked himself tired from all the farm work, causing the family to tell him that he needs a break. By chance, Nancy arrives with the intent to do the farm work for him while he goes and relaxes as a spa. Gramma Alice is against it, until she offers her a trip to the spa as well. Bill leaves behind an incredibly long list of how to handle the plowing for the day with Cricket and Tilly offering their assistance. While Alice is happy to be at the spa, Bill still finds himself unable to relax and even tries to trim the bonsai plants. Upon getting a massage, the employees are horrified at how stiff Bill is as his skin is impenetrable.

Back at the house, Nancy completely ignores the first step: brush the cow for 300 strokes and brush the goat for 301, and proceeds to skip other important steps so that she can get to plowing. When it comes time to get the cow, she is flummoxed by her inability to do the work and by the goat who proceeds to eat everything. Cricket and Tilly deduce that Nancy did not follow the steps and the goat ends up eating the entire list. Meanwhile, the employees at the spa are having trouble trying to calm Bill down and Alice is forced to knock him out with her fake leg. This results in Bill having a hallucination of his truck telling him to let go, thus allowing him to finally relax.

Nancy is incapable of setting things right and decides to improvise by using her motorcycle to plow the dirt. Despite her best efforts, the plow looks worse and she believes she has failed. However, a very relaxed Bill and Alice return and, to everyone's surprise, Bill is not only unphased by the destruction of the farm, but also compliments Nancy for trying something different and for doing her part with the family. As a reward, Bill reveals that he bought more passes to the spa for all of them. Unfortunately, the goat eats them and when Cricket asks if they were expensive, Bill screams in frustration.
