# Kindergarten Garden

Given a diagram, determine which plants each child in the kindergarten class is responsible for.

The kindergarten class is learning about growing plants. The teacher thought it would be a good idea to give them actual seeds, plant them in actual dirt, and grow actual plants.

They've chosen to grow grass, clover, radishes, and violets.

To this end, the children have put little cups along the window sills, and planted one type of plant in each cup, choosing randomly from the available types of seeds.

 ```1 2 3``` ```[window][window][window] ........................ # each dot represents a cup ........................ ```

There are 12 children in the class:

• Alice, Bob, Charlie, David,
• Eve, Fred, Ginny, Harriet,
• Ileana, Joseph, Kincaid, and Larry.

Each child gets 4 cups, two on each row. Their teacher assigns cups to the children alphabetically by their names.

The following diagram represents Alice's plants:

 ```1 2 3``` ```[window][window][window] VR...................... RG...................... ```

In the first row, nearest the windows, she has a violet and a radish. In the second row she has a radish and some grass.

Your program will be given the plants from left-to-right starting with the row nearest the windows. From this, it should be able to determine which plants belong to each student.

For example, if it's told that the garden looks like so:

 ```1 2 3``` ```[window][window][window] VRCGVVRVCGGCCGVRGCVCGCGV VRCCCGCRRGVCGCRVVCVGCGCV ```

Then if asked for Alice's plants, it should provide:

While asking for Bob's plants would yield:

• Clover, grass, clover, clover

For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism help page.

For running the tests provided, you will need the Minitest gem. Open a terminal window and run the following command to install minitest:

 `1` ```gem install minitest ```

If you would like color output, you can `require 'minitest/pride'` in the test file, or note the alternative instruction, below, for running the test file.

Run the tests from the exercise directory using the following command:

 `1` ```ruby kindergarten_garden_test.rb ```

To include color from the command line:

 `1` ```ruby -r minitest/pride kindergarten_garden_test.rb ```
