Challenge: maximize score against AI using only base set

So I've been playing Dominion for the iPad every once in a while; it's not great, but it's still Dominion. To make it fun, I tried to maximize my score against the AI. What Kingdom would you choose to give yourself the highest possible score? Obviously your score will depend on what the opponent decides to do, but assume that he's following a pretty crappy strategy of mostly BM with a few random actions thrown it; being smart enough to pick up points when he can. Also, he is likely to end the game if he can, even if he's behind.

My score:
111 points

My Kingdom:

Celler
Village
Smithy
Workshop
Throne Room
Gardens
Market
Laboratory
Festival
Witch (to slow the AI down; he usually won't go for Witch, or if he does not until it's way too late)

In my best game; I managed to get 101 cards in my deck; with 7 of the Gardens (AI bought 1). A few Provinces, Duchies, and Estates brought it up to 111).


Is there a strategy/Kingdom that would work better than that?
