And what would a successful farm be without crops? Planting, watering and harvesting your crops takes up a great deal of time and stamina, but is well worth it. Harvest your crops for gold, use them in cooking or give them as gifts! All of these things will make you more successful. This section includes information on vegetables, fruit trees, flowers and more.

The Basics

Before you can plant crops, you must first clear the land of weeds, stumps, wood, and stones using your tools such as a sickle (although pulling weeds by hand is much more efficient), hammer and axe. Once you have done this, use your sickle to till the soil, then plant your seeds and water them! One of the first tool upgrades you should consider if a new watering can, as you will use this every day and watering your crops takes a large chunk of stamina. You should also carry some herbs and foods to eat while working to prevent yourself from passing out. Before you upgrade your watering can, you should plant your crops to provide for ease of watering and harvesting. The best way to do so is the following...

This layout is also ideal for crops that can be harvested from multiple times, as it is easier to water and harvest. If you have a non-renewable crop and an upgraded water can (above copper), the best layout is to plant a full 3x3 square.

Crop Information

Expanding on the crop system, there are many factors that play into what quality crop you produce and how long it takes to grow. The following growth times are for NORMAL SOIL only, poor/fertile soil growth times soon to come. In addition, three sell prices may be listed for a type of crop. This indicates poor, normal and good crops and what they sell for. Seeds are purchased from Lyla at Spring Farm year round.

Trees can be a bit tricky, but are not too difficult once you learn the basics. You must leave at least two spaces between trees in order for them to grow. In addition, if you plant a tree too close to a road, stone, or some other object, it will not grow, however if you remove the object (such as a stone), your tree will then mature into an adult tree.

Name Season Seedling Cost Growth Time Sell Price
Apple Fall 380G 7 days 50G
Chestnut Fall 350G 20 days 50G
Evergreen --- 200G 20 days ---
Grape Fall 370G 7 days 220G
Mora --- 300G 20 days ---
Orange Fall 360G 6 days 200G

While not listed, grass is also something that you can grow. Grass costs 50G per bag and is sold Spring-Fall. Unlike other games, your grass WILL die in the Winter, and you must replant it come Spring. There are three stages of growth for grass, and when it is in its final stage (dark green) you can use your sickle to cut it. When you cut your grass, fodder is automatically placed in your silo and can be fed to your cows, sheep and horses.
