Farming - CUTE

Background


Farming is probably the main aspect of Harvest Moon DS Cute.

To farm, simply till the soil with your hoe, and plant your seeds. (Don't forget to water them though!) In this game, patches of land can be found everywhere, but the fertility of each land is different. For example, if you plant crops in the field behind the waterfall, your crops will grow much faster than normal! Below you'll find some information on all the plants which can be planted throughout the game.

Tree seeds need to be planted on a 2 by 2 square plot of land. If planted too close to your crops, trees will prevent the crops from receiving sunlight, so that crop will not grow. So be sure to plant your trees far from your crops/flowers. Trees are able to be planted in any season, but they will only produce fruits during a certain season. You'll see what trees produce fruit in what season, above.

While trees can be planted in any season, crops can only be planted in a certain season. However, if you ask Gotz to make you a basement, you can put a specific 'sun' there. Certain suns will give the basement a specific season temperature, meaning you can grow the season's crops there.

Spring Sun| Spring
Summer Sun| Summer
Autumn Sun| Fall

Also, if you plant two bags of Lv. 1 seeds on top of each other, some of the crops grown will be Lv. 2, and will sell for more money. You can keep planting seeds two bags at a time to level up your crops, and make yourself a lot more money, especially if you sell them to Van. Each time you plant two bags of seeds, some crops will be the same level you started with, and some with be a level higher. They will never drop a level. Then you can store some in your fridge so you can begin levelling up again where you left off the next year.



Giant Crops


A possibility when growing crops: A giant crop

There is a possibility that, while you are growing crops, one of your crops will turn into a giant crop. If this should happen, the giant crop will take up four squares, and when you try to harvest it, there will be a little event. In the event, Thomas calls forth the legendary harvest sprites (whom FoMT and MFoMT owners should remember) to help harvest the crop. Giant crops are worth a lot more than their regular sized counterparts. So pray that in summer you'll grow a giant Pineapple!
