Gathering different items in the mountains will be you main source of income during the start of the game, and will later provide a nice source of pocket change and stamina restoring items. The items to forage change during the different seasons. The following is a complete list.
 Spring Items
1. Edible Herbs: Found- Cave, area near the fisherman's tent
Selling Price: 30 gold Gift Rating (1-10): 2 These herbs taste good, and can be a snack. Since they only sell for 30 gold, it won't do damage to forfeit them for stamina. To find them, look around the fisherman's tent, and in the cave.
2. Veryberry Fruit: Found- Fisherman's Tent Area, Grove, Spring
Selling Price: 40 gold Gift Rating: 4 The Verrberries are found in many places. They are very popular with the vineyard workers.
3. Medical Herbs: Found- Cave
Selling Price: 70 gold Gift Rating: 5 While they don't taste good, they are very useful when it comes to making medicine. The owner of the Potion Shop will especially like receiving these, and they grow from spring to Fall.
4. Flowers: Found- Fisherman's Tent Area, Grove
Gift Rating: 9 Flowers are everywhere in the grove, and you can find some near the fisherman's tend too. They make really good gifts for all the girls, but specially Popuri. They can be found in summer as well as spring.
5. Fish: Found- River, Pond
Selling Price- Small: 30g Medium: 100g Large: 180g Gift Rating: 7 Fish can be worth it, or not, depending on the time it takes, and what size fish you catch, though you can't depend on the fish fore you never know how long it will take to catch, and what size fish you catch. It is recommended you fish only when you are not pressed for money and time. You can fish from Spring - Fall.
 SUMMER ITEMS:
1. Walnuts: Found- River Shore, Carpenter's House Area
Selling Price: 70 gold Gift Rating: 5 Walnuts make nice gifts for the townsfolk. Though they make good gifts, they aren't as good as Tropical Fruits, and sell for more, so sell these.
2. Tropical Fruits: Found- Spring Area, Carpenter's House Area
Selling Price- 40 gold Gift Rating: 6 Tasty fruits that make good gifts. Sell or gift these.
 FALL ITEMS:
1. Poison Mushroom: Found- Carpenter's House Area

2. Wild Grapes: Found- Carpenter's House Area, Spring Area

3. Mushrooms: Found- Fisherman's Tent Area, Carpenter's House Area
Selling Price- 70 gold Gift Rating: 5 Unlike their poison relatives, these mushrooms make a nice little 70 gold, as well as decent gifts.
 WINTER ITEMS:
Note: Nothing can be foraged in the winter, nor grown (unless you have the [greenhouse]), so the mine is the only place to go.
1. Coin: Found- Mine
Worth: 10 gold You can't actually keep these, but they add an instant 10 gold to your money.
2. Iron Stone: Found- Mine
Selling rice: 100 gold These are worth the least out of the stones, but can be found in the mine often, making up for the price.
3. Moonlight Stone: Found- Mine
Selling Price: 500 gold This crystal-clear stone is a big step up from the iron stone in prices, but sadly, in rarity as well.
4. Blue Stone: Found- Mine
Selling Price: 700 gold A nice blue stone that can be found in the mines worth a hefty 700 gold. Rick is looking for some of these blue stones as well.
5. Rare Minerals: Found- Mine
