Harvest Moon ~ A Wonderful Life Okay, this is my first walkthrough, but I think it will be pretty good, I know how crappy it is to not have a good walkthrough to depend on, so I hope I am your Harvest Moon dependable... It is kinda hard to read because of the way that cheatcode.com formats it but... Oh and you can right click and search for the word in parenthesis next to the chapter if you are looking for something particular...

(FAFQ) 1 The Characters (char) You This is the main character - you assign him a name, and he'll act however you want him to. He's the owner of a ranch, recently moved to Forget-me-not Valley to start a new life... Celia One of the three girls you can marry, meaning she's a potential main character. She moved here not too long ago from a far-away town, where her parents and brother still live. She's a bit childish at times, and a bit of a loner. She loves nature. For more on her, check the girls section. Favorite Items: All flowers, clay artifacts, crystals, Star Milk S, Mushroom Curry, Strawberry Cake Dislikes: Bones, when you tease her with the Blue Feather Muffy One of the three girls you can marry, meaning she's a potential main character. She used to work as a secretary in the city, but now lives in Forget-me-not Valley and works part-time at the bar. She's apparently quite curious about the outside world and wants to travel. Muffy's a bit flirty at times, and fairly outgoing and very friendly. For more on her, check the girls section. Favorite Items: Flowers, Amorous flowers (they grow near the turtle pond in the winter), ancient coins, shiny objects in general, butter, fruit punch, sweet potato soup, strawberry pie, strawberry cake, ice cream Dislikes: Bones, certain fish (namely, colombo) Nami One of the three girls you can marry, meaning she's a potential main character. She's a wanderer, going wherever she wants and doing whatever pleases her. She's not very friendly, and has a bit of an attitude problem. Nami only planned to stay in Forget-me-not Valley for a short period of time, but keeps changing her mind... For more on her, check the girls section. Favorite Items: All flowers that grow in fall, clay artifacts, fossilized skulls, silver coins, sweet potato soup, omelettes, curry Dislikes: Flowers, crystals, bad cooking Takakura He lives at your farm, and will ship items to town for you and will also buy animals, tools, and whatever else you need from town, too, if you have the money, that is! He pays for necessary home extensions himself, though. Favorite Items: Any cooked dish Dislikes: Unknown Carter An archeologist. He's very serious about his work, and good at it, too. You can help him out by working int he ruins. But when it comes to females and children... He knows nothing about them. (That includes his assistant, Flora.) You'll find him in the ruins most of the time. Favorite Items: Melons, cheese, sashimi Dislikes: Unknown Flora Carter's assistant. She's very indecisive and a bit dim, though she is quite friendly and polite. She's in the ruins quite often, but likes to go out and take walks near the river. Favorite Items: All fish, cheese, butter, milk, curry, mushroom curry Dislikes: Fruits and vegetables below S quality Wally (Suari) I don't know what he does for a job (I think he works in town), but he's very serious about exercise. He has training equipment all over his house. His wife is Chris, and Hugh is their son. Favorite Items: Eggs, milk, coins, sashimi, cheese Dislikes: Unknown Chris She's Wally's wife and Hugh's mother. She works in town, and isn't around all that often. Favorite Items: All flowers, milk, apples, fruit juice Dislikes: Vegetable cake Hugh The son of Wally and Chris. He's a child at the beginning of the game, but gets older with each chapter. Like his father, he is very serious about exercise. He's very friendly to everyone, including Kate, who teases him quite often. Favorite items: Milk (chapter 1 only), coins, blue crystals Dislikes: Unknown Vesta The owner of the plantation that Celia works for, making her Celia's boss and caretaker. She runs the farm with her brother, Marlin. She's very kind-hearted and willing to help out people in whatever way she can, but is rather nosy and can be pushy sometimes, too. (Especially with Marlin.) Favorite Items: Milk, flowers, crystals, earth soup, curry, gratin Dislikes: Unknown Marlin Vesta's younger brother, he works at the farm that Vesta owns. He is very unfriendly but might warm up to you a little bit--that is, if you don't marry Celia. He has a major crush on Celia, so the better of friends you become with her, the more Marlin will dislike you. Favorite Items: Vegetables of S quality, records, strength and stamina potions Dislikes: Just about everything else Daryl The local scientist. He likes to "study" various things, including how to care for children, cows, and Mukumuku. He isn't very friendly, either, and doesn't like to talk to you when he's in his house most of the time. Favorite Items: Eggs (especially golden eggs), bones, coins, earth soup Dislikes: Flowers, anything that doesn't interest him Romana The owner of the mansion. She's very friendly and quite close with her granddaughter, Lumina. Romana and Sebastian were among the very first people to come to the valley. Favorite Items: Flowers, oranges, milk, records, crystals, golden coins, clay artifacts, milk, ramura tarts Dislikes: Cheese, fish Lumina Yet another girl who grows up during the course of the game. Lumina is Romana's granddaughter, a shy girl who is trying to master playing the piano. Samantha thinks of her as an ideal girl and wishes that Kate would grow up to be just like her. Favorite Items: Flowers, fried sweet potato, strawberry cake Dislikes: Unknown Sebastian Romana's butler. He's been working with her since they were both little, so they're pretty good friends. He loves to paint and draw. Favorite Items: Eggs, milk, cheese, butter, clay artifacts, crystals Dislikes: Unknown There are LOTS more characters, I am gonna let YOU discover them all!! 2 Girls & Marriage (love) There are three girls to choose from in this game, and marriage is a requirement! However, the way you go about courtship and marriage is quite different... For one, marriage is required in this game. Since child-rearing is an important factor in later chapters, you have to get married! Although you can propose to a girl early on, you cannot get married until the end of chapter 1. (The first day of spring in the second year.) Second, no home extensions are required!! When chapter 2 starts your house will have a kitchen, and you didn't have to pay for it. Maybe Takakura figured that you would need a bigger house and paid for it himself or something... Your home is enlarged again in chapters 3 and 4. In order to get engaged, you must meet the following requirements: -Gotten a girl up to four red hearts (check her diary) -Gotten a Blue Feather from Flak You do not have to give the Blue Feather to the girl before the end of winter in order to get married. If you go all the way to the end of winter without giving the girl the feather, you'll probably end up marrying her anyway. You'll get an extra cutscene in which, well, the girl pretty much proposes to you... MUFFY Where she lives: The Blue Bar Where she works: The bar Daily schedule (before marriage): She wakes up at 10AM, and can be found in the room adjoining the bar. On days that she has to work, she'll be behind the counter around noon or one PM. On days that she doesn't work, she'll leave the bar and go for a long, long walk. You cannot give her anything while she's working, so make sure to give her a gift in the morning! After marriage: Muffy wakes up every day at 8AM and generally goes to bed at 11PM, though on nights that she goes for a walk or goes to the bar, she will go to bed later. She does leave the house quite a bit, but never goes very far. Muffy is generally quite cheerful, fairly clumsy, and somewhat flirty. It might take a little while to gain her trust, though. She's apparently been hurt by so- called friends in the past... She and Griffin are very close friends, and befriending Muffy means you'll befriend him, as well. Likes: Flowers (especially the Amorous flowers that grow in winter), sweets, coins and Moon Ores you find the the ruins. After marriage, she will only accept your home cooking, Amorous flowers, Moon Ores, and coins. Dislikes: Fossils from the ruins, colombo fish Diary: Muffy's diary is in the bar, in the potted plant in the corner. CELIA Where she lives: Vesta's farm Where she works: The same farm Daily schedule (before marriage): It varies, but she gets up at 6AM most days, and goes to bed at around 9PM. She spends most of the day at Vesta's farm, either outside or in the house After marriage: Celia wakes up every morning at 6AM and goes to bed at 10PM. In chapter 2, she very rarely goes outside... she seems to stay in the house all day, alternating between the front room and the kitchen! In fact, during the two years of chapter 2, I only saw her leave the house three times... However, in the rest of the chapters, she does go outside quite a bit. Sometimes she will go to bed a bit late if she took a late evening walk outside or goes into your child's room in the evening. She rarely stays up past 10:30, though. Celia is very cheerful, friendly, sometimes a bit childish, and obsessed with plants. She and Vesta are very close, and Vesta even says at one point that she thinks of Celia as though she were her own daughter. The more you befriend Celia, the better of friends you'll become with Vesta. However, if you become good friends with them, chances are that Marlin, Vesta's brother, will get jealous... so, beware! Likes: Flowers, moon ores and coins from the ruins, vegetables, eggs Dislikes: Fossils Really Hates: No matter how good of friends you are with her, in chapter 1, if you show her the Blue Feather and then tell her she can't have it (option 2), this will seriously damage your friendship with her. So be careful not to tease her in this manner if you want to be her friend. Diary: Celia's diary is located in her room in the attic of the house on the produce farm. Check her bed, it's under her mattress. NAMI Where she lives: The Inner Inn Where she works: She has no job Daily schedule (before marriage): One word: random. She wakes up at a different time each day (though 9AM seems to be a favorite with her) and can be found almost anywhere in the valley. However, she can be found near the mansion, near the produce farm, and in the bar a lot, so look in those places first. Some days she will go to bed very early, but other days she stays up quite late and may not get any sleep at all. She tends to sleep in long shifts, too: her record for me so far is 17 in-game hours! After marriage: She gets up every day at 7AM, and normally goes to bed at 10PM, though she stays up later when she goes to the bar. She leaves the house a lot, and sometimes goes up to Mineral Town, but most of the time, she hangs around the farm, bar, or the spring, so it's not too hard to find her. Nami is very different from Muffy and Celia. She might seem very cold and indifferent toward others, but she's merely hiding her real feelings. She's very smart, but has trouble relating to other people. She'll open up to you a lot more if you marry her, and will become more cheerful, too. Tim and Ruby think of Nami as their own daughter, so befriending her will mean that you befriend them, as well. After you're married to her, they love it if you show your child to them. Tim wishes that Rock had been more like him at that age... Needless to say, Rock might not be too fond of your child for a while... Likes: Clay artifacts and fossilized skulls from the ruins, your home cooking, flowers that grow in fall Dislikes: Any other kind of flower, minerals Really hates: Dishes that didn't come out right Diary: Her diary is in her room at the inn, near the window. 3 Children (baby) Genetic Strengths and Interests: Depending on who you married, your child has a set number of strengths and interests. The first set (strengths) is purely genetical; it's simply what he's naturally good at. The second set (interests) are simply what he likes. Though at first your child has a default number of interests, these are the things you can actually influence. Your actions, what friends you make and where you take him can and will change his interests. Credit for each of the children's default strengths and interests goes to this site. To develop his interests in... Animals: - Keep him around the farm most of the time - Keep your animals out in the pasture as much as possible - Show your child animals - Snuggle your animals - Use the Milking Room - Milk your cows/goat by hand as opposed to using the Milker Plants: - Take him to Vesta's farm - Buy and use Fertilizer - Show your son seeds, crops and trees - Grow things as much as possible Music: - Take him to Gustafa's hut and the mansion - Become friends with Gustafa Art: - Take him to Cody's house - Become friends with Cody - Have him play with the coloring book Exercise: - Take him to Wally's house - Become friends with Wally and Hugh - Walk as much as possible, try not to use your horse - Have him play with the ball Learning/Science: - Take him to Daryl's lab and Carter's dig site - Become friends with Daryl - Milk your cows/goat using the Milkers as opposed to milking them by hand - Have him play with the car toy MUFFY'S CHILD Toddler Stage It's hard to keep up with this kid. He's all over the place. He'll go to the barn, the chicken coop, the pasture, the tool shed, the path leading to the spring, etc. He constantly talks about animals, and asks you if you like animals. (You can either tell him yes, no, or that you like him better than any animal.) He tried to push his luck with his mommy once by staying out in the barn past his bedtime, and Muffy wasn't too pleased. But he didn't learn the lesson: right at the end of chapter 2, he decided to stay up by staying in the kitchen after 9PM. Muffy didn't discipline him for that one. As regards personality, he must be a lot like Muffy was at that age. He's very outgoing, just like his mama. CELIA's CHILD Toddler Stage He's just as much of a handful as Muffy's child... almost. He doesn't have that devilish, mischievous side to him. But he enjoys going out and running around the farm all day. As could be expected, he loves plants. Celia's determined to have him take over the farm one day, so she must be trying to teach him everything about plants. However... he's scared to death of animals. He's even frightened of ducks! He needs a bit of help in that regard... NAMI's CHILD Toddler Stage Three words could describe him: perfect little angel. He is so well-bahaved and calm compared to the other two. He might eventually start protesting when bedtime comes, but that's only if you've been giving him too much attention. Nami isn't even in the room half the time when his bedtime comes, and if she's not, he will always go to bed by himself! He's obsessed with shapes and colors. He'll often ask you if you are... square. While you aren't exactly square, you can either tell him you are or you are not (though he'll be rather disappointed if you tell him you're not.) He eventually also developed a fondness for plants. This little guy does go outside some, but not that often. And when he does, he rarely goes farther than the toolshed. He seems to be very unlike his mother in this way, but I'm supposing that his unsociable nature and love for learning were inherited from Nami's side. 4 Animals (cows) There are several types of animals you can raise, both as household pets and livestock. Some you have to order from town or buy from Ban, while others you get only through special events. Dogs - At the beginning of the game, you get to choose from two different dogs: a floppy-eared one and one with pointy ears. Be sure to put food in the dish by your house every day! Your dog will like you a lot more if you do. Anything edible you put into his bowl will turn into food, including herbs you find around your farm. When it rains, you don't have to bring your dog into the house (in fact, you can't) so don't worry about it in bad weather. Your dog will be fine. Eventually, once his work at the ruins is completed, Carter might give you a chihuahua. But it's likely that won't happen until late in the game, if at all. Cat - If you're good friends with Romana, she may stop by one day in Fall with a cat. This can happen any fall after or during the 1st year of chapter 2. Cows - You start out with one Normal cow, who will give milk until near the end of chapter 1. Other cows you have to pay for, and you must also pay to have a cow seeded. A heifer will not give milk until she has a calf, and will only give milk for about a year after the calf's birth. Then the cow will have to be seeded again. However, if you have a heifer mate with one of the bulls on your own farm, then it wll cost nothing to have it seeded. Prices for the cows are as follows. Type of Cow Buying Price (M) Buying Price (F) Seeding Price Normal 3000G 4000G 2500G Brown 4000G 5000G 3500G Marble 4000G 5000G 3500G Star 6000G 7000G 5500G Keep all your cows outside when it's sunny. When the weather turns bad, bring them back in. Be sure to feed the cows twice a day when they're in the barn. Calves: Calves (and their mothers) require special treatment. For one, the mother cow must be kept separate during the last few days of her pregnancy, and will be kept in the barn. Since she can't leave the barn, be sure to feed her every day! Once the calf is born, it will be kept in a special "calf hatch" built by the Harvest Sprites at the edge of the pasture. The mother cow will give special milk, Mama's milk, for a few days after she gives birth, so give the calf the special milk twice a day. After a while, the mother cow will stop giving Mama's milk, so the calf will have to drink regular milk instead. After a few more days, the calf will stop taking milk and will only eat fodder. Once this happens, it will soon be ready to leave the calf hatch and join the other animals! Milking: As stated before, cows can be milked for four seasons after they've given birth. The kind of milk will be different depending on what kind of cow is giving the milk. The grade of the milk depends on how well you take care of your cows. Once you purchase the Milk Processing room, not only will cows milk themselves, but you can make cheese and butter. In regards to butter, Regular Butter costs 225G while Good Butter costs 300G. The quality of the butter depends on the type and quality of milk. Milk Selling Prices Type of Milk Grade B Grade A Grade S Normal 75G 115G 150G Brown 115G 175G 225G Marble 115G 175G 225G Star 270G 405G 540G Milks Converted to Butter Type of Milk Grade B Grade A Grade S Normal Regular Regular Good Brown Regular Regular Good Marble Regular Good Good Star Good Good Good Chickens - Chickens are kept in the chicken coop, and the females lay eggs (duh.) If you want to incubate eggs, you must have both a hen and a rooster, and the hen has to lay a fertilized egg. Only the fertilized eggs can be incubated. Chickens cost 900G, and you can sell them for 450G. Chickens must be fed fodder you order from town, but they don't need to be fed every day. Just when the food box is empty. Eggs sell for 40G each, fertilized eggs sell for 50G, and gold eggs sell for 300G. Taking good care of any chicken may result in it laying a golden egg. Sheep - They are kept in the barn along with the cows, goats, and horse. They need to be sheared about once a season, so be sure you have a pair of shears! The quality of the wool will be different depending on how much your sheep likes you. Regular wool can be sold to Van for 75G and gold wool can be sold for 600G. A sheep costs 1500G. Horse - Takakura comes one day in Summer or Fall of year one and brings you a horse - for free! You can ride the horse around the village, which will drastically reduce the time it takes to get places. When it's in the barn, be sure to feed your horse. You cannot sell it. Goats - Starting in the first year of chapter 2, Van will sell goats during Spring. Goats produce milk, and will give milk for about one year. Goat milk sells for 120G, while good goat milk sells for 300G. They are kept in the barn along with your other animals. A goat costs 4000G. Ducks - First off, you need to have a pond built during chapter 1, and must be raising less than 6 chickens. One day, during Summer, your wife may wake up before you and tell you that ducks came to the pond! You can choose whether to keep them or not. Eventually, some of the eggs that you put into the incubator may start hatching as ducks instead of chickens! A duck can be sold for 500G. 5 Crops (carrot) Crops There are quite a few crops in this game, many of them new, and all but one can grow in more than one season, so don't worry about the fact that each season is only 10 days. All normal crops take less than 10 days to grow, anyway. You have to be much more careful with your crops, though. While you can sell crops of normal quality to Van, they don't fetch a very high price. You need to water your crops more than once a day, and if you can afford it, put down some fertilizer. By doing so, crops of regular quality (B) will become A-rank vegetables, some might even become S-rank! They will be worth more money. Only third generation crops (see the hybrids section) can be sold to town, though. You buy all your seeds at the produce farm next to your farm. To buy them, just talk to Vesta, Marlin, or Celia. They all sell seeds and fertilizer. ALL crops are non-renewable: even if the plant is still there after you harvest it, nothing will grow on it. It's best just to chop it down and plant something else. Learn from your neighbors. One thing you'll notice right away about Vesta's farm is how she plants her crops: they're arranged in a checkerboard pattern. While this greatly reduces the amount of plants you can grow, it has two major advantages: they will grow faster and won't need to be watered as often. Certain crops (such as all the 3rd generation plants and sweet potatoes) can normally only be grown during one season, so I would highly reccomend planting them in a checkerboard pattern. Most other crops grow in two or more seasons, so they can be crowded together without much worry. Trees Trees can be planted at any time of year, but will take a long time until they start producing fruit. They're more expensive, too. However, you obviously get fruit from them multiple times, so they're worth it! Each tree will only produce fruit during one season each year. Do not plant any crops in the 8 spaces surrounding the trees. Doing so will kill the crops. Note that I'm only listing the normal crops here. Hybrids have their own section. Seed Buying Price (per bag) Season Tomato 30G Spring to Fall Watermelon 60G Spring to Summer Melon 50G Summer to Fall Strawberry 30G Fall to Spring Turnip 20G Summer to Winter Potato 40G Winter to Spring Carrot 30G Fall to Winter Sweet Potato40G Fall Only Peach 1120G N/A (give fruit in Summer) Orange 820G N/A (Summer) Grape 900G N/A (Fall) Banana 1500G N/A (Summer) Apple 820G N/A (Fall) Fertilizer 120G N/A 6 Hybrid Crops (tartan) Tartan will arrive any time after the start of chapter 2 - provided that you're good friends with Takakura. Enter Takakura's house late at night, and you should get the scene in which you are introduced to Tartan. Tartan will always be in Takakura's house after that. Tartan will not make hybrid crops for you right away. You have to befriend it first. Just talk to it for a little while every day, and you'll become friends with it in no time. Normally, when Tartan asks you if you want something from it, it will only give you two options: have him investigate a fruit or vegetable for you, or talk with you. Eventually, a third option will appear: make a hybrid crop. Select that option (it will always be the one on top) and Tartan will attempt to make a hybrid out of whatever you feed it. But not every combination will result in a hybrid, and Tartan hates carrots so much that it will only accept them in seed form! And, more often than not, Tartan will not make a hybrid the first time you try. You will probably have to feed it the same two seeds or vegetables/fruits many times in order to get a hybrid. Tartan can do more than create hybrids. Feeding it a seed and a flower may give the seed special properties (however, this will not work for tree seeds.) Happy Lamp: These are the small red tulip-like flowers that grow near Gustafa's hut during the month of Summer. Feeding Tartan a seed and a Happy Lamp flower will allow the seed grow in any season. Gemsoil: These are the golden flowers that grow near the ruins in the month of Fall. Feeding Tartan a seed and a Gemsoil flower will allow the seed to be planted anywhere. This is very useful for second and third generation crops, as they can normally only be planted in semi-fertile or very fertile soil. Upseed: These flowers are rare, but very, very useful! They are the orange and yellow flowers that grow in various places during the month of Winter (you can find one on the path to the ruins and another near Cody's house.) Feeding a seed of B or A quality and an Upseed flower to Tartan will result in an S-rank seed. This isn't the only way to make seeds a higher quality, though: mixing an S-rank seed with an A or B rank will probably do the trick, too! Hybrids None of the hybrids have English names, so they will have to go by their Japanese names for now. 1st generation refers to the "normal" plants (tomato, watermelon, turnip, etc.) 2nd generation refers to the hybrids made of the 1st generation plants. 3rd generation refers to hybrids made of the 2nd generation plants. Tartan lets you assign 3rd generation plants a name! 2nd generation - crops Plant 1 Plant 2 Result Season(s) Time to Grow Tomato Watermelon Gretoma Spring-Fall 8 days Tomato Strawberry Berrytoma Spring-Fall 7 days Tomato Melon Melotoma Spring-Fall 10 days Tomato Turnip Trady Spring-Fall 8 days Tomato Potato Tobatama Spring-Fall 8 days Tomato Carrot Tomaca Spring-Fall 8 days Tomato Sweet Potato Yamato Spring-Fall 7 days Turnip Potato Radita Winter-Spring 6 days Turnip Sweet Potato Kandy Winter-Summer 5 days Turnip Carrot Cady Winter-Spring 7 days Watermelon Strawberry Berryber Spring-Summer 9 days Watermelon Melon Melober Spring-Summer 8 days Watermelon Turnip Raury Spring-Summer 9 days Watermelon Potato Bashber Spring-Summer 8 days Watermelon Sweet Potato Kashry Spring-Summer 8 days Watermelon Carrot Cabber Spring-Summer 9 days Melon Turnip Dhilon Summer-Fall 10 days Melon Potato Potamelo Summer-Fall 9 days Melon Carrot Camelo Summer-Fall 7 days Melon Sweet Potato Sholo Summer-Fall 7 days Strawberry Melon Berryto Fall-Spring 8 days Strawberry Turnip Dhibe Fall-Spring 5 days Strawberry Potato Paberita Fall-Spring 8 days Strawberry Carrot Caberry Spring-Fall 7 days Strawberry Sweet Potato Berryto Fall-Spring 8 days Carrot Sweet Potato Kanro Summer-Fall 6 days Potato Carrot Tataro Winter-Summer 8 days Potato Sweet Potato Bashota Winter-Summer 6 days 2nd generation - trees Fruit 1 Fruit 2 Result Season Days to Mature Apple Orange Oraphu Spring 16 Apple Banana Appage Fall 16 Apple Peach Phurum Fall 19 Banana Peach Magerum Winter 18 Banana Orange Magenge Winter 15 Grape Apple Phuju Summer 17 Grape Orange Orahge Summer 18 Grape Banana Gehju Summer 18 Grape Peach Jurum Fall 20 Orange Peach Lanmunge Fall 18 3rd Generation - crops Notes on the third generation: 3rd generation plants have no name, although some of them might look quite similar to certain crops that you can't buy from Vesta's farm (for example, peanuts and eggplant are among the 3rd generation crops!) When Tartan creates a third generation crop, he asks you to assign a name to it. Since there are no set names for these crops, I will be numbering them. There are 24 altogether. Also, there are multiple ways to make third generation crops! Some of them only have one fixed "recipe", but the others are more open. 3rd Gen.

You choose which girl you want to marry, and marry her at the end of this chapter. (Muffy, Nami, or Celia.) You already have everything needed to run a farm, it's your goal in this chapter (and all the rest) to make the best of your farm, and get new equipment and animals! You can begin building friendships with the villagers, friendships that will last a lifetime. 2 - Happy Birthday 2 years long. Begins about 3 years after the end of chapter 1. You and your wife have a child, who is already a toddler. You can pick up your child and play with him! Your house has been added on to. Hugh has become a little bigger, and his clothing changed a bit. Grant, Samantha, and Kate have moved in. The ruins have become bigger. Van sells toys for your child, as well as goats now. You can get the Seed Maker starting in this chapter. You can also get Tartan starting in this chapter. Ducks may show up at your farm starting in this chapter, too. Galen has moved. 3 - Happy Harvesting 3 years long. Begins a few years after the end of chapter 2. Your child is a little older, now. You can give him gifts. Your house has been added on to again. Hugh is a teenager. His clothing and attitude have changed. Lumina is an adult. Her clothing and the tune she plays at the piano have changed. You can buy Daachan from Van. The ruins have grown. 4 - Happy Farm Life 2 years long. Begins a few years after the end of chapter 3. Your child is a teenager. Your house is bigger. You have aged, as have most people in the valley. Hugh and Kate are adults. Their clothing and attitudes have changed. The ruins have grown again. 5 - The Journeying Chapter (Tabidachi no Shou) 1 year long. Begins a few years after the end of chapter 4. Your child is now an adult. The ruins are even bigger. Your child falls in love with either Kate or Lumina. 6 - The Twilight Chapter (Tasogare no Shou) 1 year long. You've aged again. Many other people have aged, too. Your son is now sure of what he wants to do with his life. 9 Fishing (fishy) Before you can fish, you must acquire the Fishing Rod from Van, which can be bought for 500G. Simply equip it as if it were a tool, stand by a body of water, and press A. Wait until you start hearing little plopping noises and the screen shakes just slightly -- that alerts you that a fish is biting. Wait until the water splashes and you hear a larger plopping noise to press A to reel the fish in. Be careful not to press A too early or you'll lose your catch! I think a good way to control it, is to wait until it splashes and say "one one thousand" out loud or to yourself then press A, it always works for me, but it may take once or twice. There are four areas where you can fish: Upstream, downstream, the spring, and the swamp. The river that runs through the valley just next to Vesta's farm is home to the upstream and downstream areas -- the upstream area would be the area near the waterfall, or the upper half of the river. The downstream area would be the southern half of the river. As for the spring, it's located up in the forest area where the "lamp" trees thrive, and the Harvest Sprites refer to it as a Goddess Pond. The swamp area is near Cody's house, where the neat little turtle likes to hang out. Fish can be only sold to Van while he's at his shop. They may also be given as gifts.

He always comes on the 3rd and 8th of each month, though he'll usually stop by on random days between those dates. He sets up shop by the Mitemi Inn. The time he opens his shop varies, but he always closes it at 6PM. Selling to Van Van will buy anything, and I mean anything, from you! Vegetables, tools, flowers, herbs, seeds, things you've found in the ruins, mistakes that you cooked... you name it, he'll buy it. His prices differ greatly, and you can haggle with him (just tell him the first price he named wasn't high enough) so I won't bother listing selling prices. Things like seeds tend to sell for half of what you paid for it (making tree seeds a great thing to sell to him! You can make lots of money if you have a tree and a seed maker.) Buying from Van There are a few things Van has in stock all the time, but there are some things that change from chapter to chapter. Note that this list is not quite complete. I also don't remember the prices of everything... sorry about that. Things you can buy from the start of the game: Brush (500G) Fishing Rod (500G) Fatigue-curing potion (750G) Strength-giving potion (750G) Hyper strength-giving potion (1000G) If you have connected with Friends of Mineral Town... Record 1 (Spring Breeze - SNES Harvest Moon spring theme) (430G) Chapter 2 and beyond Starting in chapter 2, Van starts selling toys for your child: blocks, a ball, and a car. Goat (4000G, spring only) Ball (???G - under 500G) Wooden Car (???G - under 500G) Blocks (???G - under 500G) If you have connected with Friends of Mineral Town...

At first, you'll only be able to make salads and soups, but after you've made a certain amount of dishes (around 23), two other categories will be opened up to you. 'Entrees' will come a little while later. Once you have all the menus available, some people in the village will comment on how great of a cook you've become! To make a dish, you must first select the correct category for the dish. (e.g., if you want to make Sashimi, don't select Sweets!) Then you can use up to three items to make the dish you want. A lot of the recipes require you to use 3rd generation crops, and since those aren't named, you'll have to reference the hybrid crops section on this site to see which is which. I've numbered all the crops. On ones that have something like, "tomato, special produce" listed twice, using two tomatoes won't work, sorry! You'll have to use 1 tomato and 1 vegetable from special produce, or 2 different vegetables from special produce. Using 2 of the same vegetable/fruit/fish/whatever in a recipe will not work! (Yam Soup is the only exception.) Instead of writing down what 1st and 2nd generation crops count as a vegetable, root vegetable, or whatever on each recipe, I'll just do it here: Root Vegetable: Carrot, sweet potato, potato, turnip, all special root vegetables (unconfirmed). Fruit: Orange, banana, peach, grape, apple, watermelon, melon, strawberry, all 2nd generation trees. Special Produce: Gretoma, melotoma, trady, tomaca, berrytoma, raury, cabber, dhilon, camelo, dyibe, kyaberi. Special Root Vegetables: Yamato, tobatama, kandy, cady, radita, kanro, bashota, tataro. Special Fruits: All 2nd generation trees, melober, kashry, berryber, bashber, sholo, beriro, potamelo, berryto, paberita. Wild Plants: Mugworts (grow in spring), royal fern (grows in summer), bracken (those rather large, brown... things that grow in fall), sorrel (grow in winter.) Mushrooms: Hackberry (those green plants that grow every day on your farm in fall), trumpets, matsutake (there are two behind Vesta's farm in fall.) Fish: All fish!

The Milking Room - 60,000g ~ The cows basicly go inside everyday and milk themselves, I think it's a waste of money, because it only takes an in game hour to milk, if even, so if you have the 60,000g, congrats, but I'd DEFINATLY get the Food Processing Room. The Food Processing Room - 30,000g ~ This is a big profit maker. Here you can turn Cow milk into yummy butter, and I think something else, but I'm not for sure exactly what else you can make the milk. Every chapter your house gets bigger. 13 FAFQ ~ Frequently Asked Farming Questions (FAFQ) What are all the different plants that grow in the seasons? Good question... Spring (Keep your MUGWORT!!
