to learn from experience.It wasn`t that fun.So i`m not gonna put you through

Get it at Ganon`s shop.
Taro will present you with a free pet cow when you buy this.

Building Bridges:
This cost alot of money, but it`s well worth the price.
Go to Ganon`s Shop to build the bridges.
The first bridge you will unlock leads to a big open feild.

Getting a Kitchen is important if you want to make meals for 
your family.

I know what your thinking......Isn`t that what my feild is for?
You can use the greenhouse for planting out of season crops.
Like a spring crop in winter.You can buy this at Ganon`s, but it cost ALOT.

Money Tips

When you first start out your pretty much poor.
Picking the weeds and putting them in the shipping bins will get you enough 
money until you get a fishing pole.
To get a fishing pole you need to become friends with Taro.
(the old man you meet at the beginning of the game)
If you give him some of that colored Grass everyday 
(you know that stuff on the ground that looks like hearts)
You can become friends with him

You also need to talk to him at least once a day.
It won`t take to long when he gives you a fishing pole.
He`ll knock on the door one day and give you the fishing pole.
Fish is about the best way to get money.
Sell your fish by putting them in the shipping bin.
You can sell just about anything.
Selling the rocks and logs you find on the ground is a good idea too.
Once you get Ganon to build the Bridge to the forest, you can find the 
digging mines.
This is also a good idea to get money.
The gems you find in the ground are worth quite a bit.
Also, you might want to give the gems to your future husband or wife!
(If they like that stuff xD)

Getting Food
Getting food is probly a good idea. xD
I don`t think you want to starve.
Now, the main thing you eat is the colored grass.
(Yah the heart shaped things on the ground.You`ve heard me talk about it 
You can also eat fish.
(But i would sell those instead)
You can also eat mushrooms  in the Fall, but not the white ones!
They`ll make you sick.
You can also eat your crops, but you probly need to save those.
You can sell these, Make recipes with them, and you can enter them in 


About fishing
After you get the fishing pole, you will be busy fishing alot.
Fishing can sometimes be frustrating.
Alot of times you`1l pull your fishing pole in and it`ll say "It got away." 
It takes awhile to get the technique right.
You have to pull it up at a certain time.
Pull it up when your person pulls the pole about 1 
and a half times.If this doesn`t help, I`m sorry.
You`ll eventually get it.
Some things are realy rare and some things are just average.Here`s all the fish 
I have caught.

About Mines
Mines are important to learn about.
Here you can dig up Gems, Stairs, Pitfalls,and Money.
First of all, Pitfalls are very dangerouse!
If you fall in one you will lose almost all your Stamina and will have to go to 
sleep for the day.
Don`t walk in a place where you haven`t dug.
There could be a pitfall there.
Stairs are a good thing to find.
When you find them, go down them and you`ll be in another room.
This is where you can find the gems.The big gray rocks are the gems.
You need to take your hammer and break them.
You`ll get the gems out of the grey rocks. (duh xD)
There`s not much to learn about this part.
But you can unlock Sabrina and 
her dad by digging up and shipping 20 items from the mines.
You can also use the gems for machines parts if you have the maker shed.

How to Care for Animals
They need to be fed once a day.
You don`t have to feed them if your in the feild.
But you have to of planted grass seeds in the feild.
They can`t eat dirt!
Make sure you brush and milk them once a day.
You can buy cows at the Animal Shop Once you have a Barn.

They need to be fed once a day.
They like it when you pick them up.
If you put them in the feild, TAKE THEM BACK IN AT NIGHT!
If you leave them outside at night, wild dogs will attack them!
So be careful.
Buy these at the Animal shop after you have gotten the Chicken Coop.

The sheep do not appear in Mirabelle's shop until after you have unlocked 
2 or more boy farmer sub-villagers. 
The sheep you purchase from her will be child-size, and you must wait 15 days 
for it to mature. Each sheep costs 4000 G.

They need to be fed and brushed once a day.They like to be rode on sunny days.
Chen and Charlie will give you the horse Once you have become friends with them

Feed your dog once a day.
Your dog won`t like you if you keep it in the stable all the time.
Let it outside to make it happy.
Find the dog by walking in the West part of town.
(Where the Witch Princess lives.)
You must be friends with Mirabelle first though.

What Garbage does
Garbage is the fish bones and the cans and stuff you find in the river and 
You can also find garbage in the mines.
Weeds count as garbage.
When you catch garbage in the rivers and 
ocean, it`s realy good.
It cleans out the watyer and brings in more fish.
I bet you didn`t know that, eh?
Never throw garbage on the ground, it will lower everyone's friendship points.

Surviving the Winter
Thw winter is the hardest season to go through.
All the food on the ground dies, So you don't have to sell all fish! XD
From spring-fall you need to harvest as much food as possible.
It`s also hard if your trying to marry someone.
All the flowers are dead so you will have to harvest all the flowers before the 
Once you run out of flowers trying giving your sweetheart some 
That is also hard to get.
If you stop selling your fish to eat them, you won`t have as much money as 
Trying digging up gems instead of selling fish.
The only food you can find is on the very top of the mountain.
It is white grass.

Sometimes when you talk to Taro, he`ll say that there is going to be a huge 
storm the next day.
And he`s not kidding!
To prepare for the storm, just make sure you have enough food in your pockets 
for the next day.
The next day, you can`t go outside because of the storm.
(Beware, it will destroy your crops! O_O)
Eat as much food as you need, and then go to sleep.
(There`s no need to stand their all day!Besides the time doesn`t change when 
your in the house)

Your animals may get sick the next day.

Your Birthday
When you first make a file, someone will ask you when your Birthday is.
yes your Birthday will be on the Calender, but don`t get all excited!
I was so excited when my birthday came around on Harvest Moon....
But guess what?Nothing happens!
Yep that`s right.
No party, no presents, and no happy birthdays from your friends!
So just ignore your birthday until you are married.

After your married, walk into your at 6:00 pm.
Then you can celebrate!

Getting Married
To get married, you need to have a Husbands/Wifes bed in your house.
You have to upgrade your house at least 2 times.
(Do this at Ganon`s Shop)
After you have had 3 scenes with them, wait until you get a Red Heart with, them 
and then ask them to marry you.
Do this buy giving them a blue feather.
(Get this at Chen`s shop when you have someone at a Orange heart.)

To make someone like you, you need to talk to them at least 2 times a day.
And make sure you give them a present everyday.
Also, on their B-days give them presents to realy make them like you.
There are holidays where boys give presents to girls and girls give presents to 
Make sure you give a special present to them on those days as well!
When you talk to someone you can marry, there will be a heart next to their 
As they grow to like you more, that heart changes colors.
Here are what some of the colors mean:

Grey Heart:Just Friends
Purple Heart:Hmm...looks like someones got a crush on you!

Cheat #1:

Cheat #2:
You can`t get a purple heart with Vaughn until Year 2.

Cheat #3:
Elliot and Julia like each other.

                               -Q & A-
Q: I have a question about Shea: In the diary where hearts appear, he has 
little red hearts like he is supposed to, but when i talk to him, he does not 
have a beating heart next to him. Is that a problem or just a glitch?
-Dialga4 (Marie)
A: Yes, Shea is a "special" Bachelore, so his heart color is invisible. His 
heart will become visible after marriage.


Q:Do you have any other Harvest Moon games?

-Tracy Swink 

A:YES!I have AnWL, N64, ToT, and DS Cute.


Q:I have 10 red hearts in the diary with Shea, but when i try to propose, he 
says he can't eat a feather. What do i do?


A:Before you can marry, you need to have your house upgraded at least 2 
times.You need to have three scenes with him before you can marry.Even though 
you have a red heart, it`s not to late to have the scenes.If you don`t know 
what the scenes are, keep watching for my soon to be made How to Marry Shea 


Q: i have harvest moon:island of hapiness for the nintindo ds. i just have 1 
question as of right now. i'm trying to marry the witch princess but she dosent 
have a heart icon next to her picture. i was just wondering if you can still 
marry her? i ask this because i also have harvest moon ds. and in that one you 
can only marry her in the japanese version. i would appreaciate it if you could 
write me back and let me know what's going on with that. my e-mail address is 


A: The Witch Princess is considered a `Special` Bachelorette.
She does not have A heart icon next to her just like Shea if your playing as a 
girl.This doesn`t mean you can`t marry her.
It`ll be harder to predict when you have the heart scenes.
But you can still marry her.
She has a heart icon next to her after you marry her
