Her diary is in the left hand room on the second floor in the Inners Inn, which Ruby and Tim run, along with there odd-ball of a son Rock. You can only see her diary at certain times of the day though. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* *~ Now thats the wifes out of the way, ~* *~ now heres the rest of them!

Tim Well I dont know a lot about Tim, but what I do know is this, He and his wife Ruby and son Rock have travelled the world and finally ended up in Forget- Me-Not Valley, he runs The Inners Inn and knows a lot about cooking. Rock Rock is Tims son, he likes to party, he lives with his mum and dad in the Inners Inn. There is not much really to say about him. Gustafa One of my favourite characters Gustafa is a poet and a musician, his house is like a tent, become friends with him and he will give you this really cool cool sickle which looks like it has blood on it!! ( COOL or what??) go to his house during summer and you will get a scene where you and other town folk are singing with him, this is the summer festival!! Daryl Daryl is the town MAD scientist (empathise on mad!), he conducts lots of experiments in his house which to me looks like a princess castles meet Frankensteins house, during year 1 (the first year when you get a wife! if you are good friends with him and you visit him at 1pm 2 pm there will be a little movie scene where he is going mad saying people are stealing his ideas, he will give you a seed maker. (this is a reason why hes a Favourite character of mine, he saves you 6000g!!) he likes fish that you catch, especially snelts!

In the trial year he and Nina live next to Wally, Chris and Hughes House, Nina and Galen are grandparents to Hugh. I am Unsure who they are parents to, I think it is Chris but Im unsure! *Sebastian Sebastian is Romanas butler, he has been her butler for many years and enjoys his work. When you first meet him (hes in his room, its the second door that you come to, on the side with the piano!) go up to the picture on the dressing table, and he will say something and you can choose what to say, reply with is that Romana? and he will reply yes, and tell you some secrets. He lives in the Villa with Romana. *Murrey Ok here is the scruff of the valley. I cant help but constantly help feeling Sorry for this character, as he has a wife and kids in a place called Po-Po Valley, Murrey can found wondering Forget-Me-Not Valley.

I think it once a month!) or to say NO (he become upset and never returns there again!). Ok thats all I know on him, but if any one how is further knows whether or not he eventually leaves Forget-Me-Not Valley or not please contact me and I will add it a.s.a.p. you will find how to contact me in the COTNACT ME chapter. Grant - Grant comes in the second chapter, he moves in with his wife Samantha And daughter Kate. All I know about this character is that he works in Mineral Town, and he is a business man. Van Van the travailing sales man, hum other than being able to sell nearly absolutely anything to him and buying stuff from him he does nothing else. In the trail year he sell you some tools, in the first year he sells you toys for Your child and a goat. Thats all really. Hardy Oh I hate this character, I absolutely despise him!!

Romana Romana is coming to the end of her long lived life and well I dont want her to go, she gets out when she can and trys to help anyone in anyways possible. When you get really good friends with her she gives you the Watering CanW.

Takakura's House Takakura lives here, but most of the time he's not home. He's always wondering around town so don't expect him taking a nap when you walk in. Food Storage Room You can store food in here, ship your dairy products, order animals+tools+items+ upgrade buldings, and ship vegetables after getting 2nd generation crops. Dog House You never have to put your dog to his house, but you can set food for your dog here in his food tray. Home There is your castle and here you go to sleep, save, cook, watch tv, read info on game tips, play your music records. Your child and wife will stay with you in your home once you're married (starting 2nd year). Chicken Coop This is where chikens go, you can put chiken feed in there to feed them.

Also a switch is located outside on the Barn letting all the animals outside in the sun keeping them happy. Water Bring your animals next to it to wash them with the brush. Fields Un-Fertilized - I would use this for the crops Fertilized Field I would use this for the crops Very-Fertilized Field I would use this to plant the tree in! _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- P3.2 ..::*Animal Care*::..

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 will cost nothing to have it seeded. - Cross breeding is possible between Normal, Brown, Marble and Star cows. (Chicken) - In order to incubate eggs you must have a hen and a rooster with a fertilized egg. - Before buying a chicken make sure you have enough money to buy the Chicken Feed (chicken feed must be ordered from the Food Storage Room). - Taking good care of chickens can result in Golden Eggs, which sell for 300G each. - Eggs take 5 days to hatch & it takes baby chicks another 5 days before they can mature. (Sheep) - They are clipped once a season (be sure to have a pair of clippers/shears). - Keeping them in great condition results in Golden Wool (hug it twice a day). - Keep in mind that Sheeps cannot be sold. - Don't bother your sheep if they are sleeping. - Wash it & Brush it! (Horse) - Randomly given to you by Takakura anytime of the year. - Keep it outside when nice out, Ride it, Wash it. - Be sure to feed it everyday, brush & talk to it. - Drastically shortens the time getting around town by riding it. - Don't bother your horse if they are sleeping. (Goats) - Van sells goats in Chapter 2, Spring (each spring every year) (costs 4500G), but you can hagle with van to gte it for cheaper, just reject his prices, i think it 2000 you can get it for so keep me informed if anyone knows. Thankies - Gives milk for about one year - Don't bother your goats if they are sleeping - Brush & Wash it (Ducks) - A Pond must be built during Chapter 1 (ordered/bought from storage room). - Must be raising less than 6 chickens - You can choose weather or not to keep them or not - Placing some of the eggs in the incubator can hatch ducks instead of chikens. - Can be sold for 500G.

Tools are some of the games most important items. So youll need to be careful of what does what so you dont end up chopping down that 1800g banana tree. Coming soon! _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- P5 ..::*SEEDS*::.. |-------------------------------------------------------------------------| | Spring | Summer | Fall | Winter | |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~| |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~| | Tomato | Tomato | Tomato | ------ | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | Watermelon | Watermelon | Watermelon | ------ | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | Strawberry | ------ | Strawberry | Strawberry | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | ------ | Turnip | Turnip | Turnip | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | ----- | Melon | Melon | ----- | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | Potato | ------ | ------ | Potato | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | ------ | ------ | Carrot | Carrot | |------------------|------------------|----------------|------------------| | ------------ | ------------ | Sweet Potato | ------------ | |-------------------------------------------------------------------------| - Crops can be used more for making home cooked meals. - Don't buy seeds that belong in a different season, they wont grow. - You can water your plants more than once a day (watering more makes it grow faster). - Fertilizer helps make high grade vegetables (Grade-A, Grade-S)(sells for more $). a. (Fertilizer) - Fertilizing is expensive but it is well worth it because when you use S-Level vegetables in the seed-maker, you'll get S-Level seeds to grow S-Level crops. - Plow->Fertilizer->Plant Seed (A-Grade 4X, S-Grade 8X) - The more Fertilizer you use the higher the Grade of vegetable (don't overuse). - Water as much as you can. b. (Planting) XOXOXOX - Plant in Checkered formation (results in faster growth & less watering). OXOXOXO - 3rd generation crops + sweet potatoes in checkered formation. XOXOXOX - Every other crop can be bunched up together. c. (Trees) - Can be planted any time of the year - Keep crops 2 spaces away (failing will result in dead crops) - Plant them in the smaller fields (add fertilizer) - Trees take 30X of Fertilizer for S-Grade fruits - Although fruits make ok profit, the seeds go for alot of $money$ so after getting the seed-maker, take the fruits and put them through the seed-maker resulting in bags of seeds which can be sold for 1000+ (save fruits for the seed-maker). d. (Watering) - You start out with a regular watering-can, but you can buy a Large Watering can which is definetly helpful so less trips are taken to the water pump. - Water twice a day (water more if you can) *(Wooden Watering Can) - grows trees much faster - become good friends with Romana for it e. (Tools) - Just like every HM game, you can upgrade your tools, but here we can go ahead and just buy the upgraded ones (example. Heavy Hoe, Hoe, Light Hoe). - Pros & Cons. Heavier tools builds up stamina, but makes you tired faster. Lighter tools lets you work more, but takes longer to build stamina. _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- P9 FAQ Q. What does the locked room do? A.
