Greenhouse Layouts

#1mongaloogyPosted 8/23/2009 7:43:45 AM
Out of pure curiosity...

How does everyone utilize their greenhouse space in order to get the most crops?

My guess is that there is a previous post about this and I'm square enough (or... not square enough) to have not checked.

You know, even if you just fill half the green house with tomatoes/corn you'll be wealthy enough. No reason to "max" out the greenhouse in my opinion.

Unless you want to get that favorable review from the shipper which most people seem to miss out on.

Water Enter Shipping


I use the above. =P It's not technically the most efficient, but It's the least mindnumbingly boring for me. O_o I usually plant 3 plots of corn, 3 plots of tomatoes, and 2 plots of eggplant using the "main" middle parts, with the top left corner spot reserved for an "everything" plot where I plant one of each plantable thing (because it amuses me, and usually I have money to burn once I get to this point anyway.)

On the edges I plant spring crops (2 of each) and the extreme top left corner plots I reserve for 3 sets of strawberries. I don't know if that all made sense, but that's pretty much my layout.

I have gotten the shipper's approval many times with this layout. It's simply a matter of shipping a lot of everything. =P

One of those two. Very efficient, you only have to move up the 1st and 3rd columns in order to water everything. The right one allows for more non-renewable crops for a little variety if you'd like. The left one makes some more money. Even with the left one, I like to grow one plot of strawberries year round in the upper left corner (even though I could actually make more money off of a plot of 7 on a renewable crop). I grow mostly corn since it's essentially equal money to tomatoes with less work involved. I've yet to see somebody post a setup that I thought would work better without sacrificing a lot of profits or make significantly more money. Although, I did see somebody (I forget who, I wanna say Rift or SCG) post a setup that I now use outdoors all time (it works well there thanks to the horse).

That's my setup outside in the first summer. The top right corner of which being in the corner of your farm that has the tree containing the treasure map. Watering is a breeze, even with the silver watering can (you won't have gold when you begin the summer unless you cheated). And when you do get gold, you can just water from the outside instead of the inside. Either way, it's pretty fast, especially with the well right nearby. I close off the 3 paths inside with logs and keep my horse inside of there for very speedy shipping. It's also nice not to have to find the horse to brush him and stuff everyday. I do go with mostly tomatoes in the first summer though. Gets me money a little quicker, plus in insures I'll make enough to buy a Greenhouse, crops to fill it with, and a bunch of grass to plant before fall. Also, since the plants outside all die come fall, my the "tomatoes and corn are basically the same in the long run" logic doesn't really apply outside of the Greenhouse.
