8.Caring for animals and seeds*
Cows: You MUST feed, talk to, and brush them everyday. It also helps if you 
take them for walks.

Chickens: For some odd reason my chickens like it when I pick them up. You 
MUST feed them everyday.

Chics: They don't need to be fed until their grown so just leave them alone.

Seeds: You MUST water them everyday

Grass: The only thing you have to do with grass is plant it and cut it.

*= Your animals will probably not produce anything after typhoon in summer, 
thats okay just give them time and they will. Just feed them all and brush and 
talk to the cows and they'll be fine.

Harvest Goddess: The mysterious woman that lives in the goddess spring. ALWAYS 
tell the truth to her.
Grandfather: On the 30th day of winter he will evaluate you.
Harvest Sprites: The odd beings that live under your equipment shed. Give them 
mushrooms and ALWAYS tell them the truth.

house: You start and end everyday here.

12.Strategy and Tips
A: use tool equiped, pick up things, or talk to people
B: cancel menu options, run, or jump
Select: pauses game, call horse or pet
Start: Switch between tools
D- Pad: Used to move you character

Seed Design:
To get the most out of you seeds have them grow like this:

X X             XXX 
XXX     or      X X
XXX             XXX 

The first one's good if you have the water can. If you have the sprinkler  the 
second one's great for non-rgenerating plants. Just water them until 
you can't get to the inside one then water the outside ones then when their 
done pick them to get to the inside one, and just water the inside one to 
get it. That way you can get all nine of them.

Seed planting:
Plant them near water holes that are near the shipping crate until you get the 
sprinkler. When you get the sprinkler plant them near the crate. 

Harvest Sprites:
Always give the one in the main room one, if not two, mushrooms a day. They'll 
give you two power berries and two super tools.

Before you are able to get a cow or chicken you must have enough grass. So 
plant some as soon as you can. Also try and get a cow and chicken as soon 
as you can.

Always buy a chicken and raise 3 more. 

Be agreeable:
ALWAYS agree with people, even if you think their wrong. This is the way to 
get the things you want.

Tell the truth:
ALWAYS tell the thruth to the sprites and Harvest Goddess. 

First day: Clear your farm on the first day of Spring on the first year.

Hoe your field:
Hoe your intire field with the super hoe.

Super Tools:
To get most of the super tools give the Harest Sprites mushrooms.

Super hammmer:
To get the super hammmer just remodel your house.

13.Codes, Secrets, and Glitches
Super axe:
To get the super axe chop the goddess spring after the earthquake.

dog, cat?:
Durning some part of your game your dog may turn into a cat or vice, versa. It 
should reverte back quickly. If he stays like this just work with it.

What's in name?
Whats in the first part of your name choses what seeds you can plant.

lower case letter:you'll be able to plant peanuts in fall and broccoli in 
upper case letter: eggplants in fall and carrots in winter
symbol: eggplants and peanuts in fall and carrots and broccoli in winter.

What's in a heart?:
If you put a heart in the first part of the girls name you'll have some 
extra things in the shed. 

The golden chicken:
To get the golden chicken you must trade two grown chickens via the game 
cable. There's a slim chance you'll get it.

14.Future Plans
I may put a walkthrough in this, but since the game can always change I 
don't know if I will. If you have any ideas to make this better feel free
