    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~F I R S T  Y E A R~~~~~~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Spring First:
    -------------
    
    Refer to 'getting started' - and the 'secrets' section for some cool tips to
    help you get going. When you gain control of your character, go to your left
    drawer and you'll get 1,000 dollars! You should now have 1.5 K, head to your
    shed and get your hammer and your hoe. Get rid of all the weeds, rocks, and
    stumps near the tool shed and the shipping box to the left. You should do 
    all
    of this in a single day. Start tilling this area now, preparing for crops.
    Also make sure you talk to the harvest sprites in the back of your shed in 
    the
    underground. This will be a MAJOR area so be nice to the sprites and feed 
    them
    everyday!
    
    Spring Second:
    --------------
    
    Continue tilling the ground, you should now have at least a good 10 X 10 
    plot
    of land ready to be planted upon. Feed the sprites as always, and start
    putting the pieces of wood in the wood-box. You should do this all night, 
    and
    get at least half of it deposited. Soon you will begin growing crops.
    
    Spring Third:
    -------------
    
    This is the final day of preperation, so make it snappy! First feed the 
    dudes
    in the cave then spend the rest of the day tilling, chopping, gathering, and
    collecting. You should now have all the wood gathered, at least 100 pieces.
    
    Spring Fourth:
    --------------
    
    Go to the stores and buy 1 bag of grass, and as many potatoes as you can
    afford. Plant them near the delivery bin, and head to your shed. Talk to
    the first sprite and you get a free power berry! You'll eat it, don't
    worry though it's ok. Water your crops, and finish anything you didn't the
    last 3 days (EG: Wood gathering). Spend the whole nite tilling squares of
    land, as you need 1600 at the least to get a neat prize at the end of the
    year!
    
    Spring Fifth:
    -------------
    
    The usual grind...water your crops, feed the sprites, continue on tilling
    the ground, and chopping those tree stumps...you should have about 1/4 of
    the land done by now! Tommorow will be a fun day...or not.
    
    Spring Sixth:
    -------------
    
    Water your plants ASAP, not the grass does NOT need water. Then feed the
    sprites and take the rest of your time gathering wood if you haven't
    gotten it all. Take the time today not to hoe but to clear the land, so
    you can hoe tommorow!
    
    Spring Seventh:
    ---------------
    
    I'm not going to tell you to water your crops and harvest them, and buy
    new crops every day, it's simply un-needed. Therefore, water your crops
    everyday, ship them when they grow, and then buy more that day and
    plant them immdeiatly! Also buy 2 more grass bags when you have the cash
    to do so. Go behind your house in the small 2 X 5 area and hoe. You'll
    find a power berry and eat it! This will improve your happiness rating!
    Feed the sprite on the left 2 mushrooms a day from now on, he'll help
    you later. Now use your Hammer and Axe the rest of the day, and keep
    clearing out your land. Slowly but surely you'll get this done! Get to
    bed at 4 am tonight, just because i told you to!
    
    Spring Eighth:
    --------------
    
    You should have made at least some money by now, as well as have 3
    areas with grass planted! Make sure to feed the sprite on the left of
    the cave as you have been. Keep tilling the ground and the usual.
    Don't worry, in a bit cool stuff happens.
    
    Spring Ninth:
    -------------
    
    Do the usual, feed the sprite, and then head to the southwest corner
    with your hoe. Go a bit to the right to find water, hoe on the right
    side of the water and you'll find another power berry! Spend the rest
    of the day hoeing this area. It's a good 15 X 15 square and close to
    the shipping box, which is a good place for crops. Tommorow you'll
    have your biggest day yet, so get to sleep at around midnight.
    
    Spring Tenth:
    -------------
    
    You will automatically get up and exit your house, and walk up to
    a horse. This is now your horse that you can raise, train, and
    use! Don't ride him yet, as it's a bit too small. I like to name
    it beginning with a heart, just because. By now you should have
    some grass that is DARK green. That means it is ready to be picked!
    Use the sickle to do so, and then head to the shop and buy your
    very own chicken! The shopkeeper will take it to the farm for you
    and put it in the chicken coop! Head back to your farm, feed the
    chicken, and then spend the rest of the day doing your normal
    deeds. When i say this i mean (Feed the harvest sprite, Till the
    ground, water\buy crops). Note that you must have 5 squares of
    grass planted to buy a chicken.
    
    Spring Eleventh:
    ----------------
    
    Get up, and execute your normal farming deeds. Then head to the
    chicken coop and look! It's an egg! For each chicken you have
    you get one egg PER day if you feed them every day. These sell
    for $70 each and make it so you don't need so many crops. Put
    the egg in the hatching area for now, don't sell it. Finish off
    the day with more of the same - i don't even need to say it.
    
    Spring Twelveth:
    ----------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the sprite, then go to the chicken coop
    and feed it with one bail of grass, collect the new egg that
    was layed and put it in the bin for a nice $70 dollar profit.
    Spend the rest of the day tilling the ground nearby. You will
    have about 1/4 of it done by now, completly cleared. At least
    you should. You should also find a few dollars here and there
    in the ground. There are coins worth $50 and bags worth $100.
    If your lucky you just might even find a power berry! Go to
    sleep tonight at 12.
    
    Spring Thirteenth:
    ------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the chicken, get the egg, feed the
    sprite, and then go check your wood count. You should be
    around 200+ pieces currently. If not, what have you been
    doing all this time? Head to the shops and buy a few crops,
    but make sure you have at LEAST $2500 left when you are done.
    Talk to the carpenter, and select house upgrade. He will tell
    you that he will come visit you tommorow and tell you what is
    needed for the job. Spend the rest of the day planting, watering
    and tilling the ground.
    
    Spring Fourteenth:
    ------------------
    
    The carpenter will come out and talk to you. He will ask you if
    you want a upgrade for $2500 and 100 materials (wood). Say yes.
    Your house will be upgraded in 3 days. Spend the rest of the day
    doing normal duties (Feed the sprites, chicken, harvest crops,
    egg, water, plant, hoe, chop, smash) It does get a bit repetative
    in the spring but it's well worth it!
    
    Spring Fifteenth:
    -----------------
    
    Water the crops, and feed the sprites first. Head to the chicken
    coop and the egg will have hatched into a baby chick! Now put the
    new egg in the hatching bin and put 2 pieces of grass into the food
    tray now. Finish up the day doing the usual. Hurry quick as your
    halfway through spring and have many things left to get done! Get
    to bed around 12 PM as usual.
    
    Spring Sixteenth:
    -----------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the chick and chicken, do the usual. Nothing
    special today. Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Seventeenth:
    -------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the chick and chicken, do the usual. Nothing
    special today. Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Eighteenth:

    Water the crops, feed the chick and chicken, do the usual. Nothing
    special today. Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Nineteenth:
    ------------------
    
    Do the usual watering and buying of the crops. Head to the chicken
    coop and the 2nd egg has hatched! Now you need to use 3 pieces of
    grass per day. Feel free to skip today, and sell the egg for $70.
    
    Spring Twentieth:
    -----------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the chicks and chicken, and put the final
    egg in the hatching area. Do the usual. Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Twenty-First:
    --------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the chicks and chicken, do the usual. Make
    sure you feed the sprites and such. Get to bed at 12 PM. Note that
    you should not buy anything else from the stores until otherwise
    noted.
    
    Spring Twenty-Second:
    ---------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed the chicks and chicken, do the usual. Make
    sure you feed the sprites and such. Get to bed at 12 PM. Note that
    you should not buy anything else from the stores until otherwise
    noted.
    
    Spring Twenty-Third:
    --------------------
    
    Water the crops if you have any. Feed the sprite and deposit the
    other mushroom for an easy $100. Head to the chicken coop and you
    will now have 2 chickens, 1 chick, and one on the way! Now you
    get 2 new eggs per day! Joy! Spend the rest of the day working on
    what little land you have left to hoe\clear. Hurry up though!
    
    Spring Twenty-Fourth:
    ---------------------
    
    Water the crops if you have any. Feed the sprite and deposit the
    other mushroom for an easy $100. Head to the chicken coop and you
    will now have 2 chickens, and 2 chicks! Now you have 2 eggs per
    day, and need to use 4 piece of grass per day. Spend the rest of
    the day working on what little land you have left to hoe\clear.
    Hurry up though!
    
    Spring Twenty-Fifth:
    --------------------
    
    Water the crops if you have any. Feed the sprite and deposit the
    other mushroom for an easy $100. Head to the chicken coop and it
    is still the same, but you still need to take care of business.
    Spend the rest of the day working on what little land you have
    left to hoe\clear. Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Twenty-Sixth:
    --------------------
    
    It will rain today so you do not need to water the crops. More
    time for other things! Quickly feed the sprite and deposit the
    other mushroom for an easy $100. Head to the chicken coop and
    it is still the same, but you still need to take care of
    business. Head above your house and hoe just behind your back
    'yard' if you haven't allready. You'll get another power berry!
    Spend the rest of the day working on what little land you have
    left to hoe\clear. Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Twenty-Seventh:
    ----------------------
    
    Today is one of those special days that everyone loves. A girl
    will come over and ask if you two can have a picnic on your
    farm. Say yes and tommorow you will have a picnic and your
    happiness will increase greatly! Water the crops if you have
    any. Feed the sprite and deposit the other mushroom for an
    easy $100. Head to the chicken coop and you'll now have 3
    chickens, and only one chick left! Now you'll get 3 eggs per
    day from now on so be sure to keep feeding them and keep all
    4 happy! Only 3 more days are left in spring, and the last
    will be mainly shopping, so spend the rest of the day working
    on what little land you have left to hoe\clear, then go to
    bed at 12 PM.
    
    Spring Twenty-Eighth:
    ---------------------
    
    Today you will have the picnic. It lasts till' 6 so you'll need
    to be REALLY quick at everything when it's over. Water the
    crops if you have any. Feed the sprite and deposit the other
    mushroom for an easy $100. take care of the chickens and the 1
    chick, then spend the rest of the time hoeing till 12 PM. You
    will only have about 2 hours left so you won't get much done
    tonight. Tommorow is another eventful day.
    
    Spring Twenty-Ninth:
    --------------------
    
    A girl will come along and want an egg. Say yes, and she'll buy
    an egg for 75 dollars. She'll want $5 back though. But it does
    increase your happiness for some reason! So i'd do it. Water
    the crops if you have any. Feed the sprite and deposit the
    other mushroom for an easy $100. You'll still have 3 chickens
    and one chick, but that's still $210 a day! Do the ususal, and
    get to bed EARLY. Say...9 PM.
    
    Spring Thirtieth:
    -----------------
    
    Get up, and head to the cave. Feed the sprite and deposit the
    other mushroom as usual. Head to the chicken coop, get the 3
    eggs sold and feed the 3 chickens and the chick. Now harvest
    all the grass you have and any crops that are fully grown.
    If they are not grown don't bother watering them as they will
    die on Summer First. Head to the shops, namely the Tool Shop
    and the Animal Shop. In the tool shop you will find the
    Sprinkler, Milker, and Brush. Buy the sprinkler, it waters a
    3 X 3 Square, and it doesn't need refills! Buy the brush and
    the milker if you can afford it. You probably can't afford a
    cow but if by some strange chance you can go ahead and buy
    one. You should now have the following:
    
    $0.00
    3 Chickens
    1 Chick
    Sickle, Super Hammer, Hoe, Axe.
    Sprinkler
    Deluxe Wood House
    3/4 land cleared AND tilled.
    4 Super Berries
    80 + Fodder
    100 + Supplies (wood)
    
    Finally, before we start the grand period of time known as
    summer, is a little art showing what land the sprinkler
    covers.
    
    X _ _ _ X
    X|_|_|_|X
    X|_|S|_|X
    X|_|_|_|X
    X X X X X
    S = Sprinkler
    X = NON-Watered Square
    
    Now that i've just wasted valuble time and space, let's get
    on with the glory days of summer!
    
    Summer First:
    -------------
    
    Head to the east corner of the land. Hoe to the left of the water
    pool and you'll find another power berry! Now till the top part
    of the land - which should have about 4 squares left. Go to the
    chicken coop and feed the 3 chickens\chick. Get the eggs and make
    sure to feed them as usual. Go to the store and buy TONS of seeds
    -- tomato seeds that is. Plant them on the area below the shipping
    box for convienience, then use the wonderful sprinkler to quickly
    water them all. All you should have left to till is the south-west
    area of land! Make sure to feed the sprite and get that $100
    shroom as well!
    
    Summer Second:
    --------------
    
    A few new things: The girl will want some change back for the egg.
    Go ahead and do it - it's only $5. Feed the sprites, water the
    tomatoes, the usual, etc. Head to the chicken coop and you now have
    4 full grown, healthy, happy chickens! From now on you get 4 eggs
    a day which is the equivilant of $280 effortless dollars per day!
    For those that can't add - that's $8,400 for the month of summer
    alone! Add in another $3000 for the mushroom plus crops and you
    have a nice, steady income! If only this were enough...get to bed
    at a decent hour..just because i'm the one in charge here!
    
    Summer Third:
    -------------
    
    Water your crops, pick the 'shrooms, finish cutting\smashing the
    remaining stumps and rocks. By now you should have the WHOLE land
    CLEARED. Not hoed - cleared. Take care of the chickens and finish
    the day by hoeing the south-east area that is the only area not
    hoed. The faster, the better, so don't slack off!
    
    Summer Fourth:
    --------------
    
    Water your crops, pick the 'shrooms, finish cutting\smashing the
    remaining stumps and rocks. By now you should have the WHOLE land
    CLEARED. Not hoed - cleared. Take care of the chickens and finish
    the day by hoeing the south-east area that is the only area not
    hoed. The faster, the better, so don't slack off!
    
    Summer Fifth:
    -------------
    
    Strong winds today - don't worry - everything will be ok tommorow.
    Get to bed, watch some TV, whatever. Nothing much to do here.
    
    Summer Sixth:
    -------------
    
    Feed the chickens, help the sprites, water your plants, etc, etc.
    Note that the chickens will not give eggs today but that's normal.
    Keep on tilling the ground, collecting some money here and there.
    Get to bed at 12 PM.
    
    Summer Seventh:
    ---------------
    
    Water your crops, pick the 'shrooms, Take care of the chickens
    and finish the day by hoeing the south-east area that is the
    only area not hoed. The faster, the better, so don't slack off!
    
    Summer Eighth:
    --------------
    
    Today it will rain, nothing else special. So pick the 'shrooms,
    take care of the chickens  and finish the day by hoeing the
    south-east area that is the only area not hoed. Nothing really
    exciting, although tommorow is a bit eventful.
    
    Summer Ninth:
    -------------
    
    EARTHQUAKE! Whoo baby, that was a big one! Ok, pick the tomatoes
    that are now grown for a HUGE profit, make sure to water them
    too after your done picking. Harvest your grass, feed the chickens
    then head to the underground. Help the sprite by breaking the rock
    ith your hammer. Then, grab the ax and throw it in the water. The
    goddess fairy will appear, say "No" to her question and you'll get
    the Golden\Super Ax!! Now do the usual afterwards, and don't
    forget the 'shrooms!
    
    Summer Tenth:
    -------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, deposit the eggs, till the same place you have been for
    the past 5 days or so. Get to bed at 12 PM. Tommorow we're going
    shopping -- and not for shoes!
    
    Summer Eleventh:
    ----------------
    
    Head south and harvest your abundant supply of tomatoes. Then
    head to the chicken coop and take care of the chickens, not to
    mention the $280 laying on the floor. Then head to the shed,
    feed the sprites, grab the sprinkler and water the crops. By
    now it should be around 3 PM. Head to the Flower Shop to the
    west. Buy 2 bags of grass, then head to the Tool Shop just
    to the left of it. Buy the brush, milker, and saddlebag. You
    should be able to afford all this. Now head back to the farm
    and plant the grass wherever you feel it is best put. Now hoe
    for a couple of hours then go to bed at 9 or so.
    
    Summer Twelveth:
    ----------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, deposit the eggs, till the same place you have been for
    the past 5 days or so. Get to bed at 12 PM. Tommorow at least it
    will do SOMETHING different. Oh well, pretty soon we go shopping
    again!
    
    Summer Thirteenth:
    ------------------
    
    Today is another harvest day! Time for tons of cash! It will also
    rain today, which is no help as you will need to water the crops
    after you harvest them anyway. Oh well, it's a change at least.
    Do your usual duties with the sprites and the chickens, at it
    will be around 5 PM by this point. Note that you should ride your
    horse down to where your crops are to make shipping faster! Then
    spend a good chunk of time hoeing, as you should be nearing
    completion of your 40+ day project. Go to bed around 1 am, and
    tommorow we go shopping for cows - oh joy!
    
    Summer Fourteenth:
    ------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, deposit the eggs, till the same place you have been for
    the past 5 days or so until it's noon. Then head to the Animal
    Shop and buy a cow (or two) if you can afford it. Name the cow(s)
    with a HEART in front of their name, i named mine (heart)MOO if
    you must know. They will be super-cows in essence, giving better
    and bigger milk! Head back to the farm and hoe, hoe, hoe till'
    your heart is content! Or..until it's midnight as usual! Don't
    forget to feed the cow(s)!
    
    Summer Fifteenth:
    -----------------
    
    Harvest your crops, using your horse and saddlebag of course!
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the eggs,
    till the same place you have been for the past 5 days. Isn't
    this getting a bit easy -- or repetative? Or both?
    
    Summer Sixteenth:
    -----------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the eggs,
    till the same place you have been for the past 5 days. Isn't
    this getting a bit easy -- or repetative? Or both? Oh and for
    those that didn't notice, it rains today! Err, who really does
    care?
    
    Summer Seventeenth:
    -------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the eggs,
    till the same place you have been for the past 5 days.

    Harvest your crops, using your horse and saddlebag of course!
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the eggs,
    till the same place you have been for the past 5 days. Isn't
    this getting a bit easy -- or repetative? Or both? Hey guess
    what? Tommorow you get to have some real fun! More shopping!
    
    Summer Nineteenth:
    ------------------
    
    OK, do the usual junk all first. Except for tilling, leave that
    for later. Once your all done with your normal duties, head to
    the animal shop and buy one more cow and and M. Potion. I have
    2 cows by now, not 3, so don't feel bad if you only have 2 cows
    as well. Use the M. Potion on the cow and in 21 days you'll have
    another cow! Spend the rest of the day hoeing the land.
    
    Summer Twentieth:
    -----------------
    
    More usual crap. I'd leave this space blank as i've said this
    all before but someone might get lost so here's what to do:
    Harvest your crops, using your horse and saddlebag of course!
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed
    the chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the
    eggs, till the same place you have been for about a week now.
    At least your getting somewhere...
    
    Summer Twenty-First:
    --------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the eggs,
    and head to the tilling area. By the time you are done today
    you SHOULD have the WHOLE land tilled, AND find another power
    berry! Unless you've found it allready! No more tilling all year
    long baby! Head back to your house to celebrate...not to mention
    sleep!
    
    Summer Twenty-Second:
    ---------------------
    
    Water the crops, feed both sprites, harvest some grass, feed the
    chickens, feed the cow(s), brush your cow(s), deposit the eggs,
    oh yeah harvest your truckload of tomatoes too. Tommorow we go
    shopping again!
    
    Summer Twenty-Third:
    --------------------
    
    Do the usual crap, then head to the carpenter and buy wood until
    you have 300 pieces. Then do the home expansion thingy, and head
    back to the ranch and do stuff.
    
    Summer Twenty-Fourth:
    ---------------------
    
    Talk to the carpenter, etc, etc. Harvest crop,s water crops,
    the usual. I don't really have to keep saying it.
    
    Summer Twenty-Fifth:
    --------------------
    
    You either know what to do during this time period or you are a
    total idiot. Either way there isn't much i can do to help you.
    
    Summer Twenty-Sixth:
    --------------------
    
    More usual stuff, wait for fall for a new and exciting strategy!
    
    Summer Twenty-Seventh:
    ----------------------
    
    I'd call this filler but it really isn't. It's just that all you
    need to do is harvest your crops and take care of the animals. If
    only something eventful were to happen!
    
    Summer Twenty-Eighth:
    ---------------------
    
    Just make sure not to shoot your chickens. That coop can get a
    bit frustrating at times. Make sure to feed the animals and buy
    a cow if you don't want to raise one, like me.
    
    Summer Twenty-Ninth:
    --------------------
    
    Keep harvesting -- grass mainly. Fall is almost here - you can
    smell it in the air. Ok not really, but hey we could use a
    change now and then.
    
    Summer Thirtieth:
    -----------------
    
    Allright, harvest EVERYTHING you can. Feed the animals, sprites,
    and get the goodies as usual. Buy the neccesary items you need
    if you don't have them allready. Here is what you should have
    by now: (In addition to what you should of had in spring).
    
    4 Cows
    4 Chickens
    All the land tilled and cleared.
    Ultra Deluxe House
    Golden Axe
    5-6 Power Berries
    175+ Fodder
    
    Now, onto the money-making days of fall. Don't worry, there is
    no raking involved!
    
    Fall First:
    -----------
    
    It's fall, and the only thing that has changed is the grass.
    Hmm, a bit odd. Anyway, the grass is brown now, but not dead.
    Harvest it when it's DARK brown. Anyway feed the sprites, cows,
    chickens, and then go to the store and buy some eggplant seeds.
    ALOT of eggplant seeds! Plant them anywhere, as your horse is
    now your shipping box. Be sure to water them, then go take your
    cow(s) for a walk or two to increase both of your happyness. Go
    to bed...whenever. Not much to do when there is no hoeing is
    there? I sure hope you like crops...
    
    Fall Second:
    ------------
    
    ~Follow Fall First Strategy - Completely~
    
    Fall Third:
    -----------
    
    ~Follow Fall First Strategy - Completely~
    
    Fall Fourth:
    ------------
    
    ~Follow Fall First Strategy - Completely~
    
    Fall Fifth:
    -----------
    
    ~Follow Fall First Strategy - Completely~
    
    Fall Sixth:
    -----------
    
    Same as the last few days, only your eggplant is ready to
    be harvested. Take the horse wherever you planted your
    crops and have fun. Then go buy more crops, water them,
    and wait another 5 days, basically...

    VI. Secrets
    =======================================================================
    
    Secrets:
    --------
    
    $200 Every Day:
    ---------------
    
    For an extra 200 dollars per day go into your tool shed and go out the back 
    door.  You will be in a cave.  On 2 of the rocks in front of you there will 
    be mushrooms.  Pick them up and put them in the shipping box in the cave. Do 
    this everyday.
    
    Become Harvest Master:
    ----------------------
    
    To win the title of "Harvest Master", there are strict requirements, and it 
    won't be easy. You must have 4 cows, 4 chickens, hoed over 1600 squares, 
    shipped 4500 pieces of produce, an Ultra Deluxe House, over six power 
    berries, over 65536 GP, and a happines over 250. With all this you'll get 
    the best ending.
    
    Free Seeds:
    -----------
    
    When you start a new game, choose a girl and name her something starting 
    with a heart. Pick a cat as a pet and start it's name with a heart. You will 
    start with one bag of grass, one bag of turnups, and the watering can.
    
    Get the Super Hammer, Axe, Hoe, and Sickle:
    --------------------------------------------
    
    To get the Super Hammer, upgrade your house once and you will get it from 
    the carpanter as a gift. For the axe, wait until the earthquake comes and 
    use the axe in the dwarve's cave, second screen up, on the now-open pond 
    slot.(The one that was blocked by the rock) For the hoe and sickle, from the 
    start of the game, give a mushroom a day to the first dwarf you see until 
    the earthquake. Free the crushed dwarf, go up one screen in the cave (Where 
    you get the axe) and talk to the dwarf in there. when he asks if the hoe and 
    sickle are working alright, say yes. he will upgrade them.
    
    Golden Axe:
    -----------
    
    To get the golden axe you have to go to the back of the mushroom cave and 
    throw your axe in the water all the way at the opposite side where you came 
    in. The Harvest fairy will ask you if you dropped a golden axe say "NO" she 
    will then give it to you. If you say yes she'll call you a liar.
    
    Grandfather's Secret Stash:
    ---------------------------
    
    Go into your home on the ranch, and check out the night stand on the right 
    of the bed (by using the A button, with no tools selected.) You will find 
    1000G of "Grandfather's rainy day money."
    
    Growing the Cabin Plant:
    ------------------------
    
    To grow the plant in the left of the cabin, by the bed, you must eat the 
    power berries. To get them give the elf in the first room of the caves one 
    mushroom a day for about 10 - 30 days.
    
    NOTE: If you talk to the elf this will not work so just give the elf a
    mushroom, cycle through his speech, and the don't talk to him until about 15 
    consecutive days of this have passed and then talk to him. Every time you 
    eat one berry the plant will grow more.
    
    How to Get the Horse:
    ---------------------
    
    When you look at the schedule on your clock, you will see that it has the 
    time the season and the day/date.  On the tenth day of spring you will wake 
    up and automatically go outside and somebody will ask you to take care of 
    their horse because the can't keep it anymore.  Say yes and it's yours!
    
    Name Game:
    ----------
    
    How you enter your name determines which crops youll be able to buy and
    grow. Capitalize the first letter in your name to grow eggplant and
    carrots. Leave the first letter in you name in lowere case to grow
    peanuts and broccoli. If you want to grow all four crops, replace the
    first letter in your name with a symbol, such as a heart.
    
    Nice Cows:
    ----------
    
    When you name your cows begin it with a heart and they will grow up
    faster and give good milk. Note that this only works if it is your
    first cow ever.
    
    Power Berries:
    --------------
    
    An alternative way to finding Power Berries (see Growing the Cabin
    Plant) is to simply use a hoe and dig for them.  It helps greatly
    to have the super hoe.  They will be evaluated into your score at
    the end of the year.
    
    Taking a stroll with your cow:
    ------------------------------
    
    Walk with your cow outside the barn by pushing your cow to the
    door. Then go around its feeding stable to get to the other side.
    Once you push it out the door, a little clip will be shown of you
    and your cow walking. It makes your cow very happy, especially if
    it's sick or unhappy. WARNING: Walking with your cow loses 1hr.
    So make sure you have extra time.
    
    Unlimited eggs:
    ---------------
    
    For unlimited eggs, while you still have the watering can, water
    the egg closest to the shipping box. There are a number of things
    you must do to make this work, they are:
    
    1. Have four farm raised chickens
    2. Still have the watering can
    3. 200 pieces of feed
    4. 2 cows
    5. $10,000

    VII. Getting Started
    ======================================================================
    
    This game is hard enough as it is, and how you set up the game can be one of 
    the hardest parts, oddly enough. This will be just a simple, quick guide to 
    setting up the perfect game! Note that if you are looking for help on the 
    first few days, weeks, seasons, etc of the year that you should refer to 
    section V.
    
    Name:
    -----
    
    Well, you get 4 characters. Put a Heart first, then any 3 letters you want.
    
    Gender:
    -------
    
    I'm a guy, but if you pick a girl, you'll start out with free seeds, and the 
    watering can! Why not?
    
    Pet:
    ----
    
    Pick a dog. Name it: (Heart)(three letters of your choice)
    
    That's all there is to it! You will now be able to grow the BEST crops, 
    start out with the most tools, start out with free grass, and 2 bags of food 
    seeds. You are well on your way to becoming a harvest master!
    
    =======================================================================
    VIII. Story
    =======================================================================
    
    You are Jack, the grandson of a famous harvester. Your dead grandfather 
    tells you to become the harvest master by raising crops, and taking care of 
    your inherited farm for one year. If you suceed, you will be rewarded with 
    wealth, and happiness. If you slack off and don't work you'll lose the farm 
    and your dead grandfather goes back to heaven. It's you and your farm-tools, 
    and that's it, your grandfather cannot help you now. It's up to you to 
    decide the fate of your farm.

    X. Shops Guide
    =======================================================================
    
    There are 6 shops in the game - each offering it's own special services. 
    This will cover what you can generally get there, and a few specific items 
    they sell which are of use. If you are looking for all the items in the 
    game, scroll down to the section below -- "Items Guide". Here is a sad 
    looking map of the shops screen.

      Tool Shop|               |Animal Shop
          |____|_______________|____|
    
    Now that you know where they are located, maybe, here is a brief description 
    of the shops and what they have to offer:
    
    Carpenter:
    ----------
    
    You'll visit his shop 4 times tops during the game. He offers two things: 
    Home Expansions and Wood that you need to give him to build your house. You 
    can only get 2 upgrades from him so once you have them, there is no need to 
    visit this strange-looking dude.
    
    Juice Bar:
    ----------
    
    Only open at night, this offers beverages ovbviously. I do believe you can 
    beat the game without buying his items however, and he's a bit too perky for 
    his own good.
    
    Restaurant:
    -----------
    
    Open in the day, this place offers food. I also do belive you can become a 
    harvest master without buying stuff here. I think all it does is improve 
    your happyness to have alot of food.
    
    Tool Shop:
    ----------
    
    This place holds key items such as the sprinkler, brush, milker, and a 
    variety of other items. Most are for your cow, and are very expensive. You 
    will need a few items from here but some you can save to buy until the 2nd 
    year.
    
    Animal Shop:
    ------------
    
    You actually will not need to come here often. This place offers chickens, 
    cows, animal food, and a few other things. You'll spend a few bucks on cows, 
    but you'll only need to grab a chicken and a couple other things before you 
    can stop visiting the old dude.
    
    Flower Shop:
    ------------
    
    By far the most visited shop in the game. This place only offers one thing - 
    seeds. The items change in the 4 seasons however. You can always buy grass 
    whenever you like here, but some things, such as tomatoes, potatoes, and 
    corn can only be bought in certain seasons. A harvest master will need to 
    come here about twice a week in some seasons, while only twice or so in 
    summer.

    few notes about the e-mail i recieve:
    
    `.;'",~Questions`.;'",~
    
    I cannot stress enough how important it is that you include the NAME
    OF THE GAME with the e-mail. 15 e-mails a day get ignored simply
    because i cannot tell which game they are for. Also any e-mail that
    looks a bit like this will be disregarded:
    
    "Hay Dude Wuz uhp? Lik Huw Du Yu Gat Dat Kee Mn?!"
    
    It will be DELETED, get it?
    
    `.;'",~Praise`.;'",~
    
    Sure, send it in. It might even get a reply, as it's usally 1/2 the
    mail i get worth responding to. Just don't suck up and as for a
    favor in return - i hate that.
    
    `.;'",~Hate Mail\Flames\Unreadable Crap`.;'",~
    
    Sure, send it in. I LOVE to paste your shi! on the gamefaqs.com
    message board and laugh with the other author's at you. Even us
    author's need to be entertained every once in a while.
    
    `.;'",~Website Related Junk`.;'",~
    
    I will not work for your website, make your website, be affiliated
    with your website, etc, etc. Most importantly, you MAY NOT put this
    on your site or even ASK me if you can. In other words, webmasters
    MAY NOT E-MAIL ME. GET IT?
    
    `.;'",~Advertisements`.;'",~
    
    Do NOT send me anything that is unrealated to video games, i get
    enough of that from the perverts, fat people, skinny people, and
    people with way too much crap to sell.
