-----------------------------A. Using this Guide-------------------------- 
-----------------------------A1. Introduction-----------------------------
Hi! My name is Chris Stewart. I'm an avid fan of Harvest Moon. I never really 
got around to making any guides. But, a new game comes out, And I've got it, 
as usual, so, to fill up the page, I thought I'd clear a few things up. 
Searching in some of the other guides, I found some stuff was missing, or 
incorrect. So, I got the real answers and decided I'd right a few wrongs by 
writing this guide! Anyway, all this one is is basically growing, selling, and 
making hybrids of trees and crops. I got all this information myself (So far) 
and I hope you enjoy it!

-----------------------------A2. Navigation-----------------------------
Navingating my guide is fairly simple. Here are the basics to jumping 
categories. See the table of contents up there? Well, you can hopefully see 
the different Number-Letter combinations too. TO find a section, Basically 
Highlight (Click your left mouse button, the drag it over to the end of the 
letter/number combo) , right click, select copy, press CTRL and F at the same 
time (THis opens up the find menu), and left click in the text box, and press 
CTRL and V. Now hit enter. You'll be jumped over to it, hopefully. If not, 
click enter again! THere you have it!

-----------------------------A3. Version Info-----------------------------
Current Version: v1.02: Made the Animals section completed, with fish and 
chickens, cattle, sheep.. you name it. Anyway, next version shall bring
into being a new layout.

List:

V0.1 (April 4 2004) First version, the A Section complete, Table of contents, 
basic crops list without pricing, info about generation 1 hybrid crops, and a 
load of other information.

v0.2: (April 5, 2004) Added a load to trees; Types, Level 1 Hybrids, 
most of the list, Seasons, and most seed prices. Some Fruit Prices, Info on 
trees. 1 Second generation Hybrid.
Some crop prices. 

v0.3: (April 6, 2004) Minor update, added the crop and tree seasonal lists.

v0.4: (April 12, 2004) Unexpected Update, but gotta keep things coming. 
Basically finished Hybrid Gen 1 Crop pricing, added some Gen 2 recipies, 
added
some fruit prices, and generally a fairly large update. Fixed some problems
with margins.

v1.00: (April 13, 2004) Updated to next level... by finishing my goals 
in the crops and trees section.

v1.01: (April 14, 2004) Added a blank animals section, as well as the
"Your Farm" section (Complete). updated the stats in the bottom.

v1.02: (April 16, 2004)Made the Animals section completed, with fish and 
chickens, cattle, sheep.. you name it. Anyway, next version shall bring
into being a new layout.

||+--------------------------B. Your Farm-------------------+||
--------------B1: The Buildings around your farm-------------
There are a couple places around your farm. For this, refer to your instruction
booklet for identification of places.
-A: Your Barn: This is where you keep your horses, cows, sheep, and goats. Also,
this connects to your tool shed and later your milking room. There is a bell 
inside that calls all animals into your barn. There is another bell outside
towards the field that you can use to call your animals into the field.
On the opposite side, accross from the entrance to the barn, is the shipping
room.

-B: Tool Shed: This holds your tool shelf, where you put all your tools.. 
and there is also a shelf where you can store all your miscellaneous items.
It connects to the barn.

-C: Food Storage: This is the shipping room. In the beginning of the game you
can only ship eggs and milk, but later in the game you can ship 2nd Hybrid
Level crops.

-D: Takakura's house: Technically this isn't your building, but this is Taka's
house. Tartan lives here in chapter 2.

-E: Chicken Coop: This is where your chickens go. You need a male and a
female to get a fertilized egg. You put a F. egg into the incubator to make
more chickens.

-F: Your house: You live here. I'll outline this later.

Fields: There are three fields; 1 beside your house (Not Fertile), 1 beside the
chicken coop (Fertile) and one at the corner of your farm (Very fertile), 
you'll notice it's gigantic area for crops. You plant trees and crops in 
these areas.

Pasture: This is just the area your animals go to graze.

Upgrades: There are 3 things you can make. 
1: Pond (2500G) This is just a pond that goes in the middle of your pasture. 
Ducks will come to live in it.

2: Processing Room (30000G) This is a place to turn your milk into cheese and
butter. It attaches to the food storage room (Shipping room)

3: Milking room (60000G) This room is helpful if you have multiple cows to
milk and very little time. It attaches to the barn and has a door into 
the pasture. If your cows are outside, they will automatically go inside 
to get milked.

-------------------------B2. Your house-------------------------
-Chapter One
In chapter one, your house is just large enough for you. You have a bed,
Your bedside table to save your game on, a calendar, an oven to cook food,
and a television. There is also a bookshelf that you can change options and
read Taka's notes.

-Chapter Two
Your house is larger. Now there are two beds; Your old bed (For your son) 
and your new bed (For you and your wife) The oven is now gone, but
everything else is still there. Instead of the oven, there's a door!
Enter this door, and you will find your new kitchen! In here is a large kitchen,
A table, and a usable refrigerator! You can store 330 different objects in it!
Also, there are two doors in this kitchen area; One that leads to a bathroom,
and one to a tub.

-Chapter Three
Your house is even larger. 3 rooms; your two previous ones (Your old bed is
missign though!) and a new one, your son's room. Your old bed is located here. 
There is also a stick, a table, and a bookshelf where you can find out his
interests.

-----------------------------C2. Making Hybrids----------------------------- 

-----------------------------C2a. Getting Tartan-----------------------------
Tartan is a green two headed plant that shows up in chapter two and lives in 
Takakura's house. To get him, watch Taka go into his house, and follow him. 
You might get a cutscene about Tartan. If not, give him stuff you cook, and 
try at different times. Eventually, he'll show up in a cutscene. Now, to get 
Tartan to make you hybrids, talk to him CONSTANTLY. Soon enough, he'll ask if 
you nee anything and HYBRID will be at the top of the menu. 
Now, in Hybridizing, you mix 2 things to get one thing. It doesn't always 
work, though. And there are a few rules. You can't mix flowers with trees, 
Mixing crops with trees result in the same tree seed and the highest level 
(CBAS) and nothing more. Now, there are a few tricks, but those will be 
outlined later. Tartan is a nasty trickster; after every seed you make, 
he'll ask "Quit Hybridizing?" and give you yes or no. If you pick YES 
you'll go back into the Hybridizing menu. If you click NO you'll exit. 
Now, when mizing two plants you haven't ever before, if successful you'll 
get this sort of Horn/Egyption sort of music, and a new crop will pop out. 
If it's unsuccessful, a sort of energetic drum sound comes out. If you've 
made the crop before, you'll always get the drum sound, and sometimes you'll 
get a new crop. If you fail, you recieve one seed bag back.

--------------------------C2c. About Gen 2 Hybrids--------------------------
Generation two hybrids are very confusing. There are a few things that are 
odd about them.
1: They are unnamed. You have 4 spaces to name them.
2: Most of them look like musical instruments, Lightbulbs, and old crops.
3: They are hard to figure out.
Not all hybrids make Gen 2 Hybrids. Some just end up as normal crops. 
So, you just have to keep trying at them to win.

So.. pick your name. In here, they are just numbers, in no particular order.

-----------------C2d. Hybrid Gen 2 List (Incomplete)----------------------
 Now.. these are just things Vesta and Tartan tell me. If Vesta told me it, 
it'll have a (V) in front of it, and if Tartan, than (T). If It worked, 
I'll just write what it makes. If it doesn't work, I'll write "False". 
Okay... now to the recipies! Oh, and beside it's number, I'll have the name 
I put for it.

(V) Dhilon + Caberry= #1 (Diry) (Fall)
(T) Trady + Berryto (Don't know which one)=  
(T) Kanro + Radita=
(T) Tataro + Cady=
(T) Tobatama + Bashber=


-----------------------------C2e. Floral Hybrids-----------------------------
Floral hybrids is another name for a CROP (Not trees) hybridized with a 
type of flower. Now, only three flowers work; The Happy Lamp (Summer) The 
Gemsoil (Fall) and the Upseed (Winter)
Now, mixing with any crop has the same effect. Here are the effects:

Happy Lamp: Can grow in any season (Hasn't worked for me though, might 
just me a glitch in my disc)

Gemsoil: Can grow in any soil

Upseed: Upgrades the SeeD to S quality



-----------------------------C3. Growing Crops-----------------------------
-----------------------------C3a. How to plant-----------------------------
Planting is as easy as in every other game. You have your three fields. 
Take a hoe (you start with the heavy one, check your toolshed) and till a 
square of soil. Now, seeds are another thing in this game. Instead of 
1 bag= 9 squares, 1 bag= 1 square. But, don't complain! Seeds are cheaper, 
and it just fits. Plus, it won't matter when you have a seed machine. 
Anyway, so you place a seed in a tilled square. Tada! Planting is over.



-----------------------------C3b. How to grow-----------------------------
Growing is simplistic as well. As with every other Harvest Moon game, you 
simply water your crops. You start with a watering can S(Small) and you can 
fill it up at the fountain beside the chicken coop. You simply water the 
square with a seed in it. Eventually, your crops flower. Afte rthe flower is 
gone, you'll either get to harvest, or else the crop will appear on the vine 
for you to *sigh* keep watering. 



--------------------C3c. How to Increase Quality-----------------------------
There are four grades of crop in this game; C, B, A and S. I've personally 
never seen a C grade crop, so I rarely mention them in this guide. Now, all 
the seeds you buy from Vesta and her farm mates are grade B. B is an average 
crop. Now, you can increase the grade by giving the plant fertilizer. You by 
this at Vesta's farm for 120G/box. Different plants need different ammounts of 
fertilizer, but I'm sure it's safe to say each plant needs about 3-6 
Applications of Fertilizer to go up a level. My Tomacas took 6, but my Turnips 
only needed 4, so there is a difference. Anyway, to apply fertilizer, select 
it, use it on the crop, and three black triangular figures appear. Re-apply 
when these figures are tiny dots, or are gone. 


 
-----------------------------C3d. The Seed Maker-----------------------------
There are two ways to aquire this amazing invention. The first, 
more expensive, but easier way is to purchase it. It should be available by 
Fall of year one for 6000G. The other way is to befriend Daryl. Then, enter 
his house at about 9am, and he'll complain about them stealing his invention, 
and he'll give you the seed maker. 

Working the Seed Maker is simple. There are twelve slots. You put crops or 
fruit in each slot and it will slowly (around 1 and 1/2 days to 5) decompose 
and form 2 bags of seeds. You can sell these to Van, and make a little more 
profit (Sometimes) or plant them. This is a good way of getting a load of S 
crops.

-------------------------D2b. About Gen 2 Hybrids-----------------------------
Generation two hybrids are very confusing. There are a few things that 
are odd about them.
1: They are unnamed. You have 4 spaces to name them.
2: Most of them look like musical instruments.
3: They are hard to figure out.
Not all hybrids make Gen 2 Hybrids. Some just end up as normal crops. 
So, you just have to keep trying at them to win.

Because you have to name them, I've developed a naming scheme. Simply...

----------------------D2c. Hybrid Gen 2 List (*)-----------------------------
|Hybrid      |    Crop 1   |    Crop 2  |
|------------|-------------|------------|
|Beag        |Magerum      |Phuju       |
|------------|-------------|------------|

--------------------D2d. Making better trees-----------------------------
TO get better trees, there is a quick and easy approach, or a long, 
boring, and expensive approach. The long, boring, expensive one is using 
around 60 fertilizers on the tree while it's still growing. THis will get 
you to S grade, but it will cost 7200G...
The easier way is to hybridize an S grade crop Seed with any grade of tree 
seed. The result is an S-grade Tree seed. 


---------------------------D3. Making mega-money-----------------------------
All you need is the Seed maker. Simply collect the fruit, and put it in the 
seed maker. The fruit goes for a cheap price, but the seeds go for anywhere 
from 400G-1500G. And putting them in the Seed maker... you get 2 bags for each 
fruit! It'll last you for seasons to come, trust me! Another method, though 
very luvk oriented, is to make a beag (Hybrid level 2) These are made from 
Magerums and Phujus, and their seeds sell for 1250G! They take quite awhile to 
grow, though.


-----------------------------D3a. The Seed Maker-----------------------------
See Section B3d.
           

-----------------------------D3b. Fruit Vs. Seeds-----------------------------
As seen in making mega-money, it's obvious that making tree seeds is the 
way to go. You make tons more money, and if you have a level 2 hybrid, you 
can just keep planting them for even more trees and more money!


||+--------------------------E. Animals---------------------------+||
This whole section outlines Animals and their effects within the game.
You'll find cattle, sheep, the horse, chicken, duck, and such info on here.
If I really feel like it, you'll even find prices.

---------------E1. Cattle (And the stupid goat)--------------------------
Cattle play a major part in this game. Right from the beginning you start
with a cow. It gives around 4 Normal A Milk right from the start. After that,
it slowly dwindles down. There are four types of cattle; Normal, Brown, Marble,
And Star. Star cows are the most expensive. Cows are in genders. There are male
and female cattle, bulls and cows. Cows give milk, bulls get cows pregnant.
Bulls for that sole purpose does sound stupid, but it's crucial to the game!
You see, cows stop giving milk if they don't need it. They only need it after
giving birth. They'll give milk for 40 days (1 year) after birth. It takes 
aroudn 20 days from pregnancy to having the calf. 10 Days your dow is pregnant, 
ten days your cow is isolated. After that, for 10 days the calf is isolated
in a calf hatch, whereas the mother cow gives Mother's Milk. Personally,
I give this to the calf (Show it to the calf) but it doesn't do much else.
You can sell it, but it's cheap. Anyway, I find this tedious, having to make
cows pregnant every year. But here are some prices and costs.

Costs: Normal Bull: 3000G
       Normal Cow : 4000G
       Brown Bull : 4000G
       Brown Cow  : 5000G
       Marble Bull: 4000G
       Marble Cow : 5000G
       Star Bull  : 6000G
       Star Cow   : 7000G

Milk (B): Normal: 75G
          Brown : 115G
          Marble: 115G
          Star  : 270G
         Mothers: 75G
Milk (A): Normal: 115G
          Brown : 175G
          Marble: 175G
          Star  : 405G
Milk (S): Normal: 150G
          Brown : 225G
          Marble: 225G
          Star  : 540G

Notes about cheese and butter: I think that Natsume skimped out on this
butter and cheese work. I think they should have made it according to rank more.
Like, Star CheeseB, Brown CheeseA, Normal ButterS... that stuff. Because when
Star cows give A-S Milk, there is not much point in making cheese other than 
for cooking... 

Good and Normal?
Good Butter/Cheese can be made from:
Star Milk  : BAS
Marble Milk: S 
Brown Milk : AS
Normal Milk: S

All the others are regular Cheese/Butter.

Cheese:   Normal: 300G
          Good  : 225G
          Moms  : 115G
Butter:   Normal: 300G
          Good  : 225G
          Moms  : 115G
And then there was... a goat. The goat is the stupidest creature in Harvest
Moon. I swear it. You get it, for 40 days, it gives you crappy milk. Then it
stops. You cannot breed it to get more milk. You can't even sell it. It just
takes up space. So.. most people end up killing it. And although it is a 
horrible and sad thing to do.. it just has to be done. Useless animals.

Prices: Butter: 150G
        Cheese: 155G
        Milk  : 115G
Good:   Butter: 350G
        Cheese: 355G
        Milk  : 300G

-----------------------------E2. The Horse-------------------------------
There is not much to be said about your horse. It shows up early Summer,
during Year one of Chapter One. Taka orders it for you. You can ride 
it and it generally cuts down energy use and travelling time.

-----------------------------E3. Sheep-----------------------------------
Gah.. I've never liked sheep. They take too long to produce wool and are
just generally anoying. But that's my opinion. Sheep come in males only, 
and produce wool once a season. They cost 1500G each. They can produce
3 wools: Wool, Good Wool (FOrgot the name) and Golden wool. In that same
order, you can sell them for 75G, 115G, and 600G. So pah. Stupid sheep.

-----------------------------E4. Chickens/Ducks--------------------------
Chickens are a great thing that have been around for a long time.
Ducks are fairly new, however. Chickens come in males and females.
You can order them for 900G each. Females produce the eggs, and the roosters
can fertilize them. Fertilized eggs can be put inot the incubator to hatch
new chickens. I don't know too much about ducks, but I think their eggs sell
for the same price. If you treat your chickens real good, they eventually 
give Golden Eggs. 

Prices:    Egg: 40G
    Golden Egg: 50G
Fertilized Egg: 300G


-----------------------------E5. Fish------------------------------------
Fish are great in this game. I spend a lot of time fishing even though
I'm rich, because I have this schedule. I sell off my fish and if any are left,
I make Meuniere Sets and then sell them for some good money. So.. Here is a
list.
          |       Prices     |
|  Fish   | Regular |  Big   |
|---------|---------|--------|
|SharShark|600G     |1200G   |
|Snelt    |30G      |60G     |
|Colombo  |20G      |40G     |
|Yamame   |500G     |1000G   |
|Huchep   |90G      |170G    |
|Nyamame  |60G      |130G    |
|Arna     |400G     |800G    |
|Rainbob  |80G      |150G    |
|---------|---------|--------|

Tips: In Chapter One, fish in the upper river/Waterfall. I made a lot of money
that way. Occasionally you get a yamame which sell for 500G. Otherwise the
other fish, Hucheps and Nyamames, sell for a good begginner ammount.
