Mixed Seeds

First, let’s talk about mixed seeds. They can produce random crops and can be planted in different seasons for specific crops. There are several ways to obtain mixed seeds, such as harvesting weeds, hoeing dirt or sand, or finding them in fishing treasure chests.

On Thursdays, you can also buy them for 30 gold at Krobus’ shop in the sewers. Generally, players don’t farm mixed seeds intentionally but rather accumulate them through regular gameplay. Note that mixed seeds can’t be planted in winter unless they’re in a greenhouse or on Ginger Island.

In spring, they can yield cauliflower, daffodil, and potatoes; in summer, corn, hot peppers, radishes, and wheat; in fall, artichokes, corn, eggplants, and pumpkins.

Greenhouses can produce random crops from spring, summer, and fall, while Ginger Island can yield blueberries, melons, pineapples, and rhubarb.

Mixed seeds are useful in the early game when money is tight, and they might bring unexpected harvests. Moreover, mixed seeds can later be used to craft fiber seeds.

Fiber Seeds

Now let’s discuss fiber seeds. On the second day of the first fall, if you visit the town, you’ll trigger a cutscene where a special request board is installed in front of Mayor Lewis’ house.

After completing Linus’ community cleanup special request, you’ll receive a letter from him unlocking the fiber seed recipe. Fiber seeds are primarily harvested for fiber, but they have an additional feature: they can persist across seasons. When harvested, the tilled soil remains tilled.

You can take advantage of this by planting fiber seeds on the last day of fall or any other last harvest day in autumn. Doing this, you won’t need to fertilize the soil on the first day of spring in the second year, and you can plant seeds directly after harvesting the fiber with a scythe. This method also applies to winter seeds.

Since winter seeds become out of season in spring, their soil will revert to an untilled state. However, when fiber seeds are fully grown, they can drop around four fibers each. Fiber is a primary ingredient in crafting tea saplings. This method saves time and accumulates materials, making it highly recommended for players to try. That’s all for this tutorial!
