Love Story Quest and Heart Envelopes Collections Mission

The current time-restricted Quest has as its subject the romance between Grandma Blair and Grandpa.  It is rather endearing.

It has come to my attention that there are people who are copying and pasting the work I do without giving any credit to the writer.  It takes quite a long time to write these posts.  I am happy to be of help to any one who plays the game, but please do give credit to Freyashawk if you are using the entire text in your Family Farm Group.  Thank you.




The Easter Egg Factory activity is tied to the first 8 Parts of the traditional 'Love Story' Quest sequence.  You will receive a pattern as a reward when you complete each part.  I have noted the patterns I received on Harvest Moon FDC but it is possible that the actual pattern you receive in each case is random.  After you complete the first eight parts of the traditional Quest sequence, you will receive a special Reward in the form of the Bee Wings Pet House Ears.  'They make a set with the little bee antennae we received previously.  No matching Base yet.

Please note that there are no item requests from Neighbours and there are only a few Island Tasks, one of which requires the Yogurt Machine.   The Yogurt Machine is a three-ingredient Machine on the Island and the two ingredients that never change are Honey and Goat Milk, both of which must be transported from your Seaside Farm.  Make certain that you have at least 20 Honey and 20 Goat Milk if you wish to make 20 Cranberry Yogurt for one of the last tasks in the traditional quest sequence. The final Reward is a Heart-Shaped Tree Decoration.

The Reward for the Collections Mission is a Parsley Pot, a Collectable.

You collect the following:

70 Pink Hearts from Pink Roses
50 Red Hearts from Wine
30 Orange Hearts from Mayonnaise
10 Blue Hearts from Gooseberry Bush

Premium Items Needed
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You will need a Gooseberry Bush for the Collections Mission, a Sakura Tree, a White Chocolate Tree.  As far as Fish are concerned, you will need 6 Butterfish for the Lemon Fish task.  Thanks to the new option to trade fish at the pier, you will be able to trade for these if you do not have them or catch them immediately.

You will need a Goat to produce Goat Milk.  This is the second timed Quest recently that has required a Goat, so it may be a good idea to buy one if you do not have one.  You can find them for sale randomly in the Green Mystrons shop but otherwise the price for a White Goat is 15 RC.  Note as well that the White Goat is included as one of the items in the Collection Set.  If you want to receive a Clam Friendship Flower, you need a White Goat as well as the Parsley Pot and Heart Shaped Tree Decoration.


Easter Egg Factory Activity
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You should have been given 3 Plain Eggs by Felicia last week.  You then should have been able to obtain random Paint to colour these Eggs.  The colours you could make were Purple, Green and Orange.  I made one of each.  Now, in the first half of the traditional Quest, you should receive Wave Patterns and Dot Patterns.  I received a total of 4 of each of these.  Usually, in Factory Merge activities, you cannot do anything until you have all the Materials.  The Eggs are different.  Once you have the Patterns, you can go to the Factory to merge the coloured Eggs with the Patterns.  I chose to make two Wave Patterned Eggs and 1 Dot Patterned Egg.  Just my personal preference.  At this point, the Eggs you make cannot be placed.  They remain Materials for a future Decoration and are not themselves completed Decorations.

A Day with Granny Quest, Stars Collections and Easter Farm Beauty Contest

There is a new time-limited traditonal Quest sequence in tandem with a Stars Collection Mission. Tips for the new Easter Greeting Farm Beauty Contest will be added in a section at the end of the post.  There is a little Q and A section at the end to direct players who are not familiar with the rules of the Farm Beauty Contest.

Note that because of some problems with updates, changes may have occurred with respect to tasks... will update as often as possible to reflect current tasks.  The two tasks that required items requested from Neighbours originally have changed.

The reward for the Collections Mission is a Stove House Recipe used in one of the tasks for Part 8 of the Quest Sequence.

Prepare the dish as follows:

Stove House - Aubergine Kebab Recipe (Need 30 seconds to cook this recipe)
This recipe is given as the reward for completing the Stars Collections Mission.
3 Beef (1 hour)
1 Eggplant (1 hour)
3 Tomato (5 minutes)
3 Onion (50 seconds)
6 Power
This recipe is simple: Place all ingredients in pan; tap cook and watch until bronze star (10 seconds remaining) or continue until all flavor points are gained, stopping just as time reaches zero seconds.
(Thanks to Kaye Webb, an administrator of our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group)

Here is the quest but here I wish to thank all of my wonderful Neighbours... I have been playing this game for four years and I have made some fabulous friends and neighbours.  Thanks to all in our group who have given their support as well!

To use this option, tap on the icon of the fish on a scale to the right of the actual pier.  You will see one tab for selling and one for buying.

If you have a fully upgraded Goldfinger tech, you can make Smoked Mackerel in your Smokehouse using the Tech even if you do not have any actual Mackerel in stock.  It should count for this task.

Finally, for the purposes of a task like this, you can 'Miss' a catch to bring the total to 8 if you are impatient to complete the task using your default of 7 attempts.

Easter Greeting Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

A new Farm Beauty contest has begun.  My first suggestion is not to let the game persuade you to make your application until you have organised your farm a little to maximise your Votes form the four Characters.  If you are a fairly low level or new player who has few Decorations, you may wish to consider buying the new special Decoration offered in the sales in the top right of your screen.  It is the Chicken Bunny and it is worth 3 Votes instead of the usual 1 from three of the four Characters.  Once you have registered it, it should give you 9 votes per day for Theme... there are other decorations worth more than 1 Vote but at the moment, this is the only one worth 3 Votes from 3 Characters.

The rules of the Contest appear to be the same as before. I will post more details as to how to get maximum Votes from all the four characters every day.  If you want the Reward Decoration from the Beauty Contest that requires a total of 4000 Votes, you can do it fairly easily by obtaining a total of 200 Votes from the Characters alone each day.  The Avatar at 6000 Points is more difficult.

Theme Item List
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This is a work in progress.  I intend to add information about decorations in Lucky Wheel and more details about acquisition of each item.

To view all theme items, tap on the icon of the Red Book on the right top side of the Beauty Contest Menu.  Many thanks to members of Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group and especially Kaye Webb and Amanda Nelson for making prices of Lucky Box theme decorations available quickly.

This contest has the following theme items:

Beauty Contest Q & A or 'What am I doing wrong?'
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Question: Over half of my farm has crops growing on it.  Why am I not getting the maximum from Darryl for Crops?
Answer:  You have to have 16 DIFFERENT types of Crops on your Farm at the tine when you take the screenshot.  Remember always that the Votes are based on the current photo of your farm!

Question:  I have 20 machines on my farm.  Why am I not getting the maximum from Dad for machines?
Answer:  Duplicates do not count.  If you have 2 Wine Makers, for example, only one Vote will be given for that Machine.  You need 12 different machines in the current photo of your Farm.

Question:  I have 18 Animals on my farm, but Felicia is not giving me 16/16 for Animals!
Answer:  Like the Crops and Machines, duplicates do NOT count.  Make certain you have 12 different types of Animals on your Farm and then take a new photograph for the Contest!  Note that the different Beehives and different Butterfly Houses each count as a different type of Animal.

Question:  When I look at the red book in the Contest Menu at all of the Theme Decorations, I know that many of them are on my Farm but they are not given the green chequemark there and I do not think they are being counted by the three Characters for Theme. Why is that?

Answer:  First of all, you need to register any Decoration in the Gallery before it will be recognised usually for the Contest.  Second of all, you need to take a new Screenshot for the Contest after you place any new or additional Theme item on your Farm.

Question:  How many Votes do I need each day to get the Theme Decoration in the Farm Beauty Contest Rewards Menu?

Answer:  You need a total of 200 Votes each day to get the Reward Decoration.  It is far better to organise your own farm to get this total from the four Characters than to try to rely on the Votes of Neighbours.  It is not that difficult to get 200 Votes each day.  First of all, plant 16 different types of Crops, then make certain you have as many different Trees as possible on your Farm.  (You may only need 12 different trees this time.) . Place as many different Machines as possible on your Farm.   (Again, you may need only 12 different machines, no duplicates.)  Place at least 12 different Animals on the Farm... remember that each type of Beehive and Butterfly House is considered to be a different Animal in this context.  Now, finally, look at the Theme Book in the red top corner of the Farm Beauty Contest Menu and see how many of those Decorations you have on your farm.  THEME DECORATIONS MUST BE REGISTERED IN ORDER TO COUNT!  Is your Landscape Point total over 2200?  Not certain what is required for this contest, but if you have 2350 Landscape Points, you definitely will receive the maximum votes for Landscape.  Finally, only AFTER you organise your farm for maximum votes should you take a NEW PHOTOGRAPH.

Harvest Moon FDC
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Please do request to join our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group if you need neighbours or help with the game.  My farm is Harvest Moon FDC (Freyashawk de Conde), and if you use this site and wish to let me know you appreciate my work, I would be most grateful for your Votes in the Contest. This is a 'clean' site without advertising of any kind.  I don't get paid in any way to do the work. Apart from anything else, though, I feel that when Harvest Moon FDC ranks high in the Contest, it may direct more players to our groups and this site.  Thank you!

N.B.  A Stove House Recipe is required for one of the tasks in the form of the Dipping Noodles with Seafood Recipe.  It originally was given as a reward for a Collections Mission that was tied to a timed Mission but if you did not earn it then, you can purchase it in the Stove Recipe section of the Market now for 9 RC.

Spring Picnic Guests and Springtime Base

N.B.  The post for the current timed Quest and Collections Mission will be found below this post.

Introduction
xxxxxxxxxx

This post contains all information about the Springtime Base, both methods of obtaining it (with full Farm Fest Quest details), methods of obtaining the Materials for it, all information about the Spring Picnic Guests, with their actual orders and Lunch Boxes received as Rewards and at the end, some information about changes in the game with the new Update.

The Springtime Base
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You still can obtain 1 Springtime Base from the Lighthouse Mission if you did not complete the Mission previously.  (Still active, according to our group member, Melissa Elder.) You can obtain a SECOND Springtime Base by merging the materials in your Factory.  All tasks for the Farm Fest Quest that will give you a Springtime Base is given at the end of this post.

It looks as though only ONE Springtime Base can be made by any player in the Factory so if you want two, you need to have one from the Lighthouse Mission.

Note, as previously indicated, that you now can merge a Springtime Base in the Factory when you have collected sufficient materials. Materials for the Springtime Base will be given in a series of activities.  The first is the Cooking Bag Stand where you randomly can find a material in the March Cooking Bags.  To forge a Springtime Base you will need 12 Spring Wreath from the Cooking Stand bags, 6 Picnic Soda and 40 Lunch Box.    The 6 Picnic Sodas were obtained from the highlighted Order on the Daily Order Board through 30 March, now no longer an active option.

Note that you can purchase the Spring Wreath and the Picnic Soda now in the Daily Special section of the Market.  The Spring Wreath costs 70 TC and the Picnic Soda costs 70 TC as well.

The new game update and the changes in the game it brings are discussed at the very end of this post. One section deals with Batch Cleaning and Clean Tickets.

Spring Picnic Guests
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The new Spring Picnic Guest Groups found in the lower left corner of your Guest House Menu will give you the 3rd and final Material required to merge a Springtime Base in the Factory.

You should receive a total of 2 Lunch Boxes from the 1 Star Group consisting of only 2 Guests.  The 2 Star Group consists of 4 Guests but you may not receive a Lunch Box from each of them.  In two separate Visits, I received only a total of 2 Lunch Boxes from the entire Group.  In another visit, however, the 2 Star Group did give me 4 Lunch Boxes... it therefore is random to some extent for the 2 Star Group and the 3 Star Groups.  I posted actual order lists below but your results could be either better or worse.  With the 3 Star Guests, I found that the ratio of Lunch Box Rewards to Guest Orders was pitiful!  One Guest in the 3 Star Group requires 8 Orders and on two separate visits, I received NO Lunch Box from her!

Provided you have a total of 10 Paths on your Farm, you can use a Passport to invite the 1 Star Group of Guests immediately.  These consist of Huey and Antonio.  They each give four Orders and, provided you complete all of them, each should give you 1 Lunch Box Material for the Base.  I use the word 'should' as it may be random actually, but the probabilities are very high with the 1 Star Group, unlike the 2 and 3 Star Groups where probability of receiving a Lunch Box appears to be far lower.

As of Sunday, 2 April, the best value is the 1 Star Guest Group that never has failed to give 2 Lunch Boxes.  I have invited all of them repeatedly but many times, you fill more orders at the higher star levels but do not receive more Lunch Boxes.  It always IS RANDOM, but results should be better!  If Support changes the odds of receiving Lunch Boxes, I will update this.

Advantages of inviting 2 or 3 Star Guest Groups
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If you have not been playing the game long, I suggest you look at the actual Order Lists for the 2 Star and 3 Star Guest Groups before you use your Telescopes, in particular, to unlock 2 and 3 Star. Remember that the Spring Picnic Guests are a temporary addition to Mootopia.  There is no permanent advantage to unlocking the 2 or 3 Star Groups if you cannot fill the orders easily.

The number of Lunch Boxes you receive always is RANDOM and the odds are very much NOT in our favour for the 2 and 3 Star Guests.  What then are the advantages of using your Passport for the 2 Star or 3 Star Groups?

If you need to increase the Level of your Pets, obviously you will benefit in THAT respect from the 2 and 3 Star Groups, some members of which have higher stamina cost than others.  On the other hand, if you are in this position, you may benefit more from using your Pets to take Orders from the permanent Guest groups that give Pet Cards as their Rewards.

Ideally, the fact that the same Passport can be used for a 3 Star Group as a 1 Star Group should make it more profitable to use that passport for the higher Star Group.  In this case, however, the programming is faulty.  I seldom have received more than 3 Lunch Boxes from a 2 Star Group and often only 2, the same number I ordinarily receive from the 1 Star Group.  3 Star is worse... Jane has twice the number of Orders of any other Guest in that group, so you wait about forever for THAT to finish... and in two cases, I received NO LUNCH BOX at from her.  I actually received 3 Lunch Boxes in total from the 3 Star Group more than once, no more than the total given by the 2 Star Group.  Note however that another player has reported she gained only 1 Lunch Box from a 1 Star Group, so even there the results are random.

What this means in practical terms is, that if you need 4 Lunch Boxes per day to reach the total needed for the Springtime Base Merge in the Factory before the option expires on 9 April, you may fall short even if you invite the 2 or 3 Star Groups.  You may have to use more than one Passport each day to reach the goal.  If you wish to use the least amount of your own supplies and still achieve the goal, it probably is just as good to invite the 1 Star Group twice, receiving 4 Lunch Boxes per day or invite the 2 Star Group, hoping for 4 Lunch Boxes and, if you receive less, invite THEM or the 1 Star Group again.  The 3 Star Group takes too much from your farm in supplies and time and more often than not, does not give any more Lunch Boxes than the 2 Star Group.

Results for other Players
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Nony Mous, a member of our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group had similar experiences.  She wrote: Special Guests: most of the time, guests do not give lunch boxes. This has been my consistent experience with Levels 1, 2, & 3. After not receiving ANY lunch boxes from guests on two separate visits, I have been paying TC to have the Level 3 guests come. Twice after paying for Level 3, I received ZERO boxes. At the rate unpaid guests are giving lunch boxes, it will be mathematically impossible for anyone to acquire enough boxes by April 9 to complete one base, let alone two. And even if you pay TC for extra passports, your guests do not always give boxes, which they should if one pays for them to come. I've written to support about this, but have yet to receive a response. Thus far, after paying for Level 3 to come five times, I have only 10 lunch boxes, and these include what I received from the other guests as well. So only 10 boxes from 8 visits, and with FOUR visits garnering ZERO lunch boxes (2 paid & 2 unpaid.) Additionally, these guests, especially Level 3, ask for excess amounts of goods, much like the previous special guests who wanted loads of chocolate. These mostly want butter, sandwiches, meat loaf, and chocolate eggs. Jane is the hardest guest and takes the longest time. I use auto bargain until only Jane is left, then call my slowest pets back home.

The following quest sequence, if completed fully should give you one Springtime Base.

Go to the Gallery and swipe the Farm Fest T-shirt icon from the right side of the page into the empty slot on the left.  You will receive 50 Green Mystrons, 5 Medals and the Springtime Base as your Reward.

Go to your Gift Box to find the Springtime Base. It is worth 32 Charm and is a Cleanable Decoration, although it yields only a Purple Gift Box  as well as being a Theme Decoration in the current Park Farm Beauty Contest.

Final Reward: Springtime Base

New Update
xxxxxxxxxx

Batch Cleaning Option
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Note on 22 April:  I do believe this is sorting itself out now and the Clean Tickets option now represents the actual condition of the farms that your pet visits.

Please note that game is extremely glitchy at present and inconsistent so everything I wrote below may vary from farm to farm...  will update when the developers sort it all out.

You now can obtain 'Clean Tickets' from your Country Club Packages (based on the amount you have spent in the game over time) and in Pet Chests that you open.  Open your Neighbours Menu, click the Brush and choose the Neighbour you want to visit remotely.   During this period you will not be able to visit any Neighbours but you can 'x' out the animation of your Pet to work on your farm and even travel to your Island or vice versa.  It actually is your Pet who visits the Neighbour and it takes 10 to 12 seconds to complete for each Neighbour or Buddy chosen.  If you send your Pet to more than one Buddy or Neighbour in a single action, the time will be multiplied by the number he or she visits, limited to 20 at a time.   When the action completes, claim the Reward.

When you initiate the process, you will see the following:  Are you sure you want to use 1 Clean Ticket?   You can use them to collect Cleaning Gift Boxes, Cooking Gift Bags, get Neighbour Rewards and Help your Neighbour all at once.

Note that this is an extra option that carries its own price in the form of the Clean Ticket.  You can still visit the same neighbour or Buddy in the ordinary way and claim Rewards manually or perform actions that are not given through the Clean Ticket option.  Most important, in my view, is the special Buddy interactions in the form of feeding a Pet or tending a Buddy Tree... an automated Pet Visit will not perform these actions for you!

Originally, one was receiving the same Rewards from every Neighbour, irrespective of any real differences between farms.  Now they appear to have sorted out this rather nice glitch and the Rewards are based on the farms you visit.  In other words, if a Farm has the Cooking Bag icon showing in the Neighbour Menu and you choose the automated Visit, you should receive a Cooking Bag from that visit.  If the Farmer has Blue Box Decorations, you should receive a Blue Box but if only Purple Boxes, that is what you will receive.  The game still is glitchy so do not take this as gospel yet!

You can choose different options, by the way in terms of the automated Visit: Island rather than Seaside, Purple Gift Boxes rather than Blue...

Note that you can tap on the 'x' in the corner of the screen to get rid of the animation that shows your Pet cavorting across the screen on his or her way to other farms and there is no problem with gameplay even when you have the option activated for 20 Neighbours/Buddies.  20 is the maximum you can activate at any given time, but if you wish to use more Tickets, simply start a new session. Players are able to use the tickets to visit their Buddies more than once in a way, but this may not have been intended either.  Again will revise this post in a few days depending on how game changes.

Whatever rewards your Pet earns from a neighbour probably will not be available if you visit the same neighbour manually afterwards.  On other words, many players report that, if the Neighbour had dishes at the Cooking Stand and your Pet claimed the Reward during a Clean Ticket visit, you will not be able to claim that one again on the same day from that Neighbour.

Feeding Your Pets
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

A very welcome change in the form of the ability now to feed your Active Pets from the Pet House without forcing them to return home.  You therefore can go to your Pet House during any Guest Visit to give your Pets Food to restore their Stamina without having to search for them or try to dodge behind a large imposing guest to obtain the Food Menu for that Pet.  Wonderful!

Fishing Trade Shop
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This is a wonderful new option.  Note that you now can sell your fish at the Pier for shells and then use the Shells to 'buy' the Fish you want.  If you use the Coin Shop, you should have some fish that are fairly valuable but never used in Recipes such as the Flower Horn Cichlid that sells for 225 Shells or the Seahorse selling for 228 shells.  You can buy a Mackerel for 273 Shells for example..

To use this option, tap on the icon of the fish on a scale to the right of the actual pier.  You will see one tab for selling and one for buying.

If you have a fully upgraded Goldfinger tech, you can make any Smoked Fish in your Smokehouse using the Tech even if you do not have any actual Fish in your Barn of the sort you are smoking.

Experience Bank
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx



Old maximum Level of 150 no longer applies but when you reach that level, you will see a new XP bar at the top left of the screen.   Through this you can reach your 'Experience Bank' where you can use your XP to purchase Bonus Tickets.  With these tickets you can purchase a Bonus Lucky Item for 10 Tokens or a Poodle Card for 40 Bonus Tickets.  The Poodle Cards operate in the same way as any Pet Card.  When you have 100 Poodle Cards, you can trade them for a Poodle.  As always, the gender of the Pet will be random.





24 March 2017

Farm Delivery Quest and Bike Helmet Collection Mission

A new time-restricted traditional Quest sequence of 16 parts has been released in tandem with a Collections Mission.

Premium Items Needed:
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This is one of the first Quests for a very long time that requires a Coffee Machine, a premium machine.  It costs 15 RC in the regular Market but will be complete when purchased.  Other premium items you will need, inter alia, include a Heart Tree, a Mango Tree and a Lime Tree.  New Pet apparel has been added to the Special Sales but sadly I do not see that the Coffee Machine is being offered in any packet deal, nor are either of the Trees that I mentioned as of Friday 24 March.

Note that you often can find items in the Green Mystrons Shop randomly that otherwise can be purchased only with RC.  As previously indicated, the appearance of these items is random, but do look regularly for any premium Tree or Machine or Animal you may be missing as it is better to pay Green Mystrons (if you have them) then RC.  Another place you now can find Trees randomly is the Special Deals (Daily) section of the Market where you pay TC (the new currency that can be earned in-game) rather than RC for premium Trees.  In my Daily Special Deals today, I see the Heart Tree is listed for 700 TC.  I have all the Trees after four years but many players may find a needed Tree here instead of in the regular Tree Department of the Market, although every player will find a different selection both in the Green Mystrons Shop and the Daily Special Deals Shop.

For new players, you do have 11 days to complete both the Collections Mission and the traditional Quest sequence.  Now, if you cannot complete the traditional Quest in time, either because you have not unlocked the Island yet or for any other reason, you should be able to find this Quest after it expires in the Lighthouse and finish it from that location.  The biggest difference between a Quest that is completed while 'active' and one that is completed later through the Lighthouse is that you will not receive a Clam Friendship Flower if you do not complete it (and complete the Collection Set registration) while it is 'active' for all players.  It is great, though, that they have given players opportunities now to complete 'timed' Missions that they either missed in the past or were unable to complete because they lacked something that was needed at that point in time.

The Herb Garden is the Collectable that gives you Herbs.  It is a premium item found in the Collectables section of the Market for 3 RC.  Although I like to have all the Collectables on my farm as it takes time always to amass a good quantity of their products, you now can purchase these items in the Flea Market or E-Mart... our group has a thread where players can request specific items.  You can use TC to simply buy a product needed for a Kitchen Recipe as well in-game.

Neighbour Requests
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

There are two separate tasks in the quest sequence that require items from Neighbours.  I always have trouble on Harvest Moon FDC possibly because I am too sentimental with respect to my old neighbours who have become inactive and thus do not send the item I request.  Again, you do not have to complete the quest sequence in a single day but if you are a player who likes to do precisely that, divide your Neighbour list in two and ask only half of them for the first item.  Unfortunately, I am fortunate if I receive 20 items from 150 players in a 24 hour period and often have to use RC to skip the task to finish the guide quickly.  If you are not near the quest deadline for expiration, however, you are better served by exercising patience and allowing the items to trickle back to you.

Crop List:
xxxxxxxx

One of the best uses of a guide for a quest like this is to see which Crops you will need to harvest next.  The Crops that are given in the tasks are in the following order:  40 Clover, 40 Carrots, 40 Pasture, 40 Rice and finally 60 Peanuts.  You will need to collect 20 Honey from your Beehives for another task so if you do not have it on your Farm at the time when the Clover ripens, wait for the Clover to be pollinated before you harvest it so that you can collect a total of 20 Honey.  Many players, including myself either keep extra Beehives on the farm at all times or buy additional ones when a task like this is listed in order to be able to collect 20 Honey quickly... note as well that you can use the Flight of the Bumblebee to collect Honey from regular Beehives.

Finally, Cane is the Crop for the Collections Mission.  Depending on the size of your farm and your strategy, you either can grow a little at a time from the very start, complete that aspect of the Collections Mission in one fell swoop through the use of farm aids (Fertilisers, Rain, Thunderstorms and Rainbow Rain) or opt out of it by paying RC... or a combination of these.

ATTENTION:  One of the tasks ask that you sell 30,000 Coins worth of items from your Barn.  Most of the cooked dishes you make in the course of the traditional quest sequence will be needed later as ingredients for OTHER dishes.  I suggest you do not sell ANY Cooked Dishes that appear in the task list!

Island Tasks
xxxxxxxxxx

There are few Island Tasks in this quest sequence.  One is to transport 50 Lavender Essential Oil to the Seaside Farm.  You will need 6 of these later to make 6 Lavender Aroma Therapy Bottles which means that you will need 6 Wooden Aroma Bottles, another Island Product.  Transport the Wooden Aroma Bottles to Seaside in advance if you do not have them there.  Unlike the transport of the Lavender Essential Oil, it is not included as a separate task.

Sakura Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

A little note:  Harvest Moon FDC is losing rank in the Farm Beauty Contest now.  If you have ANY votes to spare now, please direct them to Freyashawk's Harvest Moon FDC farm.

Collect Bike Helmets
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The reward for the Collections Mission is a Cayenne Pepper Rack, a Collectable.

  Skip for 10 RC

Harvest 6 Cherries
  Skip for 6 RC

Collect 40 Eggs
  Skip for 10 RC

Reward: 2500 Coins, 160 XP

Darryl:  It's not a secret.  I can't wait to tell you, but don't tell any one else!

Farm Delivery 2
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  I was writing a business plan.  It's an awesome idea, believe me!  I'll tell you after we have finished working on the farm, okay?

Feed Holstein Cow 40 Times
  Skip for 10 RC
  (The task completes when you begin the batch production if you use Batch Production)

Harvest 40 Carrots
  Skip for 10 RC

Harvest 4 Cinnamon
  Skip for 4 RC

Reward: 2500 Coins, 160 XP

Darryl:  You see, I told you it's awesome.  We need to earn more money to make this plan happen!

Farm Delivery 3
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Where does my idea come from?  I saw a food delivery man drive past our farm recently.  So I thought we could do something similar.  It's good to expand our farm business in alternative ways.

Produce 8 Cherry Jam
  Skip for 4 RC

Produce 40 Sugar
  Skip for 10 RC

Prepare 8 Condensed Milk
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Milk and 1 Sugar

Reward: 2500 Coins, 170 XP

Darryl:  How about a 'Farm to Door' service?  Customers order our products via an app, and once we receive their Orders, we can deliver their products to their door.

Farm Delivery 4
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  We had best enact this plan now, before other farmers do!  Let's start by earning some money by selling products in the market.  We need money to buy delivery bicycles, right?

Collect 20 Honey
  Skip for 10 RC

Prepare 8 Cake Flour
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 2 Oat Flour and 2 Rye Flour

Sell Products worth 30000 Coins from your Seaside Barn
  Skip for 5 RC
  (Note that you can sell 330 Blueberries to make more than 30,000 Coins.  If you have been playing for any length of time, you should have more Blueberries than you need.  Irrespective of this, this morning, in a rush, I wrote: This honestly is one I am going to skip because I find I never have enough products now for all the Guest Orders and Coffee House Orders and Daily Order Board... would rather pay 5 RC... and I am probably the ultimate packrat, so you may not wish to follow my example at ANY level...and for low level farmers, you may wish to sell your stuff, as reaching specific sales totals often is a farm expansion requirement as well.  This comment of mine elicited a storm of response from group members who suggested selling blueberries, Old Boots, Sand, and so on but it goes against the grain for me personally to get rid of anything in Seaside now.  Perhaps those Old Boots will be used to merge something in the Factory one day...)

Darryl:  Well done, farmer.  Let's prepare for the next step!

Reward: 2500 Coins, 170 XP
Special Reward: Mission Gift Box

Farm Delivery 5
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Okay, now we have bicycles to deliver products, but we haven't installed any delivery boxes on the bicycles yet.  Where can we find those boxes?

Ask for 20 Delivery Boxes from your Neighbours
  Skip for 20 RC

Prepare 8 Butter
  Skip for 8 RC

  Each requires 1 Milk and 1 Milk to make.

Harvest 40 Pasture
  Skip for 5 RC

Reward: 2500 Coins, 180 XP

Darryl:  Good idea, asking the Neighbours for help.  They were so kind to us and now we can save our budget for something else.  Good job, farmer!

Farm Delivery 6
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Transportation checked!  Hang on,  may we pause our delivery business to do some chores please before Grandma complains?

Finish Today's Order Board
  Skip for 10 RC
  Note that the second material for the Springtime Base should appear as one of the Rewards for the highlighted Order on the Daily Order Board but is not appearing on Friday 24 March yet.  It makes more sense here to refresh individual orders you cannot or do not wish to complete than to pay 10 RC to skip the entire task!

Produce 40 Beef
  Skip for 10 RC

Prepare 8 Milk Cookies
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Condensed Milk and 1 Wheat Flour

Darryl:  Thank you for today.  I think it should be okay for now.  Let's continue planning our business venture tomorrow.

Reward: 2500 Coins, 180 XP

Farm Delivery 7
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  I looked at the barn inventory this morning, and I have to say 'WOW!'  We have so many different products.  I do think it's better to choose a few types of products to sell on the app first to find out customer demands.  What do you think?

Place Cayenne Pepper Rack on your Farm
  Reward from Collection Mission
  Skip for 10 RC

Prepare 8 Heart Cookies
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Pink Heart Fruit and 1 Milk Cookie

Fish with the Bone Fishhook 8 Times
  Skip for 8 RC
  Note that you can 'miss' one catch to drive the total of attempts up to 8, even though you are given only 7 casts.

Reward: 2500 Coins, 190 XP

Darryl:  Maybe it's time to tell every one what we've been working on.  Hopefully they won't laugh at my idea.

Farm Delivery 8
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  We got so carried away talking about our business plan that we forgot to eat this morning.   Shall we grab something to eat now?

Harvest 6 Limes
  Skip for 6 RC

Prepare 8 Glasses of Limeade
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Lime and 2 Sugar

Harvest 40 Rice
  Skip for 10 RC

Reward: 2500 Coins, 190 XP

Darryl:  That was delicious!  Should we add it to the selling list?

Special Reward: Cat Themed Pet House Base

Farm Delivery 9
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Apart from selling raw products, we also should have customisable options for our customers.  Maybe we can try beverages first.  Customers can customise their own drink by choosing a few raw products.  Then we will make the drink for them.

Produce 8 Glasses of Cherry Juice
  Skip for 8 RC

Harvest 8 Coconuts
  Skip for 8 RC

Prepare 8 Coconut Milk
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Coconut and 2 Sugar

Reward: 2500 Coins, 200 XP

Darryl:  I hope this will work.  I'm getting nervous!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  I think we should not only customise our beverages but also customise our food!

  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 2 Cheddar Cheese and 2 Butter

Darryl:  What else should we do?  Can we open an online shop soon?  I want to see some feedback!

Farm Delivery 11
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  One more thing, farmer!  I think we should create our own packaging too!  Good packaging and interesting designs will attract the attention of potential customers!  Let's ask our neighbours to help us again!

Ask for 20 Paper Bags from Neighbours
  Skip for 20 RC

Craft 6 Red Cord Necklaces
  Skip for 6 RC
  The task is counted as soon as it is begun in the Beauty Shop.  Each requires 1 Angora Hair, 1 Wool and 2 Roses.

Prepare 8 Baked Fish Cayenne Pepper
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Fish and Potatoes and 2 Cayenne Pepper
  You can purchase 1 Cayenne Pepper for 40 TC.  If you do not have TC, the conversion rate is 100 TC for 1 RC, making the cost for buying this ingredient for the Recipe almost 1 RC per recipe.  If you have NO Cayenne Pepper yet, the cost of buying it for this Recipe is 7 RC rather than the 8 RC needed to skip the task.  You WILL need this dish later in the sequence for the Fish Pie.

Darryl:  All good now!  I think we're ready to launch our business and let the world see it!

Reward: 2500 Coins, 210 XP

Farm Delivery 12
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Today's the day!  Let's see how many orders we get!  I'll be the delivery man.  Hehe!

Transport 50 Lavender Essential Oil to Seaside Farm
   Skip for 12 RC

Harvest 8 Mangoes
  Skip for 8 RC

Prepare 8 Dishes of Sweet Mango
  Skip for 8 RC
  Each requires 1 Mango and 1 Honey Syrup
  Each Honey Syrup requires 8 Honey and 4 Milk

Reward: 2500 Coins, 210 XP

Not bad!  Our first day launching this business and we received far more orders than we expected!

Farm Delivery 13
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Darryl:  Wow!  We received a lot of good reviews from our customers!  Shall we send them thank you gifts?

Harvest 60 Peanuts
  Skip for 15 RC

Craft 6 Lavender Aroma Bottles
  Skip for 6 RC

  Make certain that you have 6 Wooden Aroma Bottles on your Seaside Farm in advance.  Each requires 2 Wool Yarn and 1 Cedar Wood.  Transport them to Seaside to make the Lavender Aroma Bottles in the Beauty Shop.

  Each requires 1 Wooden Aroma Bottle, 1 Lavender Essential Oil and 1 Distilled Water.  Distilled Water is a free gift but it can be collected from the Water Fountain as well, a Decoration that is part of the current Sakura Theme in the Farm Beauty Contest, and one of the most beautiful in the game.

Prepare 8 Hamburger Steak
  Skip for 8 RC

  Each requires 2 Beef and 1 Fried Vegetables with Soy Sauce
  Each Fried Vegetable with Soy Sauce requires 1 Soy Sauce and 1 Spinach

Farm Delivery 14
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Special Reward: Flower Barrel Decoration

Collection Set
xxxxxxxxxxxx

The Collection Set this time consists of the Cayenne Pepper Rack, the Flower Barrel Decoration and the Heart Tree.  When all three have been registered in the Gallery, you should see an exclamation point over your Lighthouse.  Tap on it to go to the correct Mission where you can collect your Reward.  If you complete this before the expiration of the Quest, you will receive a Clam Friendship Flower as well as the usual 88 Green Mystrons and 1 RC.  If you cannot complete it in time but must complete it later by activating the tasks you missed from the Lighthouse, you still can register the Collectin to receive the Green Mystrons and 1 RC but you will not be able to claim the Clam Friendship Flower.
