Mushroom Picking Quest and Garden Gnome Collection Mission

A new time restricted Quest has been released in tandem with a Collection Mission.  The Reward for completion of the Collection Mission is a 'Collectable' in the form of the Chanterelle Planter.  You will not find this in the Market while the Quest is active so must complete the Collection Mission if you wish to harvest the Chanterelles that will be needed in the traditional Quest.

Some of the members of our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group liked my addition of lists of all the Crops and Batch Production items you need for these Quests so I am adding them now to each post for the timed missions.  You will find the actual tasks and dialogue below, but here at the start are convenient lists for you:

Crop List
xxxxxxxx

40 Cucumbers
40 Pitaya
50 Sweet Potatoes
50 Pineapples
50 Cassava (Island Crop)
50 Lotus Flowers

Transport List
xxxxxxxxxxxx

20 Beef Salami to Island
20 Ketchup to Island

Transport for Ingredients
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

16 Zucchini to Seaside

One of the later tasks requires Zucchini as an ingredient.  This is an Island Crop.  You will need to transport 16 Zucchini from the Island for use in the recipe if you have not done so previously.  The Transport is not a task, but you will need the item to make 8 Mushroom Stuffed Zucchini, a new recipe and the first of its kind.  Never before has an Island Crop been used in the Kitchen.

Batch Production
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

40 Buffalo Milk
12 Orange Juice
40 Buffalo Milk Cheese
40 Angora Hair
20 Cornbread
50 Beef
20 Pitaya Jam
50 Ketchup
50 Cassava Flour (Island)
30 Cranberry Pies (Island)
60 Dried Kiwi (Island)
20 Beef Hot Dogs (Island)

This site is maintained by Freyashawk, aka Eugenia Martino.  You are welcome to post a link to my guide in your Facebook Groups but please do give me credit for the work I do.  I try to update the site constantly with new information and complete quests quickly for the guide often only by spending RC to skip steps (as in this case where I paid 10 RC to skip the Collection Mission temporarily).

My farm is Harvest Moon FDC.  If you find my site helpful, please consider voting for my farm in the Farm Beauty Contest.  I always appreciate your support.  I do not allow any advertising on my site and I do try to work hard for my fellow farmers by posting helpful information.  So I thank you with all my heart for your continued votes in the game.

Strategy Consideration
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

For new farmers or farmers who recently reached the level where these Missions have been unlocked for them:

In many cases, you can complete the traditional Quest sequence later if unable to complete all tasks at this point either because you have not unlocked the Island or do not have an Island Machine needed or mastery level needed.  What you cannot perform later is the Collection Mission that is linked to the traditional Quest.  In this case, the Reward is a 'Collectable' which means that, once the Quest expires, it should be added to the Market in the Collectable Department.  It then may require only a small amount of RC to purchase it.  When the Collection Mission reward is a Stove House Recipe, it too will be added to the Market once the Mission expires but the cost usually is higher than the cost for a 'Collectable'.  Where the Reward is a premium Tree, you usually can find it in the Tree department of the Market while the Mission still is active and can opt out of the Collection Mission simply by using RC to purchase the Tree.  I always indicate this in the Quest itself at the point where there is a task to 'place' the Reward item.  Here this occurs in Mushroom Packing 9.  As you have 11 days to complete the Mission and you will need Chanterelles, you may wish to complete the Collection Mission before moving on here.  I only opted to pay 10 RC for Harvest Moon FDC to skip the task in order to be able to finish this guide as quickly as possible.
