I apologize for the short post today (even moreso than usual). It’s been a long week outside of Joensuu Farm, and expensive plumbing issues can be a real demotivator.
I found out I can break the purple rock at the right side of the entrance to the mine.
I met a hooded dwarf dude in there. He doesn’t seem to do much, and I can’t understand his language. I noticed he had a friendship score like most other NPCs do, so I sprinted home and grabbed an extra Dwarf Scroll I had lying around. If any gift would work on him, it had to be that, right?
I’m not sure if that means he liked it or not. For now it’s still a big mystery. Perhaps I have another code to try and decipher?
I had a harvest of yams, cranberries, eggplant, and grape, so I should get a substantial profit today.
The day quickly turned into a foraging day when I went south to the forest to check for the travelling caravan.
A good fortune means I’ll do some fishing this afternoon and hope for something good.
Emily is starting to send letters. Friendship is progressing as planned :)
I have a week to prepare my best stuff to show off at next week’s fair, so that will be what I’m focusing on until then.
I caught this on TV in the morning – it’s a good heads-up that I should probably start saving some of my gold-star crops and other quality items.
Another lost item request in the mailbox today:
I kept an eye out for it as I ventured up to the mountains to check out the spot where that boulder used to be.
Willy beat me there and showed me where there was something shiny in the river.
Looks like I can start panning for gold now. At least, I hope there will be gold – Willy didn’t specify what kind of ore it was, but I’m hoping to get some new sprinklers installed soon!
I walked all along the river without finding any shimmering spots for panning, so I gave up the search and went to visit Emily before she left for work.
She liked the blueberry tart, though not at much as yesterday’s aquamarine.
Still not progressing past 2/10 though… what other blue things can I find?
And now I’m at the weekly two-gift limit again, so I have until next Sunday to either mine for more aquamarines or try to find something else she’ll like.
One of my mixed seeds grew into an artichoke, which is a new crop that Pierre doesn’t sell. I put it into the seed maker and got two more back, which I planted with some quality fertilizer. They take 8 days to grow.
Lewis posted on the bulletin board asking for a sea cucumber to be delivered by the end of the day. I did some fishing in the ocean and ended up finding a super cucumber, but no regular ones.
Today was focused on completing some new bundles.
I had Demetrius’ “Researcher’s Bundle” ready to turn in, and I just needed a blackberry to complete the Fall Foraging Bundle.
While searching Cindersap Forest for a blackberry, I found the weekly caravan was here today. Remembering the lucky find from last time I shopped at the caravan, I knew I had to check what he was selling.
Check out today’s eggplant harvest with the Quality Fertilizer – only 2 out of 12 were of regular quality, with 6 silver and 4 gold ones.
