The Field works by planting different kinds of seeds and grains in the available plots of land inside. You then have the choice to:
- Water the plants as needed and wait for them to grow naturally
- Play a music minigame that allows the plants to grow within seconds
Once the plants are fully grown, they can then be used as ingredients for different kinds of dishes and meals that you can cook in the kitchen. To help you, this guide will go teach you everything you need to know about the Field.
Unlocking the Field
The Field gets introduced to you very early in the game by Gwen through the “Seeds for the Future” request, after she teaches you how to cut trees and buy seeds from the Raccoon Shops.
Since this section of the game is part of the “tutorial,” then the Field automatically gets introduced to you, along with the materials you need to build it. Its blueprint also gets unlocked after getting the Beginner Blueprint Station from Albert’s Shipyard.
How To Build the Field
|Material||Where/How to Get|
|15 Maple Logs||Maple logs are made by cutting down maple trees, found in:
|3 Limestones||Mined from the nodes in:
If you’d like to plant more seeds, you also have the option to plant more than one Field. However, note that doing so doubles the cost of the materials, at least until you build the fourth copy.
How To Use the Field
After building the Field, Gwen will head inside and teach you how to use it. Here’s a quick step-by-step explanation:
Step 1: Get inside the Field and interact with any of the three plots.
Step 2: Your inventory will open, showing you all of the seeds that are available for planting.
Step 3: Confirm the seeds you want to grow, and make sure to water them whenever a water drop icon appears at the top of the plot. Watering the plant before this icon appears doesn’t help the plant reach the next stage of growth.
Step 4: Keep watering until the plants are fully grown and ready for harvesting. Once they’re harvested, repeat the process all over again. You can plant up to three seeds per Field at any time.
Learning how to plant and use the Field ends the “tutorial” part of the game.
Here are all of the seeds you can plant at the Field:
|Linen Seed||3 Linen Fibers|
|Corn Seed||5 Corns|
|Coffee Bean Seed||2 Coffee Beans|
|Rice Seed||3 Rice|
|Tea Seed||2 Tea Leaves|
|Sunflower Seed||4 Sunflower Seeds|
|Garlic Seed||1 Garlic|
|Sugar Cane Seed||2 Sugar Canes|
|Cotton Seed||4 Cotton Fibers|
|Tomato Seed||3 Tomatoes|
|Wheat Seed||3 Wheat|
How To Play “Plantasia Fantastica”
If you already have Summer on your boat, she will teach you how to make plants grow faster via the “Jiving Chives” request. Here’s how to play the mini-game:
Step 1: Stand beside any of the plants in the Field.
Step 2: Hold the interact button to bring out the guitar. Once Stella starts playing, hit the right notes as they appear at the top.
Step 3: The more notes you play, the faster the plants grow. You can play this song anytime there’s a plant in the Field.
