would be nice to see you there. i've enjoyed many evenings of connecting with luce there, just chatting & sharing news while we harvest and plant. it's very... relaxing. a modern day "backyard fence chat".
i have no plants in my house. no plants, no pets... purposeful decision. i do love gardening tho, which i'm also currently not doing...and i am resolutely NOT a gamer, at all.
but there are many things about FT that are quite alluring, and one of them is how the plants go through different phases as they grow. they appear as seeds until they hit 25% maturity, and with each 25% they evolve. and you can watch a bare, brown, plain dirt farm morph into incredible lushness and color, which you can manipulate many ways. and then it's all harvested and a bare-brown again.
lol...you don't have to worry about which plant to grow next to other ones, no. the gifts? accept them. you can place the trees and animals on your farm if you'd like. or you can hold off for later
there's a little store icon -- click it and you'll find a seed page. try only one-day crops for now... or the 4-hr grapes or 2-hr raspberries. don't abandon those raspberries after 2 hrs or you'll lose them.
I can't wait to see how the carrots, blueberries, pineapples and peppers look in the various stages. Tomorrow, when I'm at home, I'm going to try the new 2 hour raspberries. I'm also looking forward to seeing the new flowers I planted in full bloom!
