or as we like to quote "Many New Year!" (Kudos to those who know this quote!)

Anyways, I sincerely hope that 2010 is way better than 2009 . . . for everyone!

Currently, and secretly, this kitty is plotting mischief and merriment . . . . . (insert coy, sly, spy smile here!)

But alas, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lol! Before you go making any more cost-benefit analyses on new seeds, google "Farmville tips". There are a few sites that have them figured out for you already. And since you become able to plant new things each time you level up, your "most valuable crop" may not always remain the same. Raspberries are a good bet, though, if you have time to harvest them before they wither.

I recommend going after as many ribbons as possible - each gives an increasing number of coins and exp. Neighbor as many folks as possible - more neighbors get you more benefit when you help their farms, and it's that many more people fertilizing your crops, as well. Also, expanding your farm to a bigger size requires 2 things: enough coins and enough neighbors.

Mostly, it does seem to come down to how much time you have free to play. If you have time to plant several short-time crops over the course of a day, it helps. I have a friend who doesn't have a "normal" 9-5 job; he's a playwright, who started farming several months after I did, but he's several levels above me because his schedule afforded him a lot more time to play.

Hope some of this helps! :-)

I've been adding new crops to my list, but raspberries are still the best overall. Right now, I have a bunch of pumpkins planted since I'll be going to sleep soon. Figured those should be ready by the time I wake up again without any withering. =)

I recommend going after as many ribbons as possible - each gives an increasing number of coins and exp.

I've been collecting those pretty quickly without even trying. I suppose I might try going after specific ones as they get harder to acquire, but for now, they aren't a big priority.

Also, expanding your farm to a bigger size requires 2 things: enough coins and enough neighbors.

Yeah, I realized a number of hours ago I made a big mistake using all of my extra cash to buy trees to decorate the edges of the farm that didn't have enough space for regular crops. Had I not done that, I could have already expanded my farm. Do'h! At the time, I didn't have enough neighbors to expand, but now I do but find myself with not enough coins. I'm saving up for it now. I'll be on a bigger farm shortly, though. Probably as soon as I finish picking pumpkins. =)

Which beach are you at?

Will be at Edisto one more day. We found a box that is not listed while we were looking for a box that has gone missing.
We have also been to James Island two days and may go back today.

I've gotten ~50 in a day but it was at a Mystery Gather. I had a mini notebook and just black ink. We were on a stamp and go mission. There were 4 parks, all packed with boxes. I was only able to get the boxes in 3 of them. The last set of boxes Disc Lava and I ran through. I came in 3rd for most boxes found for the day. There were prizes for who found the most. Poison Ivy came in first but he started very early, predawn. Most of the boxes were planted there for a short time.

Our record for one day is 58.
That was at the very first RED WHITE & YOU event in Wilksboro. Chihuahua Grande went boxing with us and she logged 69, only because we had hidden 11 of the boxes she found.
In her words "Charlie tried to kill us... dragging us from pillar to post all over the place, I thought I'd have to grab ahold of him and slap him around..... This is NOT how Dina and I roll".
*LOL*
It was fun, but we couldn't actually enjoy the hike or the views or whatever, going that fast.

We got 40 in two days at that event - that's serious boxing for us (me and two littler kids ;-)) They were all planted in such interesting places, and we did get to enjoy all the places (like the old school/museum!). That still ranks as one of our favorite boxing outings!

You only get XP from Raspberries on your first crop, then you don't get them again. I would stick with STrawberries if you want a fast growing crop.

Welcome Ryan! BTW.... for everyone: if you trap your farmer in the center square with haybales or fencing, it's much easier to plant/harvest crops, or to have someone fertilize your crops.

We did somewhere in the 30's down in Woofruff. Mostly drive-by but a few like a train series that we had to hike. Time of year also makes a big difference.....summer.

I personally would go with "meatless" and the vegetarians can decide if it fits their particular definition or not. However you decide, I think it is great you are indexing this way.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you have put into this--and thanks as well to everyone who has contributed. I know this is going to be one of my favorite cookbooks!!

TT--creative inner pouches? Can't wait to see some of those!

My letter boxing ambition is to actually plant. I have accepted that I am just not a carver BUT foudn the stamp swap board where people WANT to carve for me, so that is good.



I got a couple books, all along the lines of "Ohio Oddities" LOL>

Atlas Quest: International Letterboxing
I'm so glad to see someone else who has analyzed the per crop profit. My friends laughed at me and asked why I was only planting "x" kinds of crops. Once I told them why I was doing it I started getting phone calls from one asking which crops were better and another who began to plant whatever I was planting. After I reached a certain level I thought it was a fun thing to do to plant a crop just to see if they would follow suit. :0)

I've relaxed on planting only what was the highest profit for now. I've started just planting what I know I have time to get harvested with my schedule. Some days I can do short term crops and other times I have to go with what takes a couple days to ripen.
