I noticed something after playing gen 1 twice.
When I switched generation after 12 am, the crops (full grown) won't be destroyed, as mentioned by Misti Rose
what I noticed is, the 2nd time I played, I tried to grow phantom crops. when I switched generation they're all still seeds.
no matter what time I switched, they'll be destroyed in the 2nd gen.
it seems that switching after 12 am to avoid storm only will work if the crops already sprout.
does anyone ever experienced the same?
