Here is one such guide that that recommends optimal monsters, however, it's an endgame mix so the challenge is build great mixes as you go.
interesting facts about this mix, compared to my own:
mix recommended produces a large amount of cabbage.
the summer mix is low on onions, high in tomato(I like being able to make Ratatouille).
autumn mix is good, just kinda slow to build up.
winter mix is good, I should have gone back and started producing light/dark crystals, but I have a surplus from the summer fireworks nightime sale.
Currently, I expend 2 earth crystals from my troll king to make musuo, and sell for 5820. instead I could make Rakshasa and Shinza to sell for similar profit.
The mostest importantest secret of the game is the Summer 19 monster parts sale at night.http://faqs.ign.com/articles/119/1199948p1.html
If you use this sale, you will be able to be rich and max out carpentry. I wish I would have bought more magic powder&knife points for katana production, and more insect skins for profitably getting rid of silver.
