Steam Farm'n Game Discounts, May BokuMobile Events, and a HM GB2 Comic | Posted at 02:07 PM 06 May 2022

Happy Farm'n Friday! Lately, I have been toying with what vegetable to plant next. While doing the weekly grocery shopping last weekend, the natural order of things pointed me in the right direction: cauliflower.

Cauliflower is one of the few veggies that Mr. Fogu will voluntarily eat, along with zucchini, broccoli, spinach, and corn. He hates tomatoes, cabbage, brussel sprouts, kale, radishes, red lettuce, onions (unless they're coated in batter and deep-fried), cucumbers, and so on. He even dislikes yams! As he's such a picky veggie eater, we regularly buy cauliflower. Last weekend, I was in for a sticker shock when a single head of normal 'ol cauliflower rang up as $6.60 at the checkout stand. Egads! Scew that, I just grow it myself! (cue billowing cape animation while I turn my back and walk into the garden)

The downside is it's little late to be planting cauliflower. Cauliflower is a cole crop, meaning it produces its best harvest when the temperatures are colder. When the outdoor temp is too hot, their texture can become terrible, or they can flower and go to seed. Luckily, I did manage to find a cauliflower seed variety that can tolerate warmer weather, plus it should be harvestable in about 45 days. That's the plan, anyway.

I'll have to tolerate the high cost of cauliflower in the meantime...

As for my adventures through Rune Factory 5, it turns out I didn't need super-armor and leveling up to clear the Kelve Volcano Region. I assumed that the Flower Lion gate just past the Ancient Forest indicated the monster's strength in the Lava Caves. Those seed-shooting evil plants killed me multiple times! After upgrading my equipment and levels, the dungeon was terribly easy . I'm now over leveled! So I had to switch the game's difficulty from Normal to Hard. Now there's a forgetful fellow in Rigbarth who needs SEED's assistance. Off to the Meline Crystal Caverns I go!

HM2 GB Comic

Here's a newly translated comic from the Harvest Moon 2 GB guidebook, drawn by Igusa Matsuyama! "Peat" continues to cause headaches for Sarah while trying to teach her how to run a farm.

There aren't actually golden cows in HM2. Oh dear Pete...

Until next time!

(Acquired some broccoli and nasturtium seeds too!)
