The website is not officially affiliated, sponsored, endorsed, or employed by the developers of Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, or River King. This is simply a fan site.

SDV Demo for NSO in Japan, Pacha Free Demo, Switch Farm'n Game Sales, and HM2 Comic | Posted at 01:40 PM 10 June 2022

Happy Farm'n Friday! Something has been bothering the hybrid watermelon plants :( When the first of the four plants got weak and wilted, I figured it was a fluke. But now a second one has started to wilt too. I don't see any evidence of the slugs I'm constantly combating, but there are pill bugs - those little buggers that roll up into a ball when disturbed. They tend to eat decaying material, not fresh plants, so I assume they're evidence of a problem and not the root cause. Perhaps it's the weather that is rotting the watermelon... it's been colder than I remember, plus we have had a LOT of rain.

I also finally got Ludmilla to appear in Rune Factory 5. I just needed to continue with the story to see her set up shop in Rigbarth. Captain Livia sent me back into the Belpha Ruins to retrieve an item for her, which simply uncovered more mysteries!

I think we're almost recovered from Covid as well. Just some mild head congestion left, which I expect to be gone within a few more days. Our local health authority is expecting cases to go up for another week, then start to decreases after that.
