New SoS:FoMT Videos, Stranded Sails Release Info, and Doraemon Sales | Posted at 11:37 AM on 12 July 2019

Happy Farm'n Friday! Earlier this year I made an attempt to grow Goji. The shrub isn't as easy to sprout as I thought it would be. Two of the plants survived after the multiple attempts at growing them. After growing large enough, the two went into larger pots and placed outside on the patio.

That's when those pesky tree rats got to them. Apparently, the leaves are rather interesting from the viewpoint of a squirrel, and the little rats plucked the leaves off of both plants. I don't know if the leaves were eaten or if the squirrels were simply being jerks and pulled them all off, but they left me with two potted sticks. Thaaaanks...

After being stripped naked by voracious tree rats, the plants were moved to a higher spot and started to recover a bit. One of them is still trying its best to grow, but this other one has happily sprouted new leaves and stems. Perhaps in a few years we'll have goji to harvest? We'll see how it goes!

SoS:FoMT New Promo Videos

This week Marvelous released two promo videos on Twitter showing the protagonists in the upcoming Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town taking care of crops an animals.

In the fall-themed crop video, the protagonists tills the soil, plants seeds, harvest some ripe carrots, and then ships the carrots. The carrots stack within the rucksack, which are then shipped as a stack. In the original GBA game players had to ship each crop individually. Though hiring the little Nature Sprites made things so much easier! The background music played in this video is a remake of the original fall-season theme song:

In the second video, the protagonist is caring for animals inside of her barn. She brushes her alpaca and sheep, milks her cow, and adds fodder to the feed bin. With the updated stacking functionality, adding fodder is much faster than in the original game. The background music played in this video is a remake of the summer-season theme song:
