A. Around the Farm
-=============-
Since this game is about farming, you will be in your farm for the 

majority of the game. Before you can start planting seeds, you will 

need to clear your farm. After the farm is cleared of all rocks, 

weeds, and stumps you can begin working in the fields. It is wise to 

set an area off for grass seeds because you will need grass to feed 

your animals. I set up a fence around the buildings in my farm to 

place grass seeds in.
-=========-
1. Cleaning the Farm
-=========-
The first thing you should notice is that your farm is covered in 

rocks, weeds, and tree stumps. To fix this, you will need the Axe 

and the Hammer. Grab these from your tool shed and start cleaning. 

Large rocks and stumps need extra time to destroy. Six swings from 

the hammer will destroy a large rock or one swing for a small rock 

while six swings from the axe will destroy stumps. Pull weeds out of 

the ground when you do not have anything in your hands.

crops. Go to town and buy some turnips or potatoes. (assuming it's
