Stages of Soybeans and Buckwheat in Island of Happiness
For those who wish to become ultra-successful farmers, here are some screenshots of Grains at various stages in Island of Happiness.
In one screenshot, you will see two stages of Soybeans. At the bottom is Edamame, ready for harvest, distinguished by the small purple blossoms. In the centre is another crop of Soybeans almost ready to reach the final stage. There are only two rows instead of three as I harvested the first row when they first displayed the blossoms that characterise Edamame. This plot is NOT at the final stage yet. The pods must change colour before you can harvest true Soybeans. In the upper plot is another crop of Soybeans at the first stage.
Buckwheat and Wheat are displayed in the other screenshot. The Wheat crops are at the first and second stages. The Buckwheat, distinguished by its reddish stalk, is at the first stage. I will add a screenshot of the Buckwheat I formerly grew which was fully ripe but never harvested.
