A farm is a property you own that you can use to grow various plants with the Gardening skill.
Getting Started With SeedsEdit
You'll need seeds in order to plant crops. You will find some seeds at the Truce Ground north of Palmia around Kumiromi's altar. You can get more seeds by worshiping Kumiromi, who will grant you the power to create seeds out of foods when they rot. Seeds from rotten food will not necessarily create the same category of food. At higher favor, he may also answer a rayer by granting a Cute Fairy servant who will create random seeds when fed.
You can get a bunch of rotten food at the beginning of the game by looking for the three fruit trees in Vernis and the two fruit trees in Palmia. Bash the trees to make the fruits fall, pick them up, then wander around until the food rots. You can visit fruit trees every two days to harvest one more fruit per tree.
Rotten food that has been cooked can still generate seeds, so feel free to practice your Cooking skill on food before letting it rot for seeds. Contrarily, food that has rotten can still be cooked, and raw food decays faster, so you can wait for food to rot and then cook it (and then drop it).
In Elona+, Kumiromi's passive bonus allowing you to turn rotten food into seeds has been removed and replaced with a bonus to stamina regeneration. You instead get seeds as a reward for The Harvest Time quests. The cute fairy may still be acquired and fed to generate random seeds; also, the Statue of Kumiromi can be used once every 120h to produce herb, unknown and artifact seeds.
Fruit seed: Generates fruits.
Vegetable seed: Generates vegetables and 'fruits' like quwapanas.
Herb seed: Generates herbs.
Gem seed: Generates ores.
Unknown seed: Generates semi-random items such as random foods (including bags of flour and generic corpses), ores, gems, miscellaneous junk items (such as bowls and stumps), and even artifact rings, amulets, and potions of cure corruption. Saves the game if an artifact is picked.
Artifact seed: Generates artifacts. Saves the game when picked.
Buying Your FarmEdit
You can purchase a deed for farm at goods vendors or general vendors. Higher-ranked vendors are more likely to carry them. Depending on your Negotiation skill, it will cost somewhere around 40,000-50,000 gold to buy one.
Beginning Your FarmEdit
To plant seeds that you have collected, simply use theool command on a seed while you're standing on any non-walled tile. The seed will be planted and will appear as a bud in the tile. Each time you plant a seed, your Gardening skill goes up. In Elona+ however, planting provides no training. Your skill goes up when successfully harvesting from mature plants, instead.
Your farm initially has a fruit tree placed in the lower-left corner. You can use it to get more rotten fruit from your farm or move it to a new spot of your choosing.
Depending on your Gardening skill, planted crops may die before they mature. As your Gardening skill improves, the survival rate of your crops will improve. Praying to Kumiromi with adequate favor will reward you with a precious gem stone that can revive a single dead crop or advance its growth by one stage once every 72 hours.
Seeds do not have to be planted in the field spots to grow. Current statistics actually show that in normal Elona, field tiles actually cut the chance in half for plants to finish growing. However, in Elona+ the field tiles give a large bonus to growing.
Care and HarvestingEdit
Once planted, crops will grow without any extra work. Just come back after a week or so, and you will hopefully return to find ripe crops holding anything from produce to items, depending on the type of seed planted. Some crops may not survive and will be withered. Fruits and vegetables are the easiest to grow successfully, and Elona+ players are recommended to start growing these as their first crops and save more advanced seeds until their skill increases.
To harvest your crops, use the Easy Gardening' states that it's possible for healthy crops to become sick and wither from proximity to already-withered crops, but it is unknown whether that is reflected by in-game behavior.et command. Depending on your Gardening skill, the crop may regenerate after harvesting, so you may not need another seed! You can also pull withered crops out to clear the tile with the get command.

Organic fertilizer (Elona+)Edit
In Elona+ 1.18 organic fertilizer has been introduced, which can be used ( ) on flowering but not fully grown crop to make it immediately fully grown; this also increases the quality of vegetable and fruit crops. Fertilizer is made by leaving perishable/rotten food (and Dead Fish and Garbage and "shit") on 'compost' terrain in the farm. If you created your farm pre-1.18 and then upgraded, your farm won't have any compost terrain and it will be impossible to make any with a register or house board, meaning you'll have to reset your farm to get them, thus erasing any items or crops your farm has. It's recommended to pick the crops as clean as possible and collect any items (including the fruit tree) before resetting your farm.
Fertilizer is created at the same rate as fruit tree regenerate harvest, you can use this for assembly line "get fertilizer - bash tree over the compost pile - wait"
Elona+ changes Edit
It appears that in recent versions of Elona+, animal type monsters periodically spawn on farms. The level of creatures spawned is influenced by the Gardening skill.
Creatures such as vorpal rabbits, boars, moles, horses, dragon bats, electric sheep, giraffes, king scorpions, cockatrices and king cobras have been observed to appear. This can be fatal to low level characters with a relatively high Gardening skill, since dangerous high level monsters can spawn.At least in E+ v1,72 you can plant seeds outside of the crops and see them grow as if they were planted on a crop.
