    You get a good number of drops. I only got 55 this last harvest, so I am going to be short to complete the last step, unless I can scavenge the last 23 from short term crops.

    This really isn't the event for me. You need to be available during the day to harvest and I just cant do that. I lost 10 hours today. Wasted it with putting in roses in the hopes that I would be able to harvest them when they were done. Maybe I'll see what tomorrow brings and beg out then. If I couldn't do the harvest for drops today, I am definitely not going to be able to do it tomorrow for drops and crops.

    The question of how to grow these two harvests at the same time also worries me.
    We have a saying . Since it is a proverb, it can lose its real meaning when translated into another language.
    But in summary: if it happens, it happens, otherwise it's fate . Or maybe like this: as much as possible or else it's fate.
    After all, it's a game. We cannot be expected to let it distract us from our real life. We do as much as we have fun.

    I had the 1st dose of Vaccine yesterday. Wait for me real life. I'm coming very soon.8):music::pxD

    I only needed 7 Potsicles/Popsicles and just got four from Hay. I just about have time for one more Hay harvest so if I don't get the required four this time round, I will pay BBs for however many I need. :music:

    I got 4 from sunflowers, so that's a wash. Still need 19 pfft. Cant be done. But its not important as only really missing out on the wonder stables.

    Wow! I lucked out on the wheel today. I was going for supergrow, and I did get a little, but I also got two 200% crops, one 100% crops, and three +1 crops!!!

    I was able to get enough drops yesterday with one field of hydrangea, one of reeds, and one of carnations - but I used up my supergrow! I wish there was a sale today!

    I have all the Potsicles that I need for tomorrow, so I'm putting down reeds to harvest in the morning.

    12ss12 - what is your secret for getting 193 drops from chrysanthemum?

    I've messed up on this round - forgot I needed a long term crop to get drops and planted the event crop in CFs! Will still need a partial harvest of event crops and no way to get enough drops within 24 hours. Oh well, let's just see how far I get! :D

    While I was dealing with this event, I didn't even realize that the Summer days event had started. I was confused which drops to send to my neighbors. What is our purpose in so many activities at once, BP?
    I'm asking but I know it won't be answered :) What I'm doing now is "play it music yourself, dance by yourself"

    I too got confused. I was only thinking about summer days event and I forgot that this event is continuing today as 3rd day event. I put chives in the main field and have 24 mins to harvest them. I didn't prepare both fields for the drops. So I am going to grow overnight crops for drops and try tomorrow morning for the event crops. Ha.... confusion.


    Can someone update the grapevine thread, please ?

    Well I had to finish off the last run of the event crop so didn't get a run on an overnight crop. Roses gave me 32 drops. 32 drops! So with the 39 slushies all you lovely people have sent me I have a total of 71 out of 505 and we are nearly half way in. I have work again today (its now 7.20am) so I just cannot do it.

    So am now pointing one of my fingers at this event and going to do something else for the rest of this one.
    Save your slushies for others please x

    I have no excuses but I don't think I am going to finish either. Was a big ask for 500+ drops when we also need to grow the event crop on the field. :wuerg:

    Edit: Not going to finish this one. I am 29 short for the penultimate step and a total of 104 to finish completely. :(
    Think I will cut my losses and not bother going on. I got the first CR so I'm happy, well, sort of.:music:

    When it was 6 h left of the event I had 285 drops out of 905 :( , would have been impossible if it wasn't for instant crops. Few rounds of instant irises on Main för Slush, and while I had everything set a few on Green medow for Straws, I got enough of both using about 400 SG (+ got about 70 wooden mallets from the "Dropper Woodhammer" refinement) . But why do I have to use precious SG to finish an event? I've been here over 10 years and BP never stops to amaze me. Probably why I'm still here :inlove:

    Nope, couldn't get enough of those slushies!

    I keep mixing up Game of Cones and Summer Days. One ends/new one starts at 5 a.m. my time (PST) and the other ends at 1 p.m.
    I was thinking I had longer to get the slushy drops and put down a crop that was not ready until after that day had ended . ..

    Oh my! Can they make it any more confusing? :cry: o_O >:(

    The following drops are also obtained by breeding animals.

    Ice Cone
    You will get these drops when harvesting your crops and trees on the Main field only!
    You will also receive 1 x Ice Cone with each breeding process completed.

    over 160 wheel spins and finally scored a harvest bonus of 24 hrs/100%. 2nd Cloud row is up and running. Last crop is in for the last 70 I need. I can now head off to work without having to even look at it thankfully. I realised I don't have to get everything on the drop ones so long as I finished the entirety of the crop only ones.

    On a side note, is anyone else experiencing their Ice Cream Cups showing no growth? Even at harvest mine look the same as when sowing.

    I'm completely done. 1st and 2nd CR up and running.

    It was such a boring activity that I didn't even realize it. Maybe it looked the same to me.
    The only nice thing about the event is that it gave out a lot of 2x2 items.

    Crate O' Plenty given by CR, I think it should be renamed as "The stinginess boxes".

    My ice cream cones were invisible! I did get the cloud row, but fell asleep and didn't harvest the last few in time. My weekend was very nonproductive on the farm - I seemed to just miss everything! I'm taking a break from events. I'm tired of having very little in stock, then scrambling to get enough of whatever. I don't want to be working this hard at this game1 So just regular farming and gifting neighbors for now. Oh, and completing some FS quests!
