    Sounds like a fun idea. I'm gonna have to pass though because my corn is on a constant loop. I also like to put Witch Marge to work speeding up the crop

    Okay then I'm in! But as you are the "instigator" I expect a reminder closer to the planting deadline!

    I'm holding you to this... :wink:

    I was 30 plus days left from harvesting when I purchased Brandine, and her quest line was held up from growing tomacco twice. Thanks to witch Marge and her tireless arms used over and over, my corn is ready in 3 days.

    I may go for another corn harvest after Brandine's quest line is completed.

    How does that work? (Witch Marge) I've used her to speed up my corn, but I can't tell what kind of difference it makes. Could you please share that info with me?

    Thank you! :)

    She knocks four hours off of growing corn each time you use her. If you look at the time left to grow at the beginning when you set the task, and then the time after, you'll see she has subtracted 4 hours of grow time (this example applies to corn - I'm not sure how much time she subtracts from other crops because I've only used her for corn so far).

    Nope, I don't follow MLB. The closest professional baseball team is in Kansas City or 5 hours away. I'm not a big baseball fan anyways. I go to a couple college games in my home town only because I went to school there and it's an excuse to go downtown for the night.

    All this talk about baseball and solstices is making me want summer to come even faster. It was 3 degrees F this morning :evil:

    Thank you very much, Suetopia! That's great news! Now, when Marge isn't on a mandatory task, I'll put her on my corn. :D

    It made perfect sense to me. That's why I didn't bother replying to the original question or elaborating on your response :)

    I was thinking about making some corn bread tomorrow. It isn't something i would normally do but heck you have to pass these winter days somehow. Plant corn. I bet we will get a Stonehenge for Springfield soon - the way things are heading. :mrgreen:


    :shock: Edited for accuracy.

    I've used her to grow Silvertongue as well. With 4 hours taken off, I could harvest a crop every 4 hours when I reset her. Right now I have her on corn as well. I'm curious to see how quickly I can do it with her. :)

    It's 3 degrees here right now in Pittsburgh. I may still have the down comforter on the bed come summer solstice as we've been having colder than normal weather the last 7 years. Like November to almost july. Lol.
    Wait no lol, it's horrrible. Then it's 100 degrees everyday till November.
