    Tomacco just showed up in m task book. That's going to annoy me for weeks haha :lol:

    Add me to the list. I started growing corn on New Year's Day and haven't gotten around to posting it. I had the same idea about 2-3 days before you posted this thread - ie - start growing corn on Jan 1.

    This is my second time growing corn and like Cookie, the first time I did, the 2nd day - I received a grow Perfection task. That drove me absolutely bonkers the entire time - I was finally glad when it finished, just so I could clear the stupid 45s task. AUGH!!! This was before the glitch. So far nothing has popped up yet *fingers crossed*

    Calling my Corn 'Black Eyed Peas' Corn.

    For anyone that doesn't know - eating black eyed peas on new years day is considered good luck.


    Edited to add name of corn.

    What is New Years corn... Did I miss this?

    I did my Xmas corn, which was my second time growing corn, but I was not informed of this group thing!

    It's just something I thought of recently. I think if you plant now, you can still consider your corn as New Years corn. Maybe something within seven days of NYs? Anyhoo, added you.

    I'm currently growing corn... But I'm not sure if I started to early. It says I have 45 days to go.
    So am I out or can I still be part of the "popcorn" crowd? :mrgreen:
    If I can...then I'm growing popcorn hahaha

    You're in as part of the Pre-Season bunch~! And you also get a nifty tagline. :)

    Wow, I... never actually knew that black eyed peas is an actual edible food instead of a band. You learn something new everyday. Now I'm going to wiki it and see what it's like.

    I currently have corn it matured 2 days after they wiped the slate, I nearly used donuts to speed it up a day or 2 before the wipe so It was lucky I didn't, so far it has netted me over 12 million and tons of exp. it is worth it!! And if they reset them on the next update I will grow it again. It's nice not to have to set it running everyday and if its still glitchable then thats a bonus :)


    P.S...... Don't forget it's not 45k if you have multipliers, it could be a lot more :wink:

    Alright clue me in?
    I started growing corn a few weeks ago cause I got sick of my other crops expiring.

    When it finishes...(waits for it)

    i still don't get it. 90 batches of moonshine yields more then a batch of corn according to the list of crops.

    are you folks planting the corn, waiting out the 90 day growth period, and THEN each neighbor's tap on the COMPLETED crop yields a handshake worth $45k?

    or is it the taps while its growing that matter?

    is this the same for the squid port tiles? when they complete, should i NOT PUT IT INTO INVENTORY? instead just leave the tile alone so neighbors can tap it? i've been paying to start generating new ones that i cant even afford to place.

    please advise! :D
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    The first one. The tappable icon won't even appear until a crop is finished growing, any more than an icon will appear at Squidport until a section is done building.

    Yes, that's right. I think.

    So envious. I've never been able to gather more than three handshakes on my SP tile, Ch 6, or Open Air. After three it's not available to tap. I guess that's why it's still referred to as a "glitch".

    ok wait.

    in this pictur there's several handshakes over the corn. but won't touching it once clear them all? do you just not touch it ever again?

    or can you touch the handshake but just don't touch the corn icon?

    i may start my first batch of corn tonite! enough of this 3 silvertongues a day work!! thanks all!

    Nope. Handshakes are cleared one at a time.
