Farming

From Stardew Valley Wiki

Farming is the process of planting, growing and harvesting crops at your farm. It's one of the main income sources for the game, and provides ingredients for cooking.

When harvesting, you can stand in the center of a 3x3 square of harvestable crops and hold the right mouse button, then move the mouse over the crops to harvest more quickly.

To plant crops players must first till a patch of soil using a hoe. If they intend to use fertilizer that should be applied before planting the seed. The crop must be watered each day to grow, unless it is raining (when they'll require no watering).

If the player fails to water crops for a day, the crop will not die, but will not grow that day (effectively being delayed a day).
