Added that it can also be used to remove planted crops (which also removes any fertilizer beneath them). Note the user here said it would remove fertilizer: https[colon-slash-slash]steamcommunity.com/app/413150/discussions/0/333656722981237165/#c333656722981728012 but I tested it myself in 1.2.33 by removing both Blueberry and Grapevines and the fertilizer remained. --Rkagerer (talk) 01:29, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Be aware that certain rocks take different numbers of hits when found in the Quarry vs. the Mines vs. the Skull Cavern. margotbean (talk) 17:26, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
If you wonder the time of swings need to break a rock, I did check the game code (in 1.3, but not in 1.4) and you can check history of this page for details. But it may not be reliable for 1.4.
