Weeds are wild plants which are spawned randomly and may spread if not cleared. Weeds have a 50% chance to drop 1 Fiber when cut with a Scythe, Axe, Pickaxe, Hoe, or Sword, or blown up by a bomb. If a weed does not drop fiber, there is a 5% chance it will drop Mixed Seeds.
There's also a 0.001% chance to find a Living Hat when cutting weeds.
Spawning and spread
Weeds don't spawn above-ground in Winter, but in any other season will appear randomly on the farm and in the mines. This is most common when the season changes, but may occur later in the season. They also spawn in specific areas of Pelican Town and Cindersap Forest at the start of the game, and each Spring 1st. Weeds don't spawn on tiles that are already occupied by buildings, equipment, fences, or closed gates.
If weeds aren't cleared, they may multiply and spread. Weeds may spread to a tile occupied by a floor or path, which will destroy the path tile. If this happens, a pop-up message reading "The spreading weeds have caused damage to your farm." will be displayed onscreen the moment the player wakes up for the day. The player might receive this message every day if the spread is not discontinued by clearing the weeds, as it pops up if any path/floor is destroyed.
Any weeds above ground disappear in Winter.
There's an unimplemented quest in the game code to destroy all weeds in Pelican Town.
