Weeds spawn on the ground at random during Spring, Summer, or Fall on The Farm and in The Mines, especially but not exclusively at a change of season. Weeds randomly spawn in specific areas of Pelican Town and Cindersap Forest for the first several days of the game, but not thereafter. If weeds are not cleared, however, they may multiply and spread.
Weeds do not spawn on tiles that buildings, equipment, fences, or closed gates already occupy. However, unlike grass, they may spread to a tile that has been paved with pathing. When they do, they destroy the pathing, which must be replaced after the weed is removed (if you want to keep the path).
All weeds above-ground in Stardew Valley disappear in Winter.
A Weeds item can be obtained by breaking a seed dropped by a Mushroom Tree with a tool. The weed item can then be placed on the ground and harvested to obtain fiber, or sold through the Shipping Box for 50g. This weed item is a bug, which the player should not be able to obtain, like an Artifact Spot. Gifting this item is possible, but that is not recommended, since all villagers hate it.
There is an unimplemented quest in the game code to destroy all weeds in Pelican Town.
