I am not even going to try to avoid spoilers. So be forewarned.
This walkthrough is for the iPad version of the game which has quite a few differences from the desktop version.
Stardew Valley is very flexible, so as you play the game your experiences will not be the same as mine. Once I am past the game basics, I will not be going step by step, but only recapping the action.
If you are looking just to get a particular question about the game answered. You can find just about every thing you need to know in the Wiki.
On day four of the game, I woke up in my lonely little cottage and turned on the TV, to watch Livin’ Off The Land. The program gives you quite a few tips for playing the game. This hint is about the spring onions, which I can forage past the river south of the farm.
With the spring onions in mind, I made my way across the farm to the south gathering windfall wood. I am still trying to accumulate 300 pieces of wood so that I can rebuild that broken bridge.
I was disappointed when I arrived at the area south of the river, that there were no onions. Like many things in the game the onions are randomized. Sometimes there are a lot of them, but this was the first time I found none. I finished picking up windfall wood in the area and headed back across the farm to explore the area to the north.
At the end of this path, I found what is called the Mountain area. The building is the carpenter shop and home of Robin, her husband, son, and daughter. More about them later.
Not being able to talk to the workman over the top of the rocks, I began to do some fishing in the Mountain Lake.
Catching enough fish to fill my backpack I decided, rather than get to a point where I had to throw something away, I would eat the Wild Horseradish I had foraged. To eat something, you click on its icon in the inventory and then click on your avatar, which brings up the question below. This pause comes in very handy. There will be many times when you accidentally trigger the eating mode, and need to back out.
Back on the farm, I worked in the dark to burn off my energy before going to bed. It seems like a real waste to go to bed with excess energy. While breaking rocks I found a Geode. I will have to remember to take it over to the blacksmith next time I am in town. When I go to bed I find that I have reached another milestone. This time in Foraging.
