I... was unaware of this, actually. Dramatic revision incoming! Well, let's look at it... First off, you don't get the fertilizer, which is kinda the whole point of the strat, so you've effectively lost the goal you were aiming at, as you have said, but in addition to that, there's the price in the most expensive First Spring crop you can purchase suddenly being of null value, which could've been used to purchase something else instead. Early mistakes can snowball. Of course, it's a drop in the bucket if you consider fishing to be a core part of your strategy, since it's basically one or two fish and you're back even. My guide is trying to not be dependent upon fishing, as it is designed to be more newbie-friendly. Any particular reason why Kale instead of Potatoes? Just stamina efficiency? Minor nitpick: Gold Sturgeon only nets you Good response, Gold Cauliflower nets you Best. However, you get 9x Cauliflower Seeds for free when you turn in 5x items to the Museum, which should be fairly trivial to accomplish in time to plant them. If one turns up gold-star, save it for the luau.
