    Leah is really hard to keep track of because she doesn't even live in the town and spends a lot of her time in transit as a result. Two places during the day she can be reliably found are on the east side of the lake between her place and the wizard's, or the beach. Occasionally she'll go shopping at Pierre's, and most nights she'll either hang out at the bar or go home and lock up. Her wiki page has more in-depth info.

      like other people said: put bait in them. if you're getting a lot of trash, I find that the little stream on the beach has yielded the most crabs

      also I found a bug that lets you clone crab pots. so I got like 30 going at once (and it's still not great income and takes a lot of time!)

        Didn't realize that the level 5 miner reward screen was a clickable choice -- I thought I got both. So I clicked randomly to proceed. In doing so, I ended up with the apparently useless option. =|

          Thought my bait had disappeared, turns out you can have many, many bait on a rod. Clicked it and got my 89 bait back...

            So, I uh... found out the hard way that attacking the wheels on a passing train gets you hurt pretty bad.

            Now it only does like 1/16th to 1/8th of your health per hit but I was having too much fun being totally unwise, and I can confidently tell you, don't beat up the train. Train always wins.

                  I wanted my stables to look like it was connected to part of the barn, but since it's only 2 tiles wide, it's waaayyy behind it and looks stupid.

                  Fun fact: The stables is the one building you can't redo. :(

                    I thought I saw in the patch notes that the stable was now re-buildable?

                      Loool I don't know if this counts as a misfortune, but I've been using the steel watering can for weeks and just realized now that it has a second charge level.......i did think the upgrade felt pretty lame...welp now i know why.

                      I actually like this, since it forces you to plan ahead and strategize.

                            You can buy Starfruit Seeds later, but it'll be awhile. Thankfully they don't appear to actually be used in anything?

                            @rapinii : I like strategizing and planning ahead, but yet... I wish there was actual room to do so. I think 28-day seasons are kinda short, especially when some crops take 12-15 days to start producing. If a season were 90 days, that gives you plenty of room to take advantage of said crops and get yourself some nice money, but with the 28-day seasons, I think 15 days for a crop is just way too much. You can only get 1 harvest of such in any one season. And outside of the 4-5 day crops, the last week of the season (which is 25% of the season) is useless, because you can't plant (they won't get done in time).

                            On a 90-day season, the last 9 days is only 10% of the season, leaving the other 90% good for planting.

                            This only further bolsters my point about 28 day seasons and 15 day crops.

                            It probably takes a Year+ to where you can build your house up and get a good enough income to actually start hoarding crops and not selling everything you can get your hot little mitts on since everything is so wild expensive during your first year. I'm in mid-winter, and I'm still in the "need every penny I can get" mode.

                              I tried putting my crab pots in the stream near Elliot's cabin without bait. Whoops. Recollected them, learned to craft bait, but now I can't seem to use them anywhere!

                                - Keep on going, Killing stuff around and forgot to look HP.
                                - Last moment I saw my HP almost 0. Bat was fly not far. Try to pause game and about to eat some mushroom when unpause, but too late and then I died.
                                - Lose almost every items I got include my weapon. Restart game and start that day again.. :urgh:

                                Also didn't know that grass will wipe in winter. Learn it a hard way on 1st day Winter...

                                  I had a hard time with the controls at first, and used to hit things randomly with the pickax. Planted crops included. I also struggled with the gifting mechanic. I was trying really hard to woo Elliot, so when he posted a want ad for a carp, I went and got him one. Unfortunately, the time ran out and I didn't notice. He hates carp, by the way. MAKE UP YOUR MIND, DAMMIT! I lost my one heart with him and courted Sam instead with the trash cola cans I fished out of pond while trying to catch Elliot's stupid carp.

                                        I can relate. I didn't know about the game though until it popped up on release day. Have been playing since then. And it's exam time... and I'm a teacher lol What is self control?

                                          My misfortunes usually come from bugs and having to start the day over. Like when I finished the craft room and got stuck inside a chair.
