How to Farm in My Time at Sandrock
When you speak to him, he’ll give you a mini tutorial on desert planting - which is basically farming!
Zeke will explain that to farm, you’ll need a Basic Planting Kit which he has already sent you a crafting recipe for. You should have made one before speaking to him.
You’ll first need to set down a straw grid because the sandy desert is too dry for farming! You’ll need one straw grid for each singular plant so if you want to get a big farm going, you’ll want to get a lot of straw!
Zeke will give you +3 Straw and +3 Sandrice seeds to start you off! Your next task in this main quest will be to harvest 3 Sandrice plants!
How to Harvest Sandrice
First off, return to your workshop and equip your Basic Planting Kit. You can equip it by putting it on your hotbar. Then, you’ll be able to activate a planting mode.
In planting mode, select the straw and use it to make a straw grid on the floor. Then, select the seeds and place them on the straw grid. You’ll want to do this for all 3 sandrice seed bags.
Next up is watering the plants! To do this, you’ll need a water barrel for each plant. You can either purchase water barrels or extract 3 water barrels from your water tank. If you’re wanting to do lots of planting in the future, you’ll need to get your water affairs in order! Head over to our guide on how to get more water for more information!
It’ll take a few days for the plants to mature so make sure to keep an eye on them and harvest them when they’re done. Once you’ve got them, speak to Zeke and you’ll earn Flashy Desert Defender Goggles, +500 Experience, +80 Gols and +15 Reputation.
