Not sure if it’s a bug or not or how to go about this, but it seems my farmers can sometimes be a bit… Odd…
When I start a new game, I immediately create 2 farmers and put them to work. They do well right up to the point where they have to harvest.
The farmers will start harvesting 2 different pumpkins. However, when farmer 1 has finished harvesting a single pumpkin, farmer 2 will stop harvesting his pumpkin in order to replant the empty patch left by farmer 1.
It seems like the farming goes a lot slower when the second farmer keeps stopping his work to replant a patch. He never seems to finish harvesting a single thing because he’s constantly refilling patches. My workaround to this issue is to assign a 3rd farmer to pick up the slack.
Tl;dr: Farmer never finishes harvesting something because he keeps planting seedlings instead.
Thanks for your help.
