every now that then when I was moving items. ( mainly wild flowers, silkweed and berry bushes) if the Hearthling gets scared and drops the item and you don’t catch the item to forcibly place it again it gets put back to your in stashes. if this happens you can not place them back to be used and harvested
a simple solution would be to make them placeable even if they end up in your stash. its showing 3 berry bushes, 2 brightbell and 3 wild silkweed in my ‘inventory’ but I cant place them using ‘p’
Do you remember what exactly the people were doing when they decided to restock the plants? I tried making them hungry and sleepy, but they finished placing the plant instead of restocking it…
it seems to happen when I have them flee from a monster or use the town alert making them run to the center of the map fomr the outer edges. were the last of the plants were ( the ‘bottom’ of the map on both sides)
I haven’t seen a different Hearthling pick it back up personally but there have been times were I have had town alert on for 50-60 seconds on 2or 3 times speed when I have been attacked on 2 or 3 directions so maybe that was something that caused it?
