We can expect to see TWO Neighbor Gifting Events with this new farm. The first started this past Friday. We’ll be sending the Jelly Wave Horse to our neighbors for 5 Farmcash. In return, Farmville will be rewarding us with the Sea Glow Pegasus. The second Event should start on April 6th. We will be sending the Shiny Scales Deer to our neighbors, for a cost of 5 Farmcash, and in return, we will get a Fish Stripes Pegacorn

***** QUESTS *****

Okay, Folks, Let's talk about THE PROOF. That's the name of the Opal's Kingdom Chapter 3 Quest. Get a jump on that crafting by making 3 Topaz Gemstones and 3 Diamond Clam Pendants in Crafter's Shell. GEMSTONE PINEAPPLE BUSHELS WILL TAKE 18 HOURS TO GROW, so get a stockpile of those, or at least the 6 bushels you will need for questing. And for all this Harvesting, Begging and crafting, what do we get? Well...for starters we can earn a Pearl Coral Tree. There's a Ray Rider Gnome. I wonder if we can call him Steve Erwin...BAD. Then there is a wickedly creepy Octo Tail Fox, we have a Coral Star Deer. Then there's an Aqua Saint Panda and finally a Pearly Pet Unicorn

Now...dear listeners, it's time for "A POEM FOR THE SOUL" No...we are not getting lovey dovey on you, But, Farmville might be. Because that is the name of our next ALL FARMS Quest that starts on Thursday. We have a new crop with this quest, and I'm almost afraid to look. Let's see...It's called the INK PEAR. It's a 12 hour crop that looks like an ink-well in the shape of a PEAR, and it looks suspiciously like a drooping testickle...oh, boy. You will need to harvest this crop for stages 2 and 4. Be sure to check out our HOT CROP CHEAT SHEET and keep it handy for this quest. FROZEN GRAPES, GILDED FLOWER, LILY AND RED TULIP BUSHELS WILL TAKE 23 HOURS TO GROW...DAFFODIL AND PINK ROSE CROPS WILL TAKE 46 HOURS TO GROW. Besides the usual consumables we have a few unique prizes we can earn. There is a Poetree, a Modern Poet Dog, a Poetic Gnome and finally a Poetic Pegasus

***** COUNTDOWN *****

Tomorrow is the start of a brand SPANKIN' new Countdown Feature. The EASTER COUNTDOWN will be here in plenty of time for the Easter Holiday and it will run until April 4th. But this year Easter Sunday falls on April 16th, so I guess we can just call this an early Easter present. This countdown will bring us 16 days of rewards as well as a 17th BONUS reward. We start out with a Paschal Egg Tree and a Paschal Basket Tree. Have you noticed how they have been clustering trees at the starts of features recently? We have an Easter Egg Gnomette that looks like STASSI, there's a Paschal Egg Chicken. In case you are unaware why everything is named PASCHAL in this countdown...well...PASCHAL basically means "pertaining to Easter" or to Passover, which is actually PASSOVER in Latin and Ancient there ya go...and here we go...back to the countdown. Next we see a Paschal Egg Painter Bunny. It's about time that Easter Bunny got off it's butt and painted some eggs...LAZY WABBITS...we have a Paschal Ribbon Tree...then there's a Paschal Egg Heap deco and a Easter Gown Gnomette...Next we have a Paschal Egg House...a Candy Egg Factory...a Paschal Bunny Chicken...WOW...Two chickens in this wait THREE...then we have a Paschal Magician Chicken...then we have an Easter Shell Easter Skin Cow...there's a Paschal Dye Pegacorn and finally an Easter Fleece Sheep...and when you collect all 16 stamps you will be awarded an Easter Fur Pegasus

***** LEADERBOARD *****

Wednesday will see the start of a new set of LEADERBOARDS...a great way to earn InstaGrows, UnWithers and Super Fertilizers. This week's LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE will see us harvesting 6000 Sunfall Flowers. The Sunfall Flowers is a 12 Hour Crop which will be in the market at the normal update time, 13 hours before the Leaderboard begins. Our LOCKED CROP CHALLENGE will require us to harvest 300 Shell Guavas...Shell Guava is a Opal’s Kingdom crop that grows in 6 hours. For our CRAFTY CHALLENGE this week...We will need to make 12 Pearl Combs...Pearl Comb is a 4 hours Crafter’s Shell recipe. It requires 3 Starfish Fruit Bushels , 3 Shell Guava Bushels, and 3 Glowing Thistle Bushels per recipe. Are you MISSING your LEADERBOARD ICON? This happens because NEW Farmville features get prioritized and the number of icons that can be seen on the right side is only 8. You may simply click the Starter Pack icon to dismiss it and refresh Farmville, and/or travel to another farm for your Leaderboard icon to show up in the game

The Dirt Farmer knows how frustrating it can be to make an accidental cash purchase, in-game, while playing FarmVille. For many of us, it seems as though our computer and our game freezes at the most inopportune times, and we double click with our mouse, and purchase unwanted bushels, or spend Farm Cash to speed up a crafting that would be finished in just a few minutes. However, we also tend to get frustrated at all the pop-ups that we have to navigate through while playing the game. The Dirt Farmer would like to know, which is more important to us farmers, do we want to keep our Farm Cash, and have more pop-ups that might delay the game for a few seconds, or do we like way the game is currently set up?
It seems that an overwhelming 97% of those who voted want to see a pop up confirmation for each and every Farm Cash purchase, and it's not too late to vote.

This past week we celebrated International WOMEN'S DAY and to help all the ladies celebrate...we decided to run a quick contest...we asked you to post your FV Game ID and the exact prize you wanted...and we have our winners

Valerie Chin has won an UnWither Ring for her Sunflower Meadows Farm...Valerie...there isn't a specific ring for that farm but we will send you a Home Farm Ring that will work...we will check on that for you Valerie and if doesn't work we will let you pick another prize
Our second winner is Mahrukh Gotla and she chose the UnWither Ring for the English Countryside farm...We really hope these prizes helps these farmers with their everyday game play...Because that is what we are all about here at the Dirt Farmer
In fact we are going to be doing even more of these HOLIDAY CONTESTS here at the Dirt Farmer...When we do a contest from our website we will ask you to comment to the website post on farmvilledirtdotcom...We will ask for your FARMVILLE game ID not your FACEBOOK UID...We also highly recommend that you comment via will see the option to comment via BLOGGER or via FACEBOOK...Always comment via FACEBOOK...That didn't eliminate anyone from this contest but we still highly recommend it...Be on the look out for our ST PATTY'S DAY CONTEST which will be very similar to this WOMAN'S DAY CONTEST

Howdy Farmers! Have you noticed somethings have come up missing in Farmer's Square? Crafting images are invisible? We've reported this to the FarmVille Studio, and hopefully it will be fixed soon. It you still haven't started to expand Farmer's Square...If you have never really explored your FARMER'S SQUARE we highly recommend doing so...and we have a complete guide to Farmer's Square and we will drop that link right here right now

Last week we went over the new DREAM FISH FEATURE...and as we all know...It is very complicated...So this week Karen decided to ask everyone a very simple question in our Poll of the Week...The Dirt Farmer wants to know if the DREAM FISH is a DREAM or a NIGHTMARE...As we all know...It is very very difficult to get Farmville players to agree 100% on any one subject...but, this one came awfully close...An OVERWHELMING 96% say in one united voice that this is a BLOODY NIGHTMARE!!!

We have a new thingy for you on our website...farmvilledirtdotcom...It's great for FV but useful for everyday computing and internet shennanigans...It's a SPEED TEST...Your internet provider probably charges you based on the speed of your internet...YOU really need to check to be sure you are getting what you are paying for...Also...If your SPEED goes down at 2 am...that may mean your teenager is watching NETFLIX instead of sleeping...Be sure to BOOKMARK the Dirt Farmer's SPEED TEST Link and use it as often as needed...Bea will drop the link in the DeeBee but you can always search SPEEDTEST on our

It is a day when Women are recognized for their achievements past, present and future.

We all know that playing Farmville isn't getting any easier these days. Whether Farmville is throttling  access to your friends or the  Facebook newsfeed is hiding them from you it's hard to find help links on the newsfeed.  Add that to the fact that a lot of fellow players have quit and it becomes very challenging to  find help.  That's why you should join one or all of the Dirt Farmers SHARE Groups. Mam-Maw's Trading Post, Quest Help and More, The VOTE HELP Group and GOT SHEEP are link sharing groups where you can find neat items and even get help with common FV activities.  We also have several helpful groups such as The Dirt Farmer, Farmville News Network and others! Be sure to ASK to JOIN today and please tell your FV friends about these helpful resources.


In the meantime, we hope you will visit our website as often as possible.  Your support and your clicks on that website is what enables us to provide our services to all the players. Share those posts from our Facebook page so we can reach even more players, so we can help them manage their game and stay in the game. Without YOUR support there is no Dirt Farmer.  Thanks to each and every one of you!
