***** QUESTS ******

It's hard to believe that we are already poised to start the 6th week of the new Opal's Kingdom Farm, and that means in a few hours we should see the launch of Opal's Kingdom Chapter 6 Quest. We should have a week to complete the 6 stages in this chapter quest. You can get a mighty fine jump on the crafting requirements by pre-making 3 Topaz Gemstones and 3 Diamond Clam Pendants in Crafter's Shell. PILLAR CORAL, STARFISH FRUIT AND VENUS CLAM BUSHELS WILL TAKE 16 HOURS TO GROW. So try to hold on to those bushels, and if you can, plant some for your neighbors. Now...let's see what we get for all of the planting, crafting and begging. We start out with a Jelly Blobs Tree, many people may not know this, But, JELLY BLOBS is what happens when you make JELLY BEANS and you forget that outer shell...TRUE STORY. Next we have a Dolphin Mermaid..Our third reward is a Fish Pattern Cow. Then we have a Star Hat Penguin, and I don't think that's a hat. I think a starfish just landed on it's head...poor penguin. There's an Aqua Crystal Dragon and finally an Aqua Breed Pegasus

This week's ALL FARMS Quest is named the A DAY FOR HEALTH QUEST. I think the very first task might have to be to get up, turn off the Farmville, and go outside and play, but, it probably will not be. It will be 9 stages of fun harvesting, crafting and begging in order to win some cool Farmville Stuff. It looks like we have a new crop for this quest. The 12 hour Healthy Apple Crop will be needed in stages 2 and 4. Be sure to check out our HOT CROP CHEAT SHEET so you will know what Bushels you will need. Not just for yourself, but this list tells you what you will need in your market stalls for your neighbors as well. A special note. The RED WHEAT Bushels will take 69 hours to grow. Besides the usual consumables we can expect to have the chance to earn a Nurse Duck, and she has a big old hypodermic needle. Next there's a Scrubs Dog who's dressed like a doctor. We have a new deco. It's called the Super Speciality Hospital, It looks kinda creepy. I think this may be THE NERVOUS HOSPITAL, Or possibly the ASYLUM for the FARMVILLE INSANE. Finally we have a Doctor Pegacorn.

***** COUNTDOWN *****

Starting this Tuesday. We will see the beginning of the Renaissance Fair Countdown. 16 days of rewards and a 17th bonus prize. We start out with a Royal Shield Tree, then we have a Precious Gem Turtle and we go back to the trees with a Gemstoned Tree. We have a Musician Fox and a Knight Statue gnome, there's an odd Medieval Time Arch. There is a Highborn Goat, a Chalice Fountain witch is just a big old cup. We have a Royal Lion, a strange Gem Chess Board deco that's going right into storage, or worse. The Renaissance Gazebo is pretty cool, and then we have a Hatted Chicken. We have a Richly Gnomette, an Associate Bear. There's a Queenly Peacock and a Renaissance Pony. Your bonus reward for getting all 16 stamps is a Venetian Stallion. For more information Click Here

***** LEADERBOARDS *****

The LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE this week will see us harvesting 6000 Mixed Blackberries. The new Mixed Blackberry crop will take 23 hours to fully grow and should be in the market at the normal update time, 13 hours before the Leaderboard begins. Our LOCKED CROP CHALLENGE will have us harvesting 300 Star Watermelon. The Star Watermelon Crop will take 8 hours to fully grow and can only be planted on Opal's Kingdom. Finally, Our CRAFTY CHALLENGE will require us to make 12 Hyacinth Rock recipes. Hyacinth Rock is a 2 hour Crafter’s Shell recipe. For more information Click Here

This week's POLL of the Week wanted to know what you thought of the lack of innovation with the Leaderboards over the past few years. Surprisingly the majority of players actually like it just the way it is, no changes required.

Recently The Dirt farmer has been doing HOLIDAY CONTESTS. Starting with Woman's Day. Continuing to St Patty's Day, and now we are going to announce the winners of our April Fool's Day Contest. But this is no trick.
Lori Clark of Cedar Grove, New Jersey. Is our first winner. She asked for a Double Crafting Statue. Our second winner is Terry Laboe who has won an Opal's Kingdom Double Points Statue. Tomorrow we will launch our next contest. An Easter Day Contest

With all the issues we have had with Zynga Customer Support over the years. You would assume that they would take very speacial care of the current system. It has been operating well for most players of Zynga Games for sometime. Until this past week when an UPGRADE to their OUTLOOK system caused massive email errors between players in need of help and the gaming giant. We do have indication that all is well at the moment

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!
