After unlocking the Island Sanctuary, the Felicitous Furball will walk you through a couple of basic tutorial quests to get you acquainted with the systems. After constructing your hideaway, you’ll then be directed towards the produce manager.

Head to the northern ridge just behind your cozy cabin, speak with the NPC, and you’ll have a nice cropland ready for growing crops.

From the Island Sanctuary menu box, click on the mode button and select Sow. Next to the mode button, click on the box and select whichever seeds you want to plant.
