My Time at Portia: How to Make a Planter Box

How to Make a Planter Box in My Time at Portia

My Time at Portia is an incredibly charming game that offers a lot for you to do. You’ll have to divvy up your time between growing crops, restoring an old workshop, exploring an enchanting township, raising animals, and more. Despite many games making light work of farming mechanics and making it a dull experience overall, My Time at Portia will have you eagerly preparing to embrace your green thumb. Before you can call yourself a true farmer, however, you’ll have to start with the very basics. One of the very first things you’ll need to do is make a planter box to put your seeds in.

First and foremost, you have to understand that farming is not available immediately once you start the game. The good news is that you won’t have to wait long to get your chance to start farming. Progress through the game until you get the money to buy your first license into the Abandoned Ruins #1.  Once you’re inside the ruins, keep checking the relics for a disk. Once you find the disk, a quest will be activated asking you to go to the church. Once you arrive at the church, the quest will register as completed and the priest will suggest that you go talk to Emily. If you want to start farming, you’ll take the advice. Go find Emily, who is located on the farm just across the field from your workshop, and speak to her. She will give you the recipe for the Planter Box.

Once you have the recipe you’ll need to make sure you have all the necessary crafting materials. You’ll need three wooden boards, three pieces of clod and two pieces of animal feces – hey, nobody said making a Planter Box was a glamorous job! Once all that is checked off your list, go to the Worktable under the Furniture tab and simply select to choose to craft a Planter Box.

That’s all you’ll need to know in order to make a Planter Box in My Time at Portia. For more useful guides on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
