Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life Alarm Clock

Waking up early is an important part of being a farmer. You’ve got to get going when the sun rises to make sure that you have time to get everything done. Especially when a game day goes so fast and your in-game routine can be incredibly tight. Luckily for us, there is an item in the game that can help us in the early hours of the day. Here is how to get the alarm clock in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life.

Where is the Alarm Clock in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life

There are two benefits to having the alarm clock that make it worth the time that it takes to obtain it.

  • Setting what time you wake up in the morning.
  • Having naps during the day to restore stamina.

You will not be able to obtain the alarm clock until you have begun your second year – after getting married and having a child. Life comes at you fast in Forgotten Valley. When the second year begins, there will be a new family that has moved to town and your attention should be on the husband, Garrett. Garrett moved to town with his wife, San, and their rambunctious daughter, Kate.

As soon as Garrett moves in, he will post a request to the town’s bulletin board for Pickled Veggies, In exchange, he is offering his alarm clock. Feel free to accept it as soon as you see it as it has no time limit. Which is great as it may be your first time growing hybrid crops.

Before you think about cooking Garrett the meal of his dreams, make sure that you have spoken to Vinnie in Takakura’s house and know how to create hybrid crops. Pickled Veggies require two different turnip-based hybrid crops. There is a total of four and so it depends on what works for you regarding what season you are in.

Here are the crops that you can choose from. Remember you will need to choose two.

  • Caroturn
  • Sweeturn
  • Turnmato
  • Waturnip

Garrett will reward you with the alarm clock. He will also saddle you with the knowledge that he is a very sad, broken man. I just want to give him a hug. The fact that it was dark and raining when he was talking to me didn’t help at all. Poor sod.

That’s it though! Now you have an alarm clock to wake up and nap whenever you like. You also have had your first crash course into growing hybrid crops more than likely due to the fact that this quest becomes available at the same time hybrid crops do. Garrett isn’t the only parent in Forgotten Valley though. You are too, and it is up to you to decide what career path you want for yours.
