I know the sale of new garden plots is disabled temporarily. But I already owned 2 and got a third plot yesterday with the chef 500 collection. After finishing the Chef collection last night at reset I made 1 seed pouch for each of the 5 new seeds that come with chef 500 and planted them in my garden. I noticed after I gathered them, the soil changes from the name of the plant to open soil. In the past Open Soil meant that there is no longer anything planted in that spot.
Please tell me that this is a a bug and we are not going to only get 1 gather per seed pouch and then have to craft more seeds, plant, harvest and start the cycle over every day. If that is how it is meant to work that is a ridiculous amount of work to have to do each and every day and quite expensive as well.
I'm going to leave the 5 open soil spots alone until reset tonight and go back and see if there is anything there as a test but I am not hopeful.
