IntPiPoMo 2012 : The Big Dig

Apologies for absence yesterday, but I have a job (of sorts) to occupy myself with and I actually had to do some work, plus I'm doing the NaNoWriMo thing... and anyway, enough excuses! Pictures! We want pictures!

The first job of the day.

Welcome to my Farm, the first place I go when I log. If I could use my house as an Inn that would be great, thinking about it, but there is somewhere that serves the same purpose just around the corner, and this is where most of my still-85's have their homes for now. There is not as yet any grand plan to my planting: vegetables are shaping up to be a lucrative market on the AH, but for now I stick to Songbell Seeds for the Motes of Harmony.

You missed a plot!

The business of planting is now officially a Faff (TM) and I can see this might in itself be a way to restrict people from becoming Farming Farmers: I tend to round up all the critters at once to kill (I've had six to do in one hit thus far) but the introduction of the sprinkler system and the bug zappers helps. I can see weedkiller and pest traps being introduced in a later patch, if I think about it. All these redundancies built in, with a new currency to take care of the purchases. Very smart, Blizzard.

All done for another day...

Because of my time constraints I don't plant alt farms unless I know I'll have the opportunity to harvest: this means a fair few of my sub-90 plots have laid fallow for a while, a fact I intend to change when I've finished this post. I've been spending a lot of time at the AH this week, if truth be told, trying to work out where my markets are going to be over the winter months, and I already have a few ideas in mind...

Oh wow.. that's a lot of tilling and tending. I know a lot of people love the farming mini-game but I've got to admit, it kind of seems like a lot of work for little gain :-/ Perhaps it's just because I don't need to do it for raid food mats.
You're doing NaNoWriMo as well as IntPiPoMO and blogging? When do you sleep!?
