About this mod

Allows you to harvest all crops (including seasonal crops) and forage using the scythe. They can also still be plucked.

Permissions and credits
Allows you to harvest all crops and forage using the scythe. They can also still be plucked, without having to press a toggle button (though this can be disabled in config.json). Unlike other 'harvest with scythe' mods, this patch does not affect your savegame. So it is possible to revert to the old behavior by simply removing this mod.

Note: run Stardew Valley once with this mod enabled to generate the config.json file.
  • HarvestWithSword: Whether a sword can be used instead of a scythe. Default = false.
  • HarvestMode: Valid values are: HAND (only pluckable), SCYTHE (only scythable), BOTH (both pluckable and scythable), GOLD (both pluckable and scythable, but only with the golden scythe).
    • PluckableCrops: How crops that normally can only be harvested by hand can be harvested. Default = BOTH.
    • ScythableCrops: How crops that normally can only be harvested with a scythe can be harvested. Default = SCYTHE.
    • Flowers: How flowers can be harvested. Default = BOTH.
    • Forage: How forage can be harvested (Setting this to HAND disables all patches related to handling forage). Default = BOTH.
    • SpringOnion: How spring onions can be harvested. Default = BOTH.
