    Hi,

    When they came out with the "Dirt Patch", they forgot to impliment it for filling plant bowls with dirt. Are these items still just a deco, or is there a way to make them work?

    Thanks, Katrena

    I don't believe these were ever meant for that purpose. I know fertile dirt can be collected and offers benefits for growing plants. Also, any logical dirt area can be targeted. But these items which are obtained from Lord Oaks are merely just deco. I do believe it would be great if they did implement a change to make them similar to water troughs in terms of giving dirt instead of water.

    Hi,

    This is quoted from the May 1, 2009 Five on Friday Archive:

    "I just purchased a dirt patch (the item), thinking that I could fill plant bowls with it. I was sadly (and sorely! *squeezes pocketbook*) mistaken. I swore I read it somewhere! *scratches head* Will we ever be able to use this dirt to fill plant bowls?

    This falls into the “oversight” category. We’ll come up with some cool uses for them in the future."

    Thanks, Katrena

    That unfortunately does not imply that they will be able to be used to fill in plant bowls. It just says they were planning on coming up with some cool uses for them. Sneaky wording indeed.

    ...

    Not to mention Sakkarah has since moved on from the team, so it is very likely that the item has been "lost in the shuffle".

    and if you look at the date of that message "This is quoted from the May 1, 2009 Five on Friday Archive:"

    Problem is there are a lot of items that fall into the "oversight category". I wouldn't hold your breath while waiting for any of them to be "fixed" and even if they are fixed you might not like the results. It would be cool tho if they produced or filled X number of bowls a day with fertile dirt.
