You had a certain number of "things" you could harvest, typically 3 from each item, for a given number of times. Then then turned into ornaments and you could be satisfied with that or purchase a next set with gems. This is nothing new in any way. In fact you can harvest six times this time, and previous times it was only 5, so we get an extra harvest.


I think I have pretty consistently been getting 6 harvests from these builder items in previous events, though I know there always seem to be some people who get less.

I don't like:
- that there are only 2 things we can make to feed the carousel,
- that once again they are using cacao, a scarce resource for many people,
- that there is way too much emphasis on Trading Post, the most boring of all orders,
- that there is way too much inconsistency in Gingerbread return for order size and difficulty. We get one or two for ridiculous orders, then 4 Gingerbread for 6 boards . Too many orders being deleted as nonsense.

Otoh, gotta love this

To clarify:
With these events, there has always been a limit on how many times a sharing decor/mill can be harvested, and the max harvest is 6 times (3 sharing items each harvest, meaning each decor/mill yields 18 sharing items total).

The first sharing item of the likes that was introduced was the Friendly Flower Pots with the Friend Ship event. Sharing was a new concept then, and it was not a forever item, meaning if you harvested it the last time, it died and disappeared. Many people decided to only harvested it 5 times, so that they could keep it as decor.

The next event (the Grand Egg Basket), and all events since, PB changed the sharing decor/mills to stay forever as decor once the final harvest was done.

How many do you now have out? They usually limit how many of these we can have at one time, typically five.

I am currently working only two fountains and they are still available under my crop tab.

I've always thought that was a particularly nasty thing for PB to do and it is clearly intended to get people to spend more gems. I've had several occasions where I got only 4 or 5 harvests but unless you keep count you may well not notice.

Are you at your max for coco fountains?

You’re only allowed to have 5 “live” coco fountains at the same time.

(unless you bought the special, where if you already had your 5, you could actually have 7 “live” fountains)

I agree, it is totally possible that someone may not get max harvests for whatever reason. I simply was clarifying what we are supposed to get. And I also agree that if one does not keep track, they may not notice the difference.

I just bought my second set of coco fountains and am taking screenshots and keeping track, for the specific reason of people mentioning not getting all harvests. I'll report back here if I do not get the max harvests. I suggest anyone concerned do the same. If you do not get the max harvests (6), then PB will gladly credit you what you are missing. But remember to take screenshots, which will also have a time stamp on them in your photos. This would be your evidence to PB, which is required. Without evidence, PB will not credit anything. Hope all goes well and everyone gets all harvests! Happy carousel building friends! :D
