Gardner cows are available in the market for coins and come out fully grown.


I tried to store my gardener cow and it said report bug, refresh and now it's gone. It is nowhere on my homestead I've checked all the storage, and the inventory and It's GONE. I had tended it 2/8 times and will be unable to move on unless I get it back. Anyone know how to get it back? I am unable to email ZYNGA :-(


My raised beds have consumed my super roses, I planted them, but cannot harvest them. Therefore I will never be able to move on unless you can fix this issue. Thank you


Anyone else have a problem getting the tree from the prank box? The first box I received the donkey. The last 4 has been the alien sheep.


There is a glitch affecting many players causing them to disappear. Zynga is aware on working on a fix.

How do you harvest crops in your raised beds? I've planted 3 different times and they just aren't there any more when I go back to them. Yet, they aren't in my inventory any more!!
Thank you for any help, Lisa
