Buildings And ResidentsBelow are the list of residents and buildings, in correspondance with the map on the right.
Area 1- Your Farmland
Your farmland. This area includes your farmhouse, Takakura's house, poultry and animal barns, (AWL) a stable (DS) and a water hole. There is one giant pasture here, it can be used for crop growth (DS only) or buildings. Compared to the fields scattered around the valley in Harvest Moon DS, the growth rate of this soil is average.
Farmhouse: Where the player character lives. In A Wonderful Life, the house initially includes a bed, record player, kitchen, television, bookshelf and small table. In Harvest Moon DS, the house also includes a telephone, but does not initially include a kitchen. The house is automatically expanded upon in A Wonderful Life, but in Harvest Moon DS you must call Gotz to renovate your house.
Farm Shack: Takakura, an old friend of your deceased father lives here. He is the one who introduces you to the farm life. In A Wonderful Life, he narrates each chapter, ships your produce and gives you advice on farming. If you befriend him, he will introduce you to Tartan, a plant that produces hybrid seeds. In Harvest Moon DS, he will inform you when an animal has died, and will also give you your horse.
Area 2- Vesta's Farms
This area includes Vesta's Farm, Galen and Nina's house, and the exit to Mineral Town. It is impossible to exit Forget me Not Valley. In Harvest Moon DS, there is one large field in this area that wraps around Nina and Galen's house. The field is often covered in sticks and stones, and edible plants rarely grow there. In comparison to other fields scattered around the valley, the growth rate of this soil is slow.
Vesta's Farm: A trio of farmers. Vesta, her brother Marlin, and a young girl named Celia all live in one of the two buildings. The other building is used by Vesta as the town's only permanent shop. Vesta sells nearly all types of seeds here, and is your only source for tree seeds in Harvest Moon DS. There are several large fields by the shop, but they are always used by the three farmers, so you cannot plant there. Celia is an eligable bachelorette in both games, as is Marlin in both games' female counterparts. Vesta will give you a Weird Hoe if you befriend her. Befriending any of the three can lead your child to be interested in farming. (AWL only)
Hilltop House: Galen and his wife Nina are an elderly couple wishing to live out the rest of their lives in Forget-Me-Not Valley. Galen enjoys fishing, and will give you a Fishing Rod. In Harvest Moon: DS, Nina will give you a hand-knitted sock.
Area 3- Waterfall
This portion of the valley is where Professor Carter and his assistant Flora live. There is a mine here that you can dig in to find various objects. In Harvest Moon DS, there are two fields right beside the main pathway. The soil here is above average. In addition, there is a hidden field behind the waterfall that can be unlocked with the Legendary Sword. This soil will speed up the growth rate of plants 2x normal speed.
Excavation Tent: Professor Carter and his assistant Flora live in this tent. They dig in the mines during most of the day. Flora is eligable only in Harvest Moon: DS, and Carter is also eligable in DS:CUTE. In AWL, Carter can convince your child to pursue archaeology.
