    I don't garden much, but i needed some garlic and had the stuff so i went and planted a bunch of beds worth. I noticed that i have the ability to use "optional fertilizer".

    I remember this being here for a really long time but since it's not my gig I haven't paid attention.

    Did we ever get fertilizer? If so, what is it and how does it help?

    Fertilizer never made it in the game. I'm sure it's a jira item. So just disregard it.

    They talked about fertilizer being used to grow like, trophy agricultural stuff (like giant pumpkins) but it looks like that system never got finished.
    Unclear on whether or not fertilizer was (ever) intended for things like increasing crop yield.

    Thanks for the insight. It's as i expected. Best intentions, cast to the side. If we can't use it, take it off of the UI. Sloppy.

    Yeah it would be nice if fertilizer was a recipe. Perhaps fish gave fish guts when prepared and cooking got some skills finally instead of just one skill. Perhaps the new spawned creatures or any creatures can drop waste for us to gather to use as fertlizer.

    Instead of removing it why not make it happen. No need to give up on it. It was on the schedule so some thoughts must have been given to it.

    Been waiting for fertilizer to be added for years. Not holding my breath as that doesn't seem high on Chris's todo list.

    It was mentioned and may show up as part of the Q2 crafting love iirc. There was a Chris stream now probably a couple of months ago, possibly when he was doing the 3 part 2020 vision streams where he talked about fertilizers.
