Harvesting plant parts in the browser
At the bottom of the pictures side, when a plant is selected, you will see the plant harvest panel. Here you can see all the items that have been harvested
from the selected plant. Items in this list will also be in the harvest panel on the garden window, but these
are only the items harvested for the selected plant.
To harvest a fruit, first click the harvest mode button to enter harvest mode. The cursor will change to a hand. Move the cursor to the
base of a fruit, leaf, or inflorescence. If the item you are pointing at can
be harvested, a fruit or leaf icon will appear. To harvest it, click at the base of the fruit or leaf, and a
harvested fruit or leaf icon will appear in the plant harvest panel.
If the item you are pointing at cannot be harvested (because it is not normally harvested, it is unripe, or it
is dead), an organic matter blob will appear (a green blob). You can still pull it off the plant -- click at its
base, and it will disappear. Organic matter from the plant part will appear in the garden window.
