Planting rice right next to water?
Seeing as how stuff has a tendency to fall into water if it's adjacent to it, is it a bad idea to plant rice right next to ponds etc... or is it safe?

I'm currently testing it out to see if it's safe. So far I'm trusting it lol

So far so good, Junimos harvest most of mine anyway.

1.4 seems to have a new "curb" on ponds. I've had a few berries that used to fall off the bush in town, no longer fall into the water. Same with trees - less wood is falling into the water.

If you're worried, though, I think it works up to 3 or 4 tiles away from the water, so you could leave a blank space if you're worried.

Just went and tested so you can see how far rice is "allowed" to be from water. The "blue" soil means it's close enough to water, and diagonal seems to work too.

And do you have to water them since they are close to the water? It looks like you do not have to water but I have not played enough game days with the planted rice to finish the test so thought I would ask.

FYI: you do need a scarecrow to protect the crop. completely forgot to put one in range and lost a rice plant the first day!

No, you don't have to water. Thanks for the tip about the scarecrow, though.

Thanks for the info about distance from water and the scarecrow tip! Appreciate it both of you!

Nope, only natural bodies of water work.
