Dinkum is the newest farming and crafting game on Steam. In this down-under adventure, players can join up with their friends to explore a world based on the Australian outback. While the game may be a relaxing journey, building your town in the bush can be hard if you’re not prepared. In this guide, we’ll show you how to bury fruit for an early game garden.
Burying fruit in Dinkum
Before you can bury fruit in Dinkum, you will need a shovel. Purchasing a shovel first requires you to own an excavation license. You’ll have to save up permit points from other activities, and then go to Fletch to get this license. Afterward, you can buy a shovel from John for 1,200 Dinks.
Equip your shovel and dig a hole in the ground. This dirt will stay in your shovel until later. Next, equip any fruit and drop it directly into the hole. You can drop one piece of fruit at a time by pressing Q. Now, equip the shovel again, and use the dirt already in it to bury the fruit. The fruit needs to actually be in the hole and covered by the dirt in order to grow.
Buried fruit has a chance to grow into a new plant, which allows you to start an early garden before you’ve unlocked farming. Plants grown this way won’t contribute to farming milestones.
