Question for Animal Crossing: Wild World

Joan the turnip lady won't give me Red turnips. Any time I talk to her she says I'm out of red turnips and I skipped about 20 sundays ahead over and over again and she still doesn't have any. Please tell me when she has some or how you get some.

She doesn't sell to time travellers!!! Go to the correct day on a sunday and she'll give you red ones.

Ok. You might wanna be a little patient. She only sells one red turnip each sunday. Only one! And please don't time travel. It's so annoying when people get all sorts of problems because of it. She will have a red turnip if you're a little patient!

Be patient.
Wait for an exact whole week and then go on Animal Crossing and she should have some red turnips with her.
Any one need help with growing the red turnips because I can help you on that too!

Patience is not what you need.
I have the same problem.

She says:
"Oh I'm sorry I'm all out of red turnips today. Come back next sunday and I'll see if I CAN'T remember to pack more"

Yes she acutally says can't.

It's really annoying cause my friend, she gets them EVERYTIME! I have only gotten maybe two turnips for the whole two years I've been playing. And both died, for no reason!

This has never been a problem for me only when Joan doesn't give me turnips. But since I have the golden watering can its always easy to grow them. Water them each day at least twice for a whole week.
Guest said: 17th Jun 2014 | REPORT
the golden watering can does nothing to make watering turnips easier. It just helps with growing golden roses from wilted black ones. -_-

Actually you can time travel. I got perfect red turnips by time traveling by one day and watering them each day. I gave it to Wendell and gotthe country guitar to give to kk slider for his pic

Plant the red turnip then dig it up right away it will be small but then you can give it to Wendell. ;-)

Hey fellow time travelers! I am a time traveler myself, and whenever I skipped to sunday to ask joan for red turnips she said she would try to remember to pack extra. I kept time skipping to sundays so she would give me some red turnips. She was always out. So I found a trick that I think will work for the time travelers. It worked for me but I'm not sure if it will work for others. Still you should try it to see if it will work. So heres the trick. Make it sunday on your game. Go to settings on your ds and instead of changing the date on the game (on the phone in the attic) you change the date on your can do this by starting your ds and instead of clicking on the game you click on the picture of the little ds on the bottom. Simply go to the picture of the blue clock and calendar.then click on the calendar that pops up on the top. Change the date to a week forward. This makes joan think that you waited a whole week. Go to your game and it says that it is now a week forward, which is still a sunday. Go to joan and she will sell you red turnips! I was so happy when I figured this out! Keep in mind that ther is a small possibility that it will not work, but it has worked for me and all my friends when I told them about it!

For those of you who time travel and want a golden axe, I Know how to fix this problem.

Read this carefully

1. Go to your DS settings.

2. Go to the calendar

3.change the calendar to the same day as it is in your Game.

However it effects the game. It travels back a couple of days. And when the day you asked joan for a red turnip, she%u2019ll say she%u2019s out of stock. So this means you DON%u2019T time travel and play day by day until you finally reach next Sunday.

Other time traveling consequences:

Resetti will never appear.

No spotlight items.


Villagers you are friends with either moved out.

I want to get red turnips. So I can get a golden axe but Joan always says she hasn't got any then says I'll remember to pack a extra pack but when I go to the next Sunday she doesn't have any. What should I do?

Change the date on your actual DS then go on to animal crossing and make sure it's the same time, then make sure it's a Sunday and go find Joan, on my game she is usually around at about 9 - 11 am. The glitch is annoying and stops you from making your money - le cry- but this should work as I have read many posts when it did, it also worked for me too!

My chemical romance are amazing.

This happens to me as well. It can be annoying but as previously said somewhere below, change the game time to a Sunday, then change the actual DS/DSi console's time to a week later. It worked for me so hope this helps Smile

But if this doesn't work then fell free to add my friend code and I will give you some free because I have 999,999,999 in my bank account.

P.S. My friend code is 193586429801
