How to Clear Puddles
One of the many obstacles you will need to deal with when you arrive at your grandfather's farm in Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town are puddles. Puddles will appear at random locations each day around the farm, and they can only be cleared by the bucket which you must first unlock. You will not be able to unlock the bucket until Clemens arrives at your farm on the 7th day of Spring and gives it to you. Once you have obtained the bucket you will be able to clear a puddle by standing next to it and pressing the Y button on your controller to scoop it up.Mar 24th 2021, ID#1349| REPORT
When you clear a puddle you will collect clay, this is a resource that can be used in crafting recipes and machines. It is worthwhile using the bucket to clear puddles and even ponds that are around your farm as doing so will raise your Draining skill level which will unlock certain permanent bonuses for your game.
