Stardew Valley Seasons In Detail
Each season in Stardew Valley has its own significance. Each season that comes brings with it new crops to farm, new or changed ways to earn money, and more. In the game, each season has a special set of items they come with. Each of them is identified by an unique group of crops.
These crops can only be cultivated during the specific seasons in which they are grown. Additionally, JojaMart’s seed inventory changes with the seasons as well. The time schedule of the residents also changes with the seasons.
Each season brings not only new crops to farm, but also new fishes and wild plants. You can collect these season exclusive items only in their respective seasons. If a new season starts and you miss or forget to get them during their season, you must wait for an entire in-game year to get them again.
Season specific crops also wither away at the end of their season, if not farmed. So you must make sure to also farm them in their time, otherwise all the seeds and effort you spent on planting and growing them goes to waste.
Your farm will also experience minor damage as the seasons change, including the decline of tilled ground and the appearance of random debris that must be removed before planting can continue.
When the seasons change, land that is still cultivated stays in good condition. Your farm goes through a serious decline when winter turns to spring (the subsequent year), and more debris starts to accumulate.

The crops grown in the fall season sell for a lot. This would be very valuable to you, as you want to maximize the profits before the winter comes. The fall is basically spent in preparing for what’s to come in winter.
Winter is the fourth and last season of the year. This month comes after fall. The winter month is the harshest out of all. There is no active way to earn money from crops in this season.
No crops are available to be farmed in winter. If you had crops you forgot to farm, they’ll just wither. In winters, there is snow all over the land, and everyone is seen wearing winter clothes.
The time schedules also change like every season. The winter month is spent trying to ready up your farmland for the upcoming lush spring, and making money from other sources like mining, fishing, foraging etc.
