Soup will automatically be made from Pumpkins, but can also be made [manually] from Berries, Mushrooms, and Eggs.
30 Nectars = 5 days (IRL), while it is best to use it when you are planning to be active for 30 minutes straight, you can always pause the use of your Nectar.
Scrolls are used to expedite research.
Stumps eventually disappear on their own, but you can build over them.

There are various currencies in the game:
Coins: Used for purchase of unlocked buildings.
Gems: Official in-game currency, can be purchased and used in the Shop.
Hearts: Rewarded when completing certain tasks from the Valley. Collecting them will improve your Reputation Road, and unlock various rewards as you progress.
Events have been introduced in Everdale through Valleys. A guest will come to your Valley with a series of limited time tasks to be completed in order to unlock various rewards for your Valley.
What is Valley?
Valleys are growing city hubs where you collaborate with other players by building or even trading together. Upon unlocking Valleys, you will be automatically associated to an existing Valley.
Valleys are where you will have access to various resources (Sheep Pasture for wool, Tailor for clothes for villagers, Great Library to unlock improved studies for your Village, Bakery for bakery products, Wheat Field for wheat, etc.)
With other players, you will complete timed tasks through the Harbor for rewards (Coins).
How to create/join a Valley?
Valleys can be unlocked via the Study once upgraded to level 4.
How to leave a Valley?
To leave a Valley, you simply have to tap the Community icon (blue with three silhouettes at the bottom left when in the Valley) > tap Browse Valleys > select a new Valley either by entering its code or by choosing among the available ones > tap Join Valley.
Yes, you must always be part of a Valley, so best join one that matches your play style.
No landscape mode available except on tablets.
