Where to Get Vegetables
ACNH - Leif Leif's Shop ACNH - Kapp Kapp'n's Tours

You can either buy various veggie starts from Leif or find them on mysterious islands on Kapp'n Boat Tours. Leif sells them both at your island and at Harv's Plaza, but his shop refreshes weekly, so don't be surprised if Leif sells you the same crops several days in a row!

2. Plant the Crops and Vegetables

Once, you have the start you want to plant, use a shovel to dig a hole, then select the Start or Vegetable from your pockets or inventory and choose to “Plant 1.”

3. Let the Crops Grow

If you water your crops daily, you can get a maximum of three vegetables to grow on one plant. They will still grow without watering though, so you can also go for a hands-off approach!

4. Harvest Your Vegetables!

After 4 days, you'll be able to harvest your crop and enjoy the fruits of your own labor! Or the fruit (singular) if you didn't water.

Note that harvesting crops resets them to their Day 2 crop cycle, which means you'll only have to wait three days to harvest them again!
