I've buried my 2 normal shovels every day and dug them up 2 days later every day for 2 weeks, but they're never golden. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to dig them up with a normal shovel instead of a silver one?
All that said, the silver shovel is actually more useful.
The ability to make bell trees is kinda "meh" as the chances of actually making money on those are actually against you.
The silver shovel has a chance of turning your daily bell rock into a gem rock that spits out a whole bunch of gems, including gold ones. If you're going after gold furniture, it's nice to have that chance.
I once saw something on a palm tree, and I thought "rare beetle!" so I
pulled out my net and caught it, but it was just a tree bass. -DrTapeworm
