This page offers a guide on how to make the Basic Planting Kit, which is required for farming in My Time at Sandrock.
How to Unlock the Basic Planting Kit
Before you can farm, you’ll first need to unlock the recipe to make the Basic Planting Kit. You’ll get the recipe in the mail from Zeke the day after you complete Moisture Farm Blues.
To make the materials outlined above, you’ll need the following raw resources:
- 54 Copper Ore
- 20 Tin Ore
- Mechanical Scraps - get as much as you can because the Old Parts are a random drop.
- 18 Rubber or Rubber Scraps (Rubber Pipes and Rubber are a random drop)
How to Make Copper Sticks
Copper Sticks can either be obtained by recycling Copper Scraps, or you can also use a Processor to make Copper Sticks using Copper Bars. You’ll need 2 Copper Bars for every 1 Copper Stick, so for 3 sticks you’ll need x6 Copper Bars (x24 Copper Ore).

How to Get Copper Ore
Copper Ore is the most abundant ore in the mines. It can be found on the first level of the Abandoned Ruins and you’ll be able to get hundreds of the stuff in no time. You’ll get the most Copper Ore from mining big Copper Crystals found in the mines, but you’ll also get some ore from clearing the blue-brown debris that blocks your path.
How to Make Bronze Bars
Bronze Bars can be made in the Furnace with x3 Copper Ore and x2 Tin Ore. You’ll need to build a furnace before you can forge Bronze Bars yourself! If you’re making all 10 Bronze Bars, you’ll need x30 Copper Ore and x20 Tin Ore.
The main way obtain these materials is to mine them in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins. Copper Ore is found on every level and is easily collected.
Tin Ore can only be found in the mines once you’ve reached and unlocked at least the 3rd level of the Abandoned Ruins. To get to deeper levels of the mine, you need to search for door ways and holes downwards - most of the time they’ll be hidden behind depris so you’ll need to dig through it. It can be mined from silver spikey crystals. Once you’re at levels lower than the 3rd level, tin ore is very common and easy to mine.
Alternatively, if you don’t fancy going mining, you can purchase Bronze Bars from Hammertime - the smithing shop. Prices fluctuate in Sandrock, but one Bronze Bar will cost around 45 Gols. Or, you could purchase some Tin Ore and Bronze Ore from Eufaula Salvage Shop. Bronze Ore costs 4 each and Tin Ore costs 8 so it’s cheaper than purchasing the Bronze Bars outright.
How to Get Rubber Tubes
Rubber Tubes can be obtained in one of two ways. Firstly, you could recycle a bunch of Rubber Scraps in the recycler in hopes of getting the 6 Rubber Tubes you need. Rubber Scraps can be obtained from Junk Piles and Rubber piles in Eufaula Salvage yard.
Secondly, you could make Rubber Tubes using the Grinder. To make 1 Rubber Tube, you’ll need 3 Rubber. In total you’ll need x18 Rubber to make 6 Rubber Tubes. If you’ve not made a Grinder yet, head over to our guide for more information on how to unlock and build one!
Before you can make Rubber Tubes in the grinder, you’ll need to purchase the recipe from the Commerce Guilde Store. It costs around 44 Gols depending on price fluctuation.

How to Get Rubber
Rubber can either be obtained from recycling Rubber Scraps, or it can also be found from just digging in Junk Piles. Make sure to check out Eufaula Scrap yard every day to get as many resources as you can!
How to Get Old Parts
One of the easiest ways to get Old Parts is to recycle Mechanical Scrap in the Recycler. It’s a random drop but if you have enough Mechanical Scrap you’ll have no problem getting any Old Parts.
Mechanical Scraps can be obtained from quarrying Junk piles or Mechanical Scrap piles in the Eufaula Salvage Yard.
Alternatively, you can also occasionally find Old Parts when mining in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins.
