Just tried to start my gardening and when I put the spell out to make a small plot the plot didn't show up. In fact, I tried 3 times and none of them showed up. When I closed the gardening tool a plot showed up where I was standing but then disappeared when I left and came back to my home. Are there any other reports of this issue?
Not to sound dumb or anything, but let me ask you a few questions about your question. Are you attempting to float the small plot? Are you getting the 'green light' check mark at any point? Are there other soil plots in the vicinity (can cause problems)? Are you seeing a 'red' small soil plot (indicating there is an issue)? Have you been able to place a small plot (your mention of soil beneath your character)?
