Author's comments and explanations:
This is an April's Fool run.

This is the story of a boy that is left in charge of managing a farm all by himself.

Normally, there are many activities you can do in this game, like to meet the villagers, get a chance to woo the girls, get married, have children, grow crops & attend to festivals, among other things. What their parents didn't knew is that Jack didn't wanted to do anything, so he just visit the town the first day and then do what Rip van Winkle & sleeps for 2 and a half years & skips to the ending.

I have a collection of memory addresses that could help anyone that is interested on making a normal run (though, it would likely be rejected for poor choice...): http://www.erick.guillen.com.mx/Codes/SNES%20Harvest%20Moon.txt

I'll provide some technical information I didn't included when I submitted it:

There are many types of endings in this game (up to 20, according to a guide). Since in this game you hardly play, you'll receive the worst ending. This is the requirement to trigger it: Unmarried, happiness less than 100, no livestock

Credits: Admiral's FAQ from GameFAQs, describes the requirements of all the endings (and other useful information if you plan to play it normally)

I made a quick encode for those who want to see the run:

FractalFusion: Rejected for using a password/code to skip to the credits. Nice try though.
