All items are time specific, the quicker you do it, the better it is. Because of that it's suggested to use the "sacrificial animal" method.
This is to place a "sacrificial" item of the type you want to make on your homestead. Use that item to request the Wall Post needed but DO NOT CRAFT.
Then, once you have enough, place a BRAND NEW item of the type you need to grow, craft all the amount you need and feed instantly, all 32/34 feeds as quickly as possible.
This usually results in a winning item.
