Better late than never is the second questline given by Rafael. As with his first, Free at Last, it usually is given when the player is at Level 4. In fact, it's usually delivered within seconds of the player completing the second half of Free at Last.
This is a three-part questline, with parts as follows:
Part 1 of 3:
Note: If you make the "3 goods" that you sell to Myra a Forest Charm, an additional apple (additional to the one you should have left over from the last quest) and an additional applesauce (again, in addition to the one you have from the previous quest), you should be able to level up to Level 5 by the end of this part of this quest.
Part 2 of 3:
As with the Cow Pasture required to complete Magnus' Milking It quest (with which this questline generally runs concurrent), the Lumber Yard in part 3 of this quest is not available until you reach Level 6 in the game. If you're not there by the time you receive this quest, just keep adventuring in the watchtower, and you soon will be.
