Have you started to create the game?

1. You can easily add a timer, when it goes down a certain of time, it sends out to change signals on your trees and it will grow.

2. This is very much like Facebook game, do you understand how they work between the server and the players screen? Because, to have the farms still playing when a player logs off, you need to have a server to be kept on for 24/7

3. Autosave, try this: http://www.scirra.com/forum/autosave-game_topic59531.html

If there is a way to check the system timer of the server (or the users computer) the game is running on, in theory, you could store the time to a variable, then check the time difference between that variable and actual time when the player logs back in. Then you could calculate for each crop how much they would have grown based on that time. But I do not know if it's possible to check system timer.

Even then, players could cheat by changing the system time of their computers... And maybe you will need webstorage even with this approach.
