Minecraft is 10 years old, but it is still at the top of the most played games on all platforms. From Windows PCs to consoles and mobile devices, this game has over 200 million officially sold copies. In fact, the audience of players is much larger. Just imagine how many people play Minecraft every day, installing them from third-party installers.
And all these players have the same problems. When launching Minecraft in survival mode, they face a lack of resources. Yes, we are talking about food. Therefore, in this article, you will learn about creating a vegetable and fruit farm.
1. Obtain Seeds of Fruits, Vegetables, and Other Crops
In order to create a vegetable farm in Minecraft, you need to obtain seeds. This can be done in several ways. For example, rob village farms or organize a raid on chests. This will give you pumpkins, melons, watermelons, apples, and other plants.
Wheat can be found in haystacks in the village. Sugarcane usually grows near water.
There are other plants in Minecraft as well. For example, mushrooms, cactuses, and cocoa beans. They are needed to cook some dishes, but by themselves they are useless. And special conditions must be created for their cultivation. Consider if you want to grow everything or choose multiple crops.
2. Choose a Location for the Farm
Choosing a place to plant your plants is one of the most important conditions for the success of your farm. It is necessary that the territory has the same level so that it will be easier for you to observe and take care of the site.
Choose land near your home. Ideally, the entrance to the farm should be located close to the entrance to the house. If there is no flat area next to the house, then take a little time and prepare it. Arm yourself with a shovel and start digging!
3. Build a Farm Area
Once you find the area, it’s time to start preparing the farm. Dig horizontal and vertical trenches all over the farm. Deepen them one square. This will be the water channel.
It will also be helpful to dig a deeper trench around the perimeter of the farm to protect it from nighttime zombie raids. Don’t forget to put up a fence.
There are many ways to make a farm for plants. But we, for example, always use an area of the correct shape and alternate irrigation canals with strips of land. Thus, you can prepare as many places as you like for planting vegetables, fruits, and cereals. And not be afraid that water will not flow to them.
Have you prepared the farm area and surrounded it with a fence? It’s time to plant your seeds! Once you’re done, sit back and wait. You may even hear these plants grow.
Once the seeds have turned into ready-made vegetables, fruits, and cereals, it’s time to harvest and prepare your meals. Potatoes will restore more health after baking, while carrots and other vegetables are best eaten as they are. Wheat is best used to make bread.
Some vegetables/fruits can be used for other purposes as well. For example, melon and pumpkin make great decorations. By the way, pumpkins emit light when placed underwater.
Plants can also be used for feeding and breeding animals. Wheat will help increase the number of cows and sheep, while carrots are useful for raising pigs.
