For some reason, I love growing stuff in Minecraft. Probably because there’s no actual work or dirt involved.
So one of the first things I do is go around whaling the tar out of tufts of grass. Every ten tufts or so leaves a handful of seed floating in the air. When I collect ten of those handfuls, I go plant them. Sometimes the seeds fall down when I whack the bejeebus out of tree leaves. Either way, what they grow is wheat. Yeah, what can I say, it’s Minecraft.
Sometimes you can find pumpkins growing in the wild, which is fun. Put one pumpkin onto a crafting table to get pumpkin seeds and plant them. Just make sure there’s a strip of ground next to the strip where you’ve planted your pumpkin seeds, of the suckers will never pop out a pumpkin.
When I was in a jungle biome, I found melons in the wild and grew them, though you couldn’t do anything with them, like you can with pumpkins (Jack-o-lanterns! Wheee!)
But I want to grow MORE!
So far, I haven’t been able to find any beetroot, which doesn’t tear me up too much, since I hate, loathe, and despise beets, but I would grow it if I found it. Because gardens.
I walked and I wandered and I swam until I found a village. Here’s a village with some villagers (who are identical except for their clothes). If you look closely at the background, you can see one of their gardens.
No, I didn’t kill them with my pickax. But I did go into their garden and harvest some of their potatoes and carrots. I replanted for them — I’m not a total barbarian — but I took some of their harvest and ran home with it.
And I planted it.
Such a scofflaw I am!
I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a chopped salad that didn’t kill us.
