Right-click/place action with most plants, leaves, harvest, grass... will create/add compost. Once full another right-click/place action will give back bonemeal. Each item has different chance for creating compost. In general items harder to obtain have higher chance of creating compost. Additionally other mods can add group {compost = 50} to the items, where the number is chance of creating compost.

Crates and Bags

Crafting crate/bag will give you empty crate/bag and can be used as a storage for raw farming items. Storage holds up to 1 stack making it work as "place-able" stacks. Crate/bag can be dug and carried while remembering the contents of the crate/bag. After placing the crate/bag you can access the contents again with right click (or the key by placing the node). List of items what can be placed in crates: melon, pumpkin_block, coffee, corn, obsidian_wart, potato, beetroot, carrot, cocoa_bean, kiwi_fruit, cactus_fruit_item, strawberry, pine_nut, stevia, soybean, fish, wheat, cotton. List of items what can be placed in bags: salt.

Ice Fishing

Ice fish for getting various kinds of fish, treasures and junk. What type of fish you get depends on the biome where you'r fishing and how many ice blocks are directly around your fishing equipment (there has to be space above the ice and nothing can obstruct the ice otherwise it will not count). For planting you fishing equipment you need to first drill a hole in ice using Ice Auger. Ice fishing equipment can be crafted, occasionally dropped out from digging your ice fishing equipment and can also spawn in cold biomes.

Do you recommend this mod?

  • The best farming mod I found for minetest

    Very cohesive mod with beautiful textures (different from farming_redo). And a lot of food variation (which I think is missing for minetest)

  • Best Farming for Minetest

    Nice textures, variaety of crops (not overwhelming like other mods). Easy to play with, adds pretty blocks what you can craft from your crops, fishing is fun - you have to be in the sea biom to get good catch though. I can keep going, there are is still more things I have to discover... overall its fun and gives satisfying rewards. Good job!

  • Works Well can't get enough

    I love this mod.

    Water source place well placing bone meal, as well as posin ivy, and payrus, bug, right?

  • nice to look at but

    is this suppose to do something? because the strawberry seeds grow anything besides bushes that are empty
