hey people! its time to build a wheat farm! this is my first 'ible so enjoy!
Step 1: Eradicate Chickens
make sure you have no chickens in the area. this is a crucial step DO NOT SKIP!
Step 2: Build a Platform
build a 6x7 dirt platform and one more with 3 blocks in between
Step 3: Build Walls
build a wall around your platform with 2 blocks high on the side with a trench around the dirt on 3 sides, repeat on other side
Step 4: Fill Trenches
add water to the trenches on both sides
Step 5: Cover Water
cover the water the length of the trenches
Step 6: Build Contraption
build up the center, between the two dirt platforms. place 1x2 block high rise in the center. place pistons on both sides facing in. place wall along the edge. build a 3x4 rectangle above the pistons with a hollow center
Step 7: Place a Block
place a block behind and below the pistons
Step 8: Fire Up Contraption
place a redstone repeater behind the pistons facing the piston, lay down a redstone dust line along the edge of the wall, above the dirt and bring it down to the front and place a lever.
Step 9: Pull the Lever
PULL THE LEVER!!! pull it to make sure that you have the redstone circuitry in check, the pistons should close together like in the pic. put some water into the hollow rectangle above the pistons (while they are closed)
Step 10: Till the Soil
till the soil! it now should be watering the soil (the water in the trenches next to the dirt)plant your crops and wait
Step 11: Planting Time!
plant your crops. potatos, carrots and wheat will work in this contraption and............. wait........(5 days later) you crop should be grown by now so...
Step 12: Harvest!
PULL THE LEVER!!!! pull it... just do it.... you know you want to... when you pull the lever the water will come down and harvest the crop! sometimes it may miss the corners so what you want to do is place 2 blocks in front of the waterflow like in the pic. and the water should flow all the way to the end!
Step 13: Replant
replant. repeat. replant. repeat. ect. ect. ect.
note: i did this on creative so i could show you better but it works just as well on survival. you do NOT have to re-till the soil after the water flows through it. questions and comments appreciated! but be nice this is my first 'ible
have fun and keep crafting!!
