After several days of concentrating on farming, I was ready to head out again to the Mesa biome. I had forgotten how long it can take to get farming going to where you’d like it to be. I’m collecting pumpkins, sugar cane, beef, pork, chicken, and wheat.
It turned out that chickens were the easiest things to deal with. My chicken coop fits a metric ton of chickens, and I let them reproduce by feeding them seeds – if you don’t, you end up with chests full of seeds. I pick up a ton of eggs each time I enter the coop, and would head up to a nearby area to hatch them all. On occasion, I would enter each area and kill chickens for awhile.
Didn’t make much headway with bread, between socking it away and needing bigger fields. Bigger fields were being constructed waiting for everything to grow.
But armed with around 640 food items I headed out. First I cross extreme hills, on my way to the Great Quagmire (a large swamp). Next up is the John Birch Forest, followed by plains and more extreme hills.
You (presumably) re-enter the John Birch Forest after crossing the plains, followed by more plains.
And at last the Mesa Clay digging point is reached.
