Automated Pumpkin and Melon Farming


Why farm pumpkins and melons? And a lot of them?

Eating Pumpkin Pie is good for your health.

Pumpkin pie is one of the fastest foods to fill your hunger bar up - meaning you have to eat fewer in order to get full. This is quite helpful in battles.

Turn pumpkins and melons into diamond armor.

Farmers in villages will trade 1 emerald for anywhere from 3 to 8 pumpkins/melons. Those emeralds can be used to buy hard-to-collect items like diamond armor, enchanted books, diamond tools, and ender pearls (for starters).
