    3. Farmer Joe is a carrot farmer.

    4. Farmer John grows wheat and oat crops.

    5. They have both owned their farms for 10 years.

    6. Sustainable Farming. 100km Although they still haven’t discovered sustainable farming.

    7. Farmer Joe sprays his crop...

    8. Then ploughs his crop...

    9. Leaves his crop to fallow. newspapernewspaper newspaper newspaper newspaper newspaper newspapernewspaper newspaper newspaper newspaper newspaper Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    10. Then he fertilizes his crop...

    11. Sprays his crop again...

    12. Then seeds his crop.

    13. Every year! Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over AGAIN!

    14. Every year Farmer Joe was baffled.

    15. Why did his carrots keep dying? R.I.P. Carrots 

    16. Why didn’t they grow like they did in the good old days? 23rd march 1972

    17. Framer Joe thought it was time he went and asked farmer John. G'day Mate!

    18. Turned out Farmer John had many problems of his own.

    19. Farmer John’s crops kept getting taken over by weeds and grasses. ?

    20. He tried ploughing them...

    21. But that didn’t work. So he tried poisoning them.

    22. But that just killed his crops!

    23. The last thing John tried was covering the field with newspaper.

    24. But Famer John didn’t have enough and it started to blow away. =(

    25. Then Farmer Joe had an idea. Why not ask Google? Google.com

    26. Google was a smart man, and told them many things. Oooh! I see. Google.com

    27. Farmer Joe just had to use a thing called crop rotation

    28. In simple terms, Joe just had to grow other vegetables as well, like corn and cabbages, to make his carrots happy.

    29. This was Crop Rotation.Every year Farmer Joe had to swap around different types of vegetables

    30. Framer Joe set out his 4 year plan. My Plan

    31. One year would be his beloved carrots,

    32. Then the next year Joe could grow corn,

    33. After that would be tomatoes,

    34. Then lastly cabbages.

    35. Farmer Joe would repeat this plan so he would be effectively sustaining his farm.

    36. Farmer John figured out that mulching his crops by simply buying or cutting up woodchips or covering it with a layer of other plant material, then putting it on the crop is the BEST way to grow!!

    37. Here is Famer John’s new, nicely mulched crop! He decided to use hay/silage in order to control the weeds and grasses and put nutrients in to the soil.

    38. To this day, Farmer Joe and Farmer John are happy farmers with their sustainably grown crops and vegetables
