  • 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. Gday 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 growother vegetables as well, like corn and cabbages, to make his carrots happy.
  • 29. This was Crop Rotation. Every year Farmer Joe had to swaparound 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 sohe would be effectively sustaining his farm.
  • 36. Farmer John figured out that mulching his crops by simply buying or cutting up woodchips orcovering it with a layer of other plantmaterial, 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 theweeds and grasses and put nutrients in to the soil.
  • 38. To this day, Farmer Joe and FarmerJohn are happy farmers with their sustainably grown crops and vegetables
