Agriculture Update

We get our food by farming and hunting. Some of our crops we grew were barley, wheat, emmer, onion, cucumber, figs, and apples. There were droughts and that made the soil dry and the climate was hot so canals, dams,and dikes did not hold water. The rivers were unpredictable so we had to develop irrigation in order to survive. We dug canals, dams, and dikes to move water to our crops.
