I'll look up Mumbo Jumbo thanks for the advice.
Oh also on a side note! Just out of curiosity, is there a mod that prevents farmland trample? The nature of my house makes it so that my character jumps a bit while on the farm under the house. I know "why don't you just make the farm flat" well because i want it to look nice too. I have the stairs set up but sometimes it doesn't quite do it and i end up damaging my farm regardless
Random Things has an item called "Fertilized Dirt." It is dirt that automatically applies Bone Meal to your plants and they grow faster. They don't need to be near water, AND anything planted on it does not ever get trampled. It's a great item. From what I saw on Curse Forum, it is available for 1.12, so it would be your best bet.
