Welcome to the stable food supply wiki

Here is some information about the stable food supply in Mesopotamia. This page was made by Josh A. Caroline L. Alex M. and Gavin B.

The Mesopotamians grew fruits, vegetables, flax, barley, wheat, and sesame. Sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs were raised by farmers.
The Mesopotamians built canals to bring water to land from the river this was called an irragation system.

Surplus of grain: Mesopotamians planted wheat, barley, dates, and vegetables including cucumbers, onions, apples, and spices.

Rivers: People lived in the southern plains of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.

Stable food supply: There was enough rainfall to grow crops. The region was also home to wheat, barley, sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs. These were the plants and animals that were eventually domesticated.
