The people of Mesopotamia grew: They grew barley, crops, and vegetables

What did they do with the surplus of grain?: They traded for money and goods
What problems did they have concerning food supply? The people did not know when a flood would happen so that could ruin their crops. They also did not know when a drout would happen so that could dry out their crops.

One legend says: hanging gardens were built so that the king and queen could have a private place to enjoy their garden.
People today still don't know if hanging gardens existed back in Mesopotamia
