I noticed the upcoming compost barrel, and I like the concept, but I think it could be better. It's going to compost some crops into bone meal, which I get, as it's the game's fertilizer, but it doesn't make sense. That's why I propose a new block, fertilized dirt. It would be blacker than normal or wet dirt, and would cause an accelerated growth cycle in plants. It would also sprout grass and flowers fairly quickly, so if you want to plant crops you have to do it fast. You should be able to hoe the grass away and still have fertilized dirt. It should also appear around pigs, to simulate the fertility they add and give them another function, and be mine-able. It could be crafted using a block of dirt, a lump of charcoal, and a bone meal. To take it a step further, it could be like an entity and have hp that would reduce for every plant taken, crops or grass, and when it got to zero it would degrade into normal dirt.
