Although I might not have gone into farming extensively, but I have ample knowledge on how it can be carried out, because I remembered very well on how it can be done when we usually visit our grandparents in our home town. Farming is one of the easiest activity that anyone can perform, but it could be very technical in the sense that if the right procedures are not followed, the whole exercise could end up in futility.
In a nutshell, get a plot of land that you know its fertile. Clear it up using cutlass, after which leave it for the cleared grasses to dry up. After this, you can burn it up, but you have to be very careful so that the fire does not spill over to the surrounded farmlands. Next line of action would be plant whatever you want to cultivate on the prepared land. This would require the use of any suitable farming tools for the crop you are planting to till the soil.
For example, if you are planting cassava or yam or groudnut, you would make use of hoe or shovel. But if it's corn or okra, you would need only cutlass to plant them.
After the planting exercise, you can go home and pray for rainfall so that what you've planted would germinate. After germination, you need to weed the farmland from time to time or else, you won't have a bountiful harvest.
Once the life cycle of the crops planted is completed, you can go ahead and harvest your crops for either consumption or sale.
