Dirt is a block found abundantly in the overworld.
Dirt will drop as an item when broken with any tool or by hand, but a shovel is the fastest way to break it.
Dirt is found at any altitude, and comprises the majority of the upper terrain layers in most overworld biomes.
Dirt's primary use is for farming, but it can also be used as a highly available building block. Dirt has the ability to grow saplings, sugarcane, mushrooms which can be planted directly in dirt in appropriate conditions.
