I'm using a 3x3 MultiFarm and it works for the most part I think. But I left it idle and it seems to have glitched or my understanding is not correct. When it initially placed the bog earth, it left blocks of water which confused me until I read that a block of water needs to be touching (diagonals count) every block of bog earth in order to produce peat bog. But when I came back to it, everything was bog earth and there was no water block. I observed it for a while and it still didn't create the blocks of water. I then destroyed some of the bog earth blocks and it finally placed some blocks of water. But it didn't cover all the blocks, is this normal/intended?
It seems to me the easiest thing to do is the "fence" up all the bog earth and just place water on top of it.

- I've adjust time if that's relevant
