How do you plant hay fields?

Hay does not need the amount of tractor work other crops do, most hay feilds are natural grasses that are already growing (however, farmers do add in a variety of grasses), hay fields do not need to be sprayed or cutivated pre or post planting.

Does mushroom grow underground?

yes, unlike plants that require photosynthesys to make their food, mushrooms are decomposers and get their food from rotting vegitation.
