Planting is a deliberate act, so different from the random joy of seeds landing where they might and volunteering to grow. Somehow this isn't always enough, just to sit back and let those things happen by themselves. The active participant conducts experiments with seeds, breaks branches or seedpods and tucks them in the dirt. They collect, transfer, sow, and care. There are no skipped steps; the process is not forgiving.
