It's a long way from the harvest. FIrst, the soil had to be prepared by removing any barriers to receiving the seeds and allowing them to grow well. Then, the seeds were planted in bunches. Most of them took root, so they had to be watered and tended carefully so that they could grow and survive the translplanting. Next, the seedlings were gathered in small bunches and tenderly planted in a good environment where they could get their nourishment. Sometimes the farmer must carry the water to the young plants, but he does this because he wants them to grow. Now, he will watch carefully, and tend to the plants until the time for harvest. He will provide what they need. Remind you of anything?
