If you garden, I’ll bet you’ve talked to your plants before. Don’t worry, I do it, too. It’s perfectly normal. Common even. People talk to all kinds of animate and sometimes inanimate things – they also give them names. Take trees and fast cars, for example. It doesn’t matter if anyone knows you talk to your plants or not, we’ll keep that our little secret. But if you are a gardener trying to save pure seed, you’ll want to take those pet names and give them some botanical teeth!
