A Short History of Gardening

Year 1: There is no soil. The world is made of two realms, the yin of water, and the yang of rock. Year 10: Some algae creeps up from the ocean to the rock. Year 100: A few simple creatures follow. Year 1,000: The algae dies and becomes soil for moss, grass, flowers, shrubs, and trees. Year 10,000: Land creatures imitate plants, becoming numerous and varied. Year 100,000: The creatures with the mutated brains discover a peculiar and deep ancestral joy from watching plants grow. Year 1,000,000: They create a thriving market in watering cans, seeds, and bags of soil.
