Summary

Seed by seed, we plant the wild meadow garden_wind and water, birds and animals, plants and people_all of us together. In this lyrical picture book, author Kathryn O. Galbraith explains the many ways in which seeds are spread and planted. A farmer and her son plant vegetables in their garden, and the wind carries a few seeds away. Birds and animals may carry some along with them on their travels. Sometimes the rain washes them away to a new and unexpected location. And sometimes something more extraordinary occurs, as in when the pods of the Scotch Broom plant open explosively in the summer heat, scattering seed everywhere like popcorn. Year-round, we all play a role in the dispersal of seeds throughout our landscape, planting the wild garden together.
