I swear. Plants are smart. They know what's up and where it's at. This is a post for sharing such observations. I'll start with a real obvious one I have noticed time and again.

Plants use rain and wind to conquer more territory. Plants grow towards light and when a heavy rain falls or the winds blow it weights the plant down and the plant topples towards the area with the best sunlight. And they've got the timing figured out as this seems to happen most often right when the seeds are about 90 percent mature. It's great knowing what the plant wants. They communicate quite clearly. And though I'm going to harvest them, I know exactly where I'm going to put its seed next year. Right where the plant itself has chosen.
