When I planted fresh seed with very poor germination results I started asking questions. Nothing that I had done could easily explain the poor results, so I asked soil to show me the problem. After starring at the soil for a very long time, I noticed my seeds appeared to be moving from underneath the soil to the surface. After rubbing my eyes and focusing real hard, here is what I saw.
I hope you can see the ant carrying my germinated seed away like a triumphant warrior returning from battle with the spoils of war.
