  • we’ll keep creating fertilizer for them. They can use their leaves and vines like arms and threaten to choke us, but those damn plants don’t have the manual dexterity or the brainpower for chemistry. That’s their weakness.

  • Thus began the great plant-human war. Across the country houseplants were taken outside and left in the yard. Botanical gardens in every major city shutdown overnight. Without trust, coexistence became impossible. The first battle of significance occurred at Sugar Lake.

  • Rampant reeds and cattails stretched across the land choking off food crops. The humans looted storefronts, hoarding canned goods as they faced impending starvation. But, at the edge of town, deep in the forest, there lived an old hedgewitch, ostracized from townsfolk. Her plants
