I grow plants from the seeds of cherry tomatoes that I purchased from the grocery store, ate, and then deposited in my waste. The seeds are then harvested and grow into fruiting plants. I continue the cycle by eating and growing further generations of the same tomatoes. This project illustrates the process of seed scarification; the way in which seeds travel through the digestive system of an animal in order to be broken down and prepared for germination and growth.
