    Read the article this morning on another news outlet, but to be fair the authors themselves said that they don't think plants actually experience pain or are "crying" in any way. Sounds are made naturally by shifting that occurs, and this occurs more frequently when they are overly dry (or words to that effect).

    The sounds they make are in a frequency that we can't hear at all.

    So I guess the old philosophical question can be re-asked as follows: "If a tree screams in the forest but nobody hears it, did it really make a sound?"
    "We are not provided with wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can take for us, an effort which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world." --M. Proust

    My tomatoes are so wet this year that they are not happy. I can tell this by the way they look. I couldn't hear them crying.
