As every explorer should, Fred has a vast number of interests that become handy on his trips.  On his last trip to an unknown location he came across a number of seeds that he did not recognize.  He brought them home and planted them to see what kinds of plants he could get to grow.  Nothing has sprouted yet, but he checks diligently each day, checking on water levels and soil quality.  He tells me that plants are one of the most exciting things, especially planted from seeds.  You never know what is going to be coming up, poking through the soil!  As long as it isn’t another zombie, I tell him.
