    Default could ask from the soil

You must be new here. That’s not the way the game is played.” Then it would explain that you should plant the seed. You take care of it. You water it and cultivate the soil. You fertilize it. You protect it and nurture it. Then, if you do it well, you will get your plant or your fruit sometime later. You could ask from the soil forever, but it wouldn’t change things. You have to keep giving, keep nurturing, for the soil to bear...
