Also, HappyM, when the hunter gatherers of the Middle East started farming, they would have started off in a small way, having realised that seeds produced plants, they would probably have cultivated areas not unlike a modern allotment or veg garden; not huge fields waving with wheat like a modern farm. So it could be argued that being able to grow food instead of having to hunt it, liberated humans to start creating artifacts; civilisation, the start of modern culture, and all because a few people started 'gardening'.
