Being vegetarian since for ever, and herbalist as well, I have often being asked and wondered myself, how the plants react to being cut and "killed".
What I slowly start to understand, is that plants have reactions, but not emotions, I still haven't figured it out completely, but with time I am sure all will be clear.
