Version originale en français. Patrice Fortier est un agriculteur qui a étudié en art. Dans son jardin, on retrouve des espèces de plantes anciennes desquelles il extrait les semences pour les vendre et perpétuer de « nouvelles » variétés. En cultivant minutieusement ces spécimens uniques, il rêve de les transformer en oeuvres d'art. Il fait des tableaux avec des carottes, des perruques avec des fleurs et des contes avec des patates. Il va même jusqu'à forcer l'hybridation de deux spécimens ou à polliniser lui-même ses plantes afin que l'espèce reste pure.
