She showed me how-to using lots of descriptive words and examples, and then let me have at it. That gave my brain several ways to remember what she'd said, while also giving my muscles independent means to recall the process. So, ask me how and I might say, "ummmm" but give me a trowel and a tomato plant, and my hands would get it right.
It doesn't need so much stem right now. Let's let it make more roots...
I saw muscle memory at work in Mom herself when, lost in Alzheimer's in her last years, she could not talk to me about sewing any more. Yet sit her down at a sewing machine and she could sew a line straight and true.
She's with me now, every time I set out tomato plants.
