    A crop must be considered and treated as a growing crop from the time the seed is deposited in the ground, as at that time the seed loses the qualities of a chattel, and becomes a part of the freehold, and passes with a sale of it. Wilkinson v. Ketler, 69 Ala. 435. Growing crops of grain, and other annual productions rai.sed by cultivation of the earth and industry of man, are personal chattels. Growing trees,' fruit, or grass, and other natural products of the earth, are parcel of the land. Green v. Armstrong, 1 Denio (N. Y.) 550.
