It's really interesting how much time Frodo in particular spends sleeping in TTT. I get the feeling Tolkien was drawing specifically on the bone-weariness of living in the trenches, where (apparently) one slept whenever one possibly could, because one never knew when shells would start falling.

Right around the time Sam and Gollum argue about rabbits, Frodo is sleeping on some brown FERNS, which would fit with what might be a plant theme.
