(Steam Version) Cannot plant seeds or sprouts

Hello! I'm new to the game, and have encountered a frustrating bug (?), or am missing some little thing...I can't plant any seeds or sprouts.

I found some wheat seeds, and promptly ran up to the surface and tilled a patch of dirt, activate the seeds so my character is holding them, and then left click the tilled plot- nothing happens. I tried clicking with both left and right mouse buttons, and when that didn't work, moved to un-tilled land and tried both buttons there. Nothing. I tried planting under ground just to be thorough, and it didn't work there either. I thought "maybe I'm missing something special I need for the wheat seeds, I'll try something else" and grabbed a few tree sprouts. Nothing. I tried tilled land, un-tilled land, right click, left click, above ground, and under ground. Then I tried all of that with a flower sprout. I can't plant any of them!

Needless to say I'm frustrated- I really want to mess around with the awesome farming system in this game, but for some reason I can't plant anything. I validated my game files through Steam, and tried a new save with a new character, and when that didn't help, tried a fresh install. Nothing fixed it.

Any help at all would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

Are you clicking the dirt block? You should be clicking the empty space above the tilled dirt. Should just be a normal click like you place blocks with.

No problem. Every once in a while someone comes through who's determined to plant their seeds IN the dirt, not ON the dirt.

Silly Twelve don't you plant your seeds in the dirt and not just throw them on the top soil?
