    Every stop along the way is part of the destination

    Right. To bring a Korban,  one must raise the animal, grow the wheat, plant the vineyard, etc. Every preliminary step is essential to achieving the ultimate goal.  Knowing that every step of the journey is part of the destination gives comfort when the intermediate steps cause difficulties.  The same is true for the trials and tribulations of each generation raising and preparing the next so that a generation will be there when Moshiach comes.

    Every mitzvah needs preparation

    But...the mitzvahs of shaluach Hakan (sending away the mother bird) must be done without foreknowledge.  Same for the mitzvah of the forgotten sheaves. Others also.

    Many things are merely preparation for something else

    But, we shouldn't belittle preparation that occurs perforce before the ultimate goal. Hashem cherished the mirrors used by the women in Mitzrayim more than other things, to be used for the kinor. The mirrors were preparation to give birth to the next generation.

    Did Adam and Chava need cutlery which was

    Created only after them? Perhaps they had wooden cutlery, chopsticks, even plastic cutlery?

    The question how the first apple seed and all others

    We're formed is not a question like the first tongs.  The mishna is talking about what things were created erev Shabbos Bain hashmoshos, and ALL vegetation, animals etc were created during the 6 days of creation.
