about

Gardening is my favorite hobby. Whether I'm seeding early in the season, raking compost into my raised beds, or eating tomatoes off the vine (or bush), I love gardening. So I wrote a ballad about it.

lyrics

It’s hard to wait
For seeds to germinate
But still I watch ‘em everyday

And soon they’ll grow
Too slow for me to notice
It’s becoming quite apparent
That its hard to be a parent.

And even though my children don’t talk back
I know that it won’t be long
Until the forces of nature attack them all
Be it pest or beast or squall
(pest or beast or squall we’ll beat them all you’ll see next fall)

May arrives
The morning frost subsides
It’s time to move outside

Oh how you’ve grown
So quickly I have noticed
I hope the bees will pollinate
So I can eat like Michael Pollen ate

And even though my children don’t talk back
I know that it won’t be long
Until the forces of nature attack them all
Be it pest or beast or squall
(pest or beast or squall we’ll beat them all you’ll see next fall)

Summer Comes and brings a cloudy sky
My little ones are calling out for light
Yellow leaves have led me to believe
That a nasty case of blight
Will be our final fight

Oh we’ll fight back (oh we’ll fall back)
No we won’t slack (no, we won’t slack)
Till autumn harvest is here

My squash tastes great
With heirloom toma-toes
I can’t wait to get started on my garden next year.
