Thread Name: Children's songs about gardens/plants
Subject: RE: Children's songs about gardens/plants
Not strictly about gardening, but I remember the band Metamora doing a song "Little Potato" (as a term of endearment), on their album "Roots, Crops & Ground Cover." I don't know that it ever came out as anything other than a cassette album packaged in a paper envelope like a packet of seeds, and I don't remember which of the trio wrote the song.
"Children" spans a big enough age range that some songs that aren't overtly pitched to childeren can be good for older ones, fer instance: if you wanted to teach about how to garden, Dillon Bustin's GARDENING is in the DT.
'nother garden goodie song that comes to mind is the one Guy Clark wrote about "Home grown tomatoes"
