At someones suggestion, I am posting a music video of a song I have written about my incredible LOVE of gardening.
It is called With this seed, ... and I am sure MANY of you can relate to my passions about Seeds.
In it I also discuss something everyone else here would be passionate about... a dumptruck load of compost...
WITH THIS SEED

I don't have sound on my computer, GWN. Any chance of having the words?

With this seed I plant the hopes of what I might reap in the fall
May it rest a little while until the sun has warmed the soil
When it is ready to, I hope that it will send
A little root a little deeper, towards the sun a little stem
With a seed I plant tomorrows, I would not be here today
Were it not for someone clever who was planting yesterday

Man has always favored gems that catch the sun a certain way
But there is no greater treasure than the one I plant today
For a ruby cannot shelter me from the icy winds
And a lump of gold cannot supply the air that we breathe in
All the diamonds in the world a hungry child will never feed
So why are we counting diamonds when we should be counting seeds?

It’s the seed that fuels the part of me that loves to watch it grow
From the tiny little groundswell to the first of leaves to show
To the stem that reaches up to where the sun can shine upon
The leaves and photosynthesis can show us how it’s done
My grandfather was a farmer, guess he passed that on to me
And a finer an inheritance a child could not receive

With this seed I plant the hopes for generations from today
May its strongest offspring flourish and its weakest fade away
It’s the way it’s always happened prior to the world of men
Who to maximize their profits would destroy it in the end
With this seed I plant tomorrows, I would not be here today
Were it not for someone clever who was planting yesterday Smile
