Inch by inch, row by row,
Got to make this garden grow.
All I need is a rake and hoe
And a piece of fertile ground...
-- Garden Song by Dave Mallet
Somewhat unexpectedly, I found myself home alone for the weekend (which is ok). But I thought, I should plan something for this evening. The cheap solution would be a video from the library, or for a bit more, a rental. But feeling a bit more social, I browsed the Weekend section and found a folk concert, a fellow named Dave Mallet (sponsored by Heartland Concerts). I listened to the samples on his website, then bought a ticket on line with a plan to spend the difference on one of the homemade dessert offerings.
Imagine my surprise to discover him to be the author of the above song. It is a favorite of the lower school children at my daughters' beloved former school, an essential part of the annual pageant! It was a great evening. I bought a CD. Umm, and the Welsh Cake was very tasty (see Recipes).
