Composting Queen

Sung to the tune of Dancing Queen by ABBA

Oooh
Growing plants
Watch them thrive
Creating soil that’s alive
Oooh, see that girl’s
Dirt so clean
She is the compost queen

Vegetables need some dirt to grow
Plant their seeds and they come up slow
Where they get the right sunlight
Starting in the spring
It’s a natural thing

And there is this girl I know
She loves plants and to make them grow
With a bit of good soil
Everything is fine
She grows amazing plants
And when she gets the chance

She is the compost queen
Tomatoes sweet
Yes her garden’s green
Compost queen
Feel the heat from the composting, oh yeah

Growing plants
Watch them thrive
Creating soil that’s alive
Oooh, see that girl’s
Dirt so clean
She is the compost queen

Everyday she’s adding more
No need to buy it from the store
Leftovers from the kitchen
Anything will do
It’s all good for the soil
And when your veggies spoil

She is the compost queen
Tomatoes sweet
Yes her garden’s green
Compost queen
Feel the heat from the composting, oh yeah

Growing plants
Watch them thrive
Creating soil that’s alive
Ooh, see that squirrel
Rummaging
Digging the composting

Digging the composting

=============================================

In case you would like an explanation on this one, Kat started collecting the compost from the SunRun Cafe here in Maynooth. She became really regular about it and the employees there started calling her the “Compost Queen”, which of course, kicked off my parody making skills right away.

  1. So how has your garden grown this year?

    1. Umm, medium results. Our tomatoes developed late, so most were still green by the time the hard frost hit. We do have a tonne of kale though. Our herbs did well too. Got a bit of broccoli, but the cabbages were attacked by white moths. So, some success, some not.
