Dan and I were left physically and emotionally drained after the first recording session for the Can You Dig It? CD. Our mistake was stuffing our faces with doughnuts instead of munching carrot sticks and other wholesome vegetable snacks. Nevertheless we managed to rattle through 15 songs in total with another three or so to go. This will not only be the best vegetable cultivation-based album EVER but also the longest. In fact, just yesterday I wrote ANOTHER song. I was particularly pleased with it as it features a vegetable not yet mentioned in any of our other songs – the cauliflower. I have obsessively been keeping track of the different vegetables featured in the show on a computer spreadsheet. So far the grand total is 37 (plus four fruit). Dan finds my propensity for making lists somewhat worrying but I am sure I remember him telling me that he has some kind of crop rotation spreadsheet for his allotment beds, which is too organised even for me.
