Vegetables; The Musical!

Multimedia is the name of this game, so if you want to get the full fun instead of only half of it please click on the video to start the music. By the time you've grinned yourself through this post the song will have finished. Enjoy!


I'm gonna be round my vegetables Vita: do I really have to sit here?
I'm gonna chow down my vegetables Tara: what is this, can I eat it?
I love you most of all, my favourite vegetable Merlin: hmmmm, no tuna!
If you brought a big brown bag of them all Will 3 baskets do?
I'd jump up and down and hope you toss me a carrot Tara: they said carrot not peppers!
I'm gonna eat my, my vegetables Jeeves: tomatoes are fruits, not veggies.
I'm gonna love my, my vegetables Kadootje: no idea what this is, but it's nice to rub my head against.
I love you most of all Black peppers in the Victorian greenhouse
my favourite vegetable. Tara's favourite veg.
We know that you'll feel better
When you send us in your letter (a comment will do nicely too)
And tell us the name of your,
Your favourite vegetable!

How cute, YE! I never heard that song before even though being a huge BB fan back in the day. Your sweet pets always steal the show, but your veggies look great too. :-)

I've never heard this BB song, either! Your guys and dolls look especially cute this morning (afternoon). A favorite vegetable? I love potatoes, but roasted red peppers are a close second. gail

I do have a big smile on my face YE. It will last the whole day through probably because I love my vegetables. Your kitties and Tara are great entertainers. Where in the world did you find this obscure song by the Beach Boys?? My favorite veggie is .... Hmmmm I thought if I typed that sentence I would be able to come up with something. I just like them all. Just yesteday I made a big pot of veggie soup. It has peas, corn, greenbeans, cabbage, potatoes, lima beans and tomatoes. So..that says it all.

VP said...

Aha one of the lost songs from Smile! We saw Brian Wilson perform this a couple of years ago!

My favourite vegetable? That's too hard a question, because it changes with the seasons...

...so at the moment it's parsnips, especially roasted ones. Yum :p

The song is lovely, and quite obviously, never ever heard it before - When the western bloggers haven't heard it, I never stood any chance.
My favorite veggie...well, I love them all, but if taste is the criteria, ask any finger chips buff, it has to be Potato.

nancybond said...

I love my vegetables, too! (Though I've never heard the song, either.) I'd be hard pressed to pick only one favourite veggie, but I do love broccoli...and brussels sprouts... and sweet potatoes...and squash! The list is endless. :)

Broad Beans. Absolutely no question at all.
It is jolly odd that song but it does include a number of interesting ways to sing vegetable

That was fun. I'm drooling - that black pepper is so gorgeous and looks delicious! If peppers are a veg, then my favorite is them, but only fully ripened. If not, then my favorite veggie is finocchio. I love that anise taste. Clearly, you've got this veggie growing thing down.

HappyMouffetard said...

Ah, veg, musiclas, cats (and Tara, of course!) - what more could you ask from a blog post?

Favourite veg? Fresh sweetcorn.

Njut i din trädgård said...

Tomato tomato tomato

Thanks for a nice time here!

Arabella Sock said...

Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes and occasionally celeriac!

Thanks for the Beach Boys song - I must have heard it years ago as it stirred a vague memory at the back of my mind.

Cheryl said...

Love the post, such fun Yolanda....

Tara has grown....what a sweet dog she is.....

My favourite veg hmmmmmn that is difficult because I love them all but if I had to choose, it would be broccoli........

Cheryl said...

Meant to say stir fried with sesame seeds and a dash of soy sauce....delicious......

Margo said...

Leuk, Tara weer eens in beeld :)

Cindy Garber Iverson said...

I just love the Beach Boys! This has definitely brought a smile to my face today.

Matron said...

Matron thoroughly approves of your veggie blog with cats and dogs! Amazing you managed to get them to sit still for so long to have their photos taken!

Flighty said...

What a fun post! Goodness me I haven't heard that Beach Boys track in many years.
I don't really have a favourite vegetable as I happily eat almost all of them. I have to say though that eating my own sweetcorn this year was a real highlight! xx

stadtgarten said...

I never heard this song before.... - what a lovely post!
I always adore your kitchen garden and the lots of fruit and vegetables you are harvesting there.
My favorite vegetable are brussels sprouts - unfortunately my husband hates them, so I don't eat them very often.
Groetjes, Monika

Chookie said...

Another person who has never heard this song before.

My favourite vegetable? Gosh, it would be easier to find one I didn't like.

*thinking*

Nope, can't think of any I dislike either! I love them all!

Karen - An Artist's Garden said...

Lol :)

My how Tara has grown. I love those black peppers - do they taste good?

My favourite veg this year has been broad beans picked nice and small

garden girl said...

What fun Yolanda! Tara has something in common with our dog George - green beans are his favorite too. I'm not sure I could narrow it down to a favorite. I love green beans too, but then there are peas, broccoli, brussels sprouts, beets, turnips, radishes, cauliflower, carrots, Kuri Squash. . . nope, I just can't choose one favorite - I love them all!
