10 Great Gardening Songs


Composting Prompt Ingredients – Once a Week Prompt
Everyone loves a creative push, a gentle nudge, and what better to sate that passion than a writing prompt? Something to stir the imagination, or to inspire the mind, tickle the fancy, provide a bit of a distraction, and maybe provide some entertainment along the way too?

But why, Composting’ Prompt’ Ingredients? What’s that all about then? The secret to a great ‘compost’ heap is the ingredients. It’s a bit like a dash of this, a splash of that and a few drops of something else, as a witch might say when stirring up a cauldron concoction.

Composting isn’t rocket science but gentle crafting and building your skills up, and eventually, you’ll find a balance that is right for you in your quest for gardener’s gold! Composting is all about knowing what you can add and the right ingredients.

So if we were to say ‘composting prompt ingredients’, that is all about seeing what works with writing. Therefore, your ingredients might be prompt, inspiration, creativity, imagination, opinion, suggestion, provocation, controversy, moments, chance encounters, experiences, uniqueness, personality, individuality, perspective, reading, etc.

Here it’s a case of teasing your curiosity out with a few choice distractions, and all the Earthly Comfort prompts are designed to allow your interpretation to create for you, allowing your mind to run wild. Be they questions to make you think or puzzles to make you wonder, or snippets of wordery to bring out your artisan crafts to bump and grind their way along with the keyboard – it’s all up to you and how you decide to express yourself and above all, it’s about having some fun!.


So, should you wish, please feel free to drop a comment below, or if teased and tempted enough, then create your post and please remember to link your blog to mine with a pingback; otherwise, I’ll never see your response.

Pingbacks are easy to do – Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of the prompt post) and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s prompt.

Season One – Game 3
10 Great Gardening Songs

I listen to music when gardening, usually on the radio and often l find my mind drifting off and wondering what would make for a terrific gardening playlist.

There are many benefits to listening to music when out in the garden; l mean, listening to music anywhere is brilliant as it is – but music compliments the gardening experience – so to the task!

Put your thinking caps on and come up with some crackers – l can think of several – however, l’ll not be giving ideas away … you are all creative geniuses in this field anyway – so let’s see your listings below!

But, if l was to list something then perhaps ‘Here comes the sun’, by the Beatles and Mr Blue Sky by Electric Sky Orchestra might make an appearance you know?

So there we go folks!

Let me know your views and observations below or should you wish to, create a post and ask your own readers , just remember to keep me in the loop with a ping back.

Thanks for Reading, see you next Saturday!

  1. I don’t ‘garden’ or compost but the first song that popped into my mind was “I never promised you a rose garden” then “The green green grass of home” then my mind jumped inexplicably to “Follow the drinking gourd” and then to “Strange Fruit” and now I’m off to listen to some gospel music. Oh but wait, how about “Lavender Blue” and talking about trees how about “Whiskey Lullaby”? Don’t think any of these are what you mean but you know me and my pinball brain…Plus I’ve only just got up and I’m working on my second cup of coffee…(And ‘Barbara Allen’ next jumped to mind – Oy, stop this!)

  2. Hey Rory, thanks so much for the mention!

    Well, this game’s been fun, as it has included other family members, too. Here are our selections in reference to gardening.

    Mine: (I admit I had to have help with some of these titles and artists. I can remember a tune forever, but don’t seem to retain the titles and artists – similar situation with books.)
    The Garden Song, John Denver
    Gardening Song, CoComelon Nursery Rhymes (so fun! 😊)
    Garden, DuaLipa
    Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, Pink Floyd
    Trip Around the Sun, Kenny Chesney
    Sunshine, One Republic
    Their Ain’t No Sunshine When You’re Gone, Bill Withers

    Bud:
    I Heard it Through the Grapevine, the Beatles
    Bed of Roses, Bon Jovi
    Sowing the Seeds of Love, Tears For Fears
    Octopus’s Garden, the Beatles

    Oliver:
    Gardening At Night, REM (He was so in to this one, he was actually bouncing up and down on his perch as he sang at full volume! 😊)

    My Son:
    In-A-Godda-Da-Vida, Iron Butterfly (The original song title was In the Garden of Eden)
    He said he would send the clip of a rare black and white recording from the 70’s when he finds it. If so, I’ll forward it on for you.

    1. Hey Betty – excellent and kudos to you all for this marvelous line up and some real cracklers in here too.

      I am like you, l can remember a tune, but often stumble on the title.

      There Ain’t No Sunshine When You’re Gone and I Heard it Through the Grapevine, would be awesome digging songs 🙂

      1. I think it was because and looking at my mother of all those years ago, was that August and September were quite warm and humid [unlike forty years on when the warmth and humidity arrive much earlier] and she didn’t hydrate enough through the longer days.

        We were used to different heats in the later 70’s and early 80’s here in the UK as we had experienced summers from Australia and humidities in Malaysia.

        Mum was always telling us about the English summers being milder, but when she arrived back, she then started to suffer from more migraines.
