Life in the day of a garden

This musical is a great resource for class gardening projects. It describes a day in the life of 18th gardener, Thomas Fairchild.  
At dawn Fairchild and his young apprentices are digging alongside Minibeasts who are busy recycling organic waste to fatten up vegetables for the cooking pot! Spud, a tough potato, escapes to hide among the tropical plants in the hothouse! He boasts to these exotic beauties that his sweet potato ancestors also came from South American jungles! 
Meanwhile there is great excitement in the flowerbed where Fairchild's experiment in cross-pollination has resulted in  producing a brand new species of plant - a cross between a Carnation & Sweet William!
After their hard day's work, the apprentices scrump for apples down by St Paul's. They're looking forward to potato stew and apple pie for supper!
