Royal Garden Blues - Ruth Digs

I'm Putting all My Eggs in One Basket, Garden in the Rain, various Rose songs, Diggin' My Potatoes, Green Onions, Lettuce Fall in Love, Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens, are just some of the songs new allotment holder Ruth Lambert (pictured left) might now be singing. Seems as though the green fingered Ruth has acquired "Just a plot, not a lot of land" and will be living The Good Life.
Any more suggestions of songs she may be singing?
Lance.
PS: Trombonist, pianist, Brian Chester has half of an adjoining plot so who knows but that there may be a few jam sessions taking place on this stretch of The Good Earth!

With Ruth's Skylark overhead I think that would be jazz paradise!

No doubt Ruth will receive the traditional Easter
greeting from fellow allotment owners - "Are ya tatties in yet, pet?"

PS. Mine are.

The 'jam sessions' with adjoining allotment owner, trombonist Brian Chester, will probably be of the Rhubarb Conserve variety - and don't forget to add a little pectin, Ruth, otherwise it'll dribble off your toast
