Ida!

My teeny niece was born last Thursday down in Chicago and I was lucky enough to attend the birth.

In honor of my new niece, who bears a potato’s name: Ida. (Ida Rose is the varietal).
AND
In honor of our on-going sweet potato harvest….
AND
In honor of my lack of sleep and missed days of work due to attending said birth…

In lieu of a proper newsletter, I  share with you the lyrics of one of my favorite children’s songs by Metamora: Click YouTube link to hear the song.

Little Potato

You’re my little potato, you’re my little potato,
You’re my little potato, they dug you up,
You come from underground,

The world is big, so big, so very big
To you, it’s new, it’s new to you.

You’re my little potato, you’re my little potato,
You’re my little potato, they dug you up,
You come from underground.

Let’s talk about root crops (they dug you up),
And lamb chops (they chew on you),
And things to eat…like apples
and cheese and ‘nanas and cream,
Jellies and butter,
it’s late at night, I hope this little bottle helps you go to sleep.

They must have grown you wild,
you make a grown man a child,
I’ll go and play in the mud
to be with you my spud (potato).
When you came out looking red as a beet,
You had wrinkles on the bottoms of your feet!

Oh, you are so sweet potato!
You’re my sweet potato,
you’re my sweet potato, dug you up
You come from underground.

You smile, a smile, a little smile
The world is small, so small, it’s very small

You’re my little potato, you’re my little potato,
you’re my little potato, they dug you up,
You come from underground
