Canned Goods

My friend Wendy has begun a lovely little blog called "Little Farm in the City" about her experience so many things. I encourage you to visit.

Her recent post is on ratatouille, and how it seems to her like eating summer. Her writing reminded me of a song by Greg Brown called Canned Goods. It really is a beautiful and evocative song.

Peaches on the shelf 
Potatoes in the bin
Supper's ready, everybody come on in
Taste a little of the summer, 
Taste a little of the summer, 
You can taste a little of the summer 
my grandma's put it all in jars. 

Here is a very passable rendition I found on You Tube. You can also listen to Greg himself doing it on Last FM or

Love the song! Thank,Dave. Just one down side, I tend to get songs stuck in my head for weeks on end. So now everytime I go to the basement and see the jars, I'm goign to have song in my head... :)
