Farm soundtrack

"We got the beets, we got the beets, we got the beets..."

Do you ever get songs in your head when you pass certain places?  Like one of those automated audio tour guides where you have a little device and headphones and when you pass certain “triggers”, a voice comes telling you about that point in the tour.  It’s like that here on the farm. There are “triggers” everywhere that trip the wire for the farm soundtrack.  

Like the romaine lettuce field: “She gets high, she gets high, she gets high…romaine.”  Or the lacinato kale: “Lacinato, why don’t you come to your senses, you’ve been out riding fences for so long.” Or the “box bottoms” that we use in all our produce boxes: “Whoa box bottoms (bam-ba-lam), Whoa box bottoms (bam-ba-lam).”  Or, of course, “We got the beets!” It’s just like the automated audio tour guide, but one I follow 75 times a day.
