Researchers have known for years that listening to music can lead to some great health benefits. And it's not just for people...even your plants can get something out of it. Fact is, experiments have shown that plants grow faster when music, especially lower-frequency music, is played over fields or into greenhouses. But don't take our word for it...try talking to Maria Reidelbach from Kerhonkson, New York. She never intended to be interested in growing vegetables. Her expertise is actually in mini-golf! So much so, that she wrote the definitive book on mini-golf courses across America. But then she came up with the idea to save her friend's family farm by using her knowledge to create a totally different kind of roadside attraction. Aside from showing her visitors a good time, she's also introducing them to foods they've never tried before, as well as the importance of local agriculture. By the way, that huge gnome that you see in the video has a name - it's Gnome Chomsky. He was built as a tribute to Frieda Carter, who designed the first mini-golf course in 1928 on Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. Visit Maria's web site, Hoopla.org. Read an article about him entitled, Kerhonkson gnome pursues Guinness record.PEEVE DE JOUR: the older i get, the dumber i get. thought i was supposed to get smarter?
