The Vegetable Music Band*

The Vegetable Music Band is a special band that plays music with fruit and vegetables. In the band, there are five musicians**.

Before every show the musicians buy carrots, potatoes, watermelons and other fruit and vegetables at the market. They wash the fruit and vegetables and make holes in them. This takes them a long time.

At the show, the musicians blow*** into the holes in the fruit and vegetables. That is how they make music. People from all over the world come to see the show.

After the show, a chef makes soup with the vegetables that the musicians don’t use. The people who come to the show eat the soup together with the musicians.
