From my anthropology classes, we learned how Native Americans often buried fish in their gardens as a fertility ritual. Inadvertently, they fertilized their crops.
I'm looking for a type of fish based fertilizer used in Greece, North Africa, somewhere with high populations of olive trees...
Or, is it a red herring?
We used to catch herring by the bucket load when they were running in the Potomac. Used to shovel some under the rose bushes for fertilizer. Herring are a schooling fish. Jim Herring is a schooled guitarist. Widespread Panic has a recent album, "Dirty Side Down." Roots are the dirty side down of a tree. But, I can't make olive fit, unless Jimmy Herring has an olive wood guitar?
Keller Williams' new album is called Bass and hosts a show called Keller's Cellar, which might get us to roots. Can anyone more familiar with his work connect him to olives somehow?
I was looking at Keller too, he attended Virginia Wesleyan College whose mascot is the marlin and it is a United Methodist college. This would fit the former fish and "United" could be the harmony part.
Not really sure about the second part of the clue.
What happens if my tee shot lands on a bird's back and he carries it out of bounds but then is attacked by a larger bird who grabs the ball and drops it in the hole? Is that still a hole in one? 'Cause that's how I'm gonna play it.
I don't really know where to go with this but "former fish of harmony" makes me immediately think of the Fishtones from Eureeka's Castle. Is there someone connected to that show who is in a musical group now?
Going with the word 'bass' for fish, as said before, but pronounced differently, added with nectar, bassnectar? Also, going with the idea of a member being part of a bigger group before, Justin Timberlake? Olive tree, timber, idk. Maybe you guys can take these ideas and make better connections. I'm just throwing ideas around.
