gardening on the white house lawn


There is much to love about these Obama people. Vegetable gardening on the White House lawn? Can we all say Victory Garden! What a perfectly lovely idea. I am thrilled. What better use of public property? I can't think of anything that says self sufficiency and wholesome, healthy food and shut off the fucking TV and get out and do something real quite like an organic vegetable garden. Yay for them.

This was crazy coming on your site and seeing gardening...I just got home from the SF garden show!!!!! Always a fun day, and really inspiring...we are talking of putting in more veggies this year, and a lot of people are. I'm looking forward to spring, as my garden is what boosts my soul! Glad the president's "family" is in agreement!!!!!!

I'm the proud owner of a tiny north-facing balcony. They've got plenty of space at the White House, though, do you think they could send me some veggies? I don't particularly like green beans or brussels sprouts...

Um, you know Bush had a vegetable garden, too, don't you?

Wow, I wish I had that kind of garden space. All I've got room for are two squashes, some peas, a cucumber, some sage, catnip, rosemary and lots of basil (both sweet Italian and gorgeous purple Opal) and five tomato plants, but they end up growing to a height of ten feet. There are also two grape vines and a baby lemon tree. But in my dreams there are rows of corn, leeks, carrots, onions, garlic, fruit trees...
