Garden Politics

The Obamas Plant an Organic Veggie Garden!!!

One of the blogs that I follow mentioned today that Michelle Obama is planting an organic vegetable garden at the White House with the help of an elementary school class to supply the family with fresh veggies and to teach the importance of growing and eating locally (with minimal chemicals). This is also a response to the childhood obesity problem. The whole family, including the President will help out in the garden. Now if only we could get Mr. Harper to plant an organic vegetable garden at 24 Sussex. Likely? I think not.. we'd have better luck asking him to start a horse ranch.

Although a petition on this matter might actually get somewhere.. if the US is doing it, we tend to go with the flow.

I guess to be fair......gardening isn't for everybody. But they're missing out!
