White House Kitchen Garden

Here's a bit of interesting news - The new administration is starting a garden on the White House property. The first at the White House since the Roosevelt’s victory garden in World War II. Local elementary school children will be involved in helping out with the project.

"Crops to be planted in the coming weeks on the 1,100-square-foot, L-shaped patch near the fountain on the South Lawn include spinach, broccoli, various lettuces, kale and collard greens, assorted herbs and blueberries, blackberries and raspberries."

I saw that and was so excited. I signed the petition for that and am so happy the Obama's heard our request.
