The White House Victory Garden

By Kay Steiger

Michelle Obama talks about the White House garden. It’s pretty adorable. She says, “If the president of the United States can find time to sit down with his family and have dinner, hopefully more families will find time to do the same thing.” Still, I noticed that the First Family is doing little of the gardening themselves. One thing that I think people often forget is that a full garden (growing a few herbs on a window doesn’t take much) can take some serious time. For many who enjoy it it’s not a problem to devote many hours to the garden, but for those that work double shifts or have a long commute, it can be a little more challenging.

    i think we can find it in our hearts to forgive the president of the united states and his wife, if they dont have the time to do most of the gardening themselves.

    i think it is amazing that with two little girls, a dog , a mother -in-law and a country to worry about, that they even have the “intention” of a garden, and sit down to eat their vegetables together every night!

    it is the right kind of hedge fund to teach the first daughters about!!!! hurray!!!!
