After months of badgering from people like me the Obamas have announced that they are planting a victory vegetable garden at the White House! Yay! Naturally Obama Foodorama got the scoop earlier, but today it became official. Maybe they were waiting until March 21 to announce, but all that digging was getting harder to hide.
It seems like there's a lot of buzz about vegetable gardens this year, what with the economic implosion and the growing support for local, organic foods. After years of growing only flowers and herbs on our rooftop I am actually considering growing lettuce and strawberries up there as well this year.
