  • "In Defense of Food" author Michael Pollan is going to get his wish! Michelle Obama indicates there will be a White House garden:

    "We want to use it as a point of education, to talk about health and how delicious it is to eat fresh food, and how you can take that food and make it part of a healthy diet. You know, the tomato that's from your garden tastes very different from one that isn't. And peas—what is it like to eat peas in season? So we want the White House to be a place of education and awareness. And hopefully kids will be interested because there are kids living here."

    That’s cool. We try to at least grow peppers and tomatoes every year(even though last year, the deer always got to the tomatoes before we did).

    And in the winter, there’s the AeroGarden🙂

    @Chriggy – Sweet, Somma and I are talking about doing a garden. I haven’t seen any deer in our neighborhood, so we might be able to keep our tomatoes!

    I like Larry’s cherry tomatoes on the deck. I’m thinking about putting them on the stairs.

    @Katie – Nice! Thanks for the tip. I am impressed with the inventory of veggies the garden is going to produce!
