3015655286_a2dcbbffefWhile this is not normally any sort of political forum,  even the world of vegetable gardening is not immune to politics.   Today,  First Lady Michelle Obama will break ground on the first vegetable garden at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt’s Victory Garden.  But as this blueprint indicates, there will be no tomatoes.  The First Lady says “A real delicious heirloom tomato is one of the sweetest things that you’ll ever eat…  and my children know the difference”   So why not grow some, eh?



 So much for re-election.  Forget the AIG mis-calculation, will not be endorsing the 2012 Obama ticket until this wrong is righted.  If then.

And there’s too much lettuce in the plan, too.

Seriously, though, we admire the commitment to local produce and healthier eating.  We just feel that commitment should include tomatoes.
