Obamas Unveil Vegetable Garden Plan for South Lawn – Sweet!

March 19, 2009

Maybe it was the kooky hippie foodies or maybe they were going to do it all along.  Either way, the Obama’s have dug in for the garden!

From the New York Times:

While the organic garden will provide food for the first family’s meals and formal dinners, its most important role, Mrs. Obama said, will be to educate children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at time when obesity has become a national concern.

Finally something good in the news.  The First Lady goes on to say:

My hope is that through children, they will begin to educate their families and that will, in turn, begin to educate our communities.  You can begin in your own cupboard by eliminating processed food, trying to cook a meal a little more often, trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables…

I can hear the Monsanto and ADM lawyers kicking their Aston Martins into high gear as they prepare to lobby for an apology to theFood Processing industry.  Great move Michelle!   Now tell Barry to fire Geithner, sue AIG, draw down in Iraq and build the damn smart power grid already.

Here’s the plan so far…

They must love spinach...
