Michelle Obama is planting an organic vegetable garden on the South Lawn, the first time this has been done since Eleanor Roosevelt’s Victory garden during WWII. While her rationale of educating “children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at a time when obesity and diabetes have become a national concern” is not on the top of my list of national concerns, it’s still a good idea. [HT to Chicken Tracks.]
When the economy truly tanks, we should all have alternate sources of food.
In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil,
but a foolish man devours all he has.
Proverbs 21:20 (NIV)
[HT to Queen of Pith]
