The Importance of Vegetable Gardening
The Tasteful Garden
Vegetable Gardening is such an important part of our lives and it used to mean survival for families who lived before us. Without the food they grew in the garden and the few animals they kept, they literally would have starved to death. Of course we don’t starve in this country anymore because we don’t have a garden but it does make you think about the hardship families went through in seasons with poor crop results.
There is now a vegetable garden at the White House
Wow, that is just the coolest thing that there is now a vegetable garden at the White House. We are so proud of Michelle and thrilled with the decision to plant a White House vegetable garden. Alice Waters and so many other wonderful gardening folks got this idea started many years ago and this year just became the perfect year for it. We are offering to donate tomato plants, we will keep you updated if that happens!
There is just nothing better for the American Family than the great example they are setting. Eating vegetables from your own yard, community garden, or farmer’s market is all about good health, happy family activity, and respect for the planet too! Never mind that it is a great thing to share with your neighbors.
