The White House made a splash yesterday by announcing it’s plans to grow a victory garden on the White House lawn!

If you surf the garden blogosphere you would know that there has been a web based campaign for this very outcome for a couple of years now!

Namely, the Eat the View effort over at the Kitchen Gardeners International site, by Roger Doiron!

Its exciting times and I could NOT be more proud of our first family. This will really be a beautiful beginning to an even more widespread movement to grow your own!
