White House Organic Garden: I think this is cool. First Lady, Michelle Obama is planting an organic garden on the White House lawn. The Washington Post reports: "The 1,100-square-foot garden will include 55 kinds of vegetables, including peppers, spinach....There will also be berries, herbs and two hives for honey that will be tended by a White House carpenter who is also a beekeeper. The chefs will use the produce to feed the first family, as well as for state dinners and other official events.
