“Leader of the Free World” Weeds White House Garden


Michelle said, Barach will do his share of weeding…being “Leader of the Free World” will not excuse him.  Well, that thought makes me wonder what international or economic garden he won’t have time to weed.  It’s refreshing to have Michelle’s down-home- kitchen-table-family-style ideas and attitudes.  However, her husband is “The Leader of the Free World”and knowing that he was cleaning out industry’s goniffs would make me feel better quickly.  Love ya’, Michelle, but this is not one of your better ideas. 

The White House vegetable garden got off to a slow start.   Reported as Michelle’s idea originally…now the “eat healthy food, curb obesity and diseases due to poor diet”1,100 square foot vegetable garden is attributed to her CA chef.  Does it matter whose idea it is if it sets a good example that catches on with the public?

What’s gonna’ grow?  Whose gonna’ take care of it?  How many people will it feed?  How much will it cost to begin, maintain and grass-cover it in winter?  We’ll find out – slowly.

One source reports basil, hot peppers, collard greens, spinach and berries.  Another claims we’re gonna’ see mint, corn, squash and beans.  And both sources report, there will be two bee hives for the harvesting of honey.

OK!  How much of how many things can bee grown in 1,100 square feet of garden?  Can this garden accommodate the banquet dining demands and State Dinner eating habits of a formal White House?  However, I’m getting used to the idea – slowly.

Till the idea sinks in, I wonder…How many bee keepers does it take to keep bees?  Whose gonna’ weed the weeds?  Maybe this small plot of land is intended to feed only the first family and will not require hiring additional “farmers” and bee keepers…

…and, maybe I’ll get used to it slowly.  Stocks fell yesterday, but they’re up for the week.  Investors must be slowly weeding through the dividend-paying stocks and buying. 

If we walk up the mountain three steps and only fall back two: One step forward is a very needed stock market gain.  Slowly…we’ll see other dividends.  The multi-tasking President will pull out the weeds in the Stimulus Plan, AIG/Fannie/Freddie bailouts and probably, be a good hubby, pull the weeds in Michelle’s White House garden.  Good marriages grow slowly.  Improvements  begin slowly.  Getting used to being “Leader of the Free World” sinks in slowly.  Everything is “slowly” this year.
