Thanks for a lovely informative story/reminder that we have been, and can become, gardeners whatever our status in life. Since I'm into history right now, and have toured the White House, the timing is great.
Yup, great subject for today!
Those with historical interest- I really appreciated and you may too, the John Adams series recently out on video. Thomas Jefferson plays a big role, and you also get insight into the life on John Quincy Adams, and Abigail.
Thanks for this excellent article. One of George Washington's five properties, River Farm, is on a bank of the Potomac and is now serving as the headquarters of the American Horticultural Society. That's a place I'd like to visit.
Thanks for a great article, TXTam - so glad to read about it here on DG. I've been watching the "Eat the View" movement on the internet for a while, and think it's a great idea for a garden to replace some of the lawn. Maybe the first family will find gardening as relaxing as we do - with great food as a bonus!
