Wahoo! I just emailed that link to the article to all the Women of the Dirt!
Whose Seeding and Singing to Seedlings (Part Deux)
That just brings tears to my eyes. Their values are a dream come true.
Seriously I wouldn't be surprised if truckloads of heirloom seeds start arriving at the White House. I hope they publish everything about the garden. I wonder if the First Lady is allowed to join DG? Probably not. Bummer.
It's a very formal design but I guess it has to be being at the White house.
If she did join we very well might not know it. I'm just excited that something I care about and voiced my opinion on is happening. Like someone in power cares. Lol
Duchess I was thinking the same thing about DG. She's probably been a DG member for a long time and we will never know it ^_^
Probably everyone here is someone excrutiatingly famous, posting in deep disguise.
well, it's fun to think about anyways....
Lol. Maybe. But she said she'd never had a garden before.
Strike that. Never had a veggie garden before.

Speaking of singing to seedlings, last night I found myself singing to my little Walla Walla onions, "Hey Mr Tallyman, tally me some onions, spring is come and you wanna grow strong! Day O! Day ay ay O, spring is come and you wanna grow strong!"
I think it worked, they look fatter today.
I have an artichoke!!!! It's not sprouting, it's erupting out of the pot like a volcano. Very cool.
I killed my three littlest stupice tomato plants when the sun came out a bit too long before I noticed I needed to vent the greenhouse. Phooey.
But I have a Zingaro dahlia sprouting in a pot in there! Not erupting, just sprouting.
Dahlias are casual but tireless sprouters. I have the artichokes in the same tray as the toms but no toms yet :( It's going to be cloudy for the next week so I will bring the tom pots in to the indoor growop tomorrow. Now of course I shall have to decide where to put Arnold the erupting artichoke. Perhaps with bulbous things, as I think Arnold might intimidate some of the smaller sprouts.
