Michelle Obama's White House garden: soil tested, all safe

| 1 Comment

I checked out claims floating in the blogosphere that the White House garden has soil problems; the office of First Lady Michelle Obama said the food is "completely safe." The garden is a signature project of Mrs. Obama, handled by Chicagoan Sam Kass, an assistant White House chef who also helps with food education programs.

Has the White House ever considered a greenhouse?
I live in Colorado and I've had my greenhouse for 1 year. I had tomatos until December of 2008!! I'm sure I will have the same this year. I bought mine thru, it's perfect for all year gardening.
