Garden Politics

First - as far as we know - there was the San Francisco Victory Garden. Then the White House planted their own garden. Next Maria Shriver planted a garden in the California state capitol. Not to be outdone, Queen Elizabeth got in the act. Now, it appears UK Prime Minister Brown has also joined the party.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the sudden interest in heads of lettuce by heads of state? What politician will be next? Will 'gardener' soon be a required resume item for political leaders?

i love it. the more leaders lead, the more others may get to thinking about how their food is grown, processed, etc.

In Baltimore, Mayor Sheila Dixon had to jump on the trend as well. She planted an all container vegetable garden at the capital building in the city.
