This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

video - white house veggie garden



This is a great video! It shows a time-lapse of a man digging, planting and harvesting a new vegetable garden in his front yard (a small "white house"). An analogy is made to THE white house. He makes a lovely garden with great beds and rows of veggies. Tomatoes and radish are harvested. Watch it if you like to watch a garden grow. Its also a nice "how-to" if you want to start your own garden.

This is just what I often imagine when I see a nice sunny green lawn! Politics aside, vegetable gardening is just a very rewarding pastime.

I absolutely Love it!!!! I hope the White house lawns are used for this purpose!

I live in London, England, where there is serious overpopulation, but still quite a bit of central land is set aside for allotments. This is a hangover of a "Dig for Victory" project set up to encourage people to grow vegetables during the wars.

Now though it is again becoming a very popular things to do - there is a 4 year waiting list for most city allotments, and some have even completely closed their waiting lists as they are too long!

Exceptional! I'd heard about a campaign for replacing the whitehouse lawn with a veggie garden - what does skippy think, is it a possibility?
