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.

will President Trump keep the White House vegetable garden?

Michelle Obama is hoping that the White House vegetable garden will be preserved and used by all future presidents. She's added a stone plaque with the inscription, “WHITE HOUSE KITCHEN GARDEN established in 2009 by First Lady Michelle Obama with the hope of growing a healthier nation for our children.”

Also, she's "pressing the president to pass an executive order to maintain the garden after they leave the White House,” a source told The Post. The garden has grown from 1,100 square feet to 2,800 square feet under her leadership.

I think Mr Trump and Melania aren't vegetable gardeners. The rumor is they may be more interested in using the South Lawn for golf. Time will tell. Surely everyone doesn't need to have the same interests.

Good luck, Michelle. I'm terrified.

Hasn't the White House pool come and gone, maybe more than once?

Related topic, although I can see redecorating the White House due to wear and tear, esp. in the public tours areas, I have never understood spending a lot of money redecorating for its own sake for just four years. That was (peace, I'm a Democrat) before I saw the horrible decorating mess Michelle had made of some of the official rooms. Is this rug nor horrible or what, and some rooms are worse:
