The first lady needs to get back from HI and take care of her

garden in DC. I guess it her MINO (Micheal's in name only)

Obama's should preach what they practice

in that they have this nice garden of organic produce and make sure everyone in the white house eats organic. But then they force the GMO crap on the population by appointing criminals from Monsatan to run the FDA, and EPA.

Obama promised in 2007 he would stop forcing GMO crap on Americans. I knew he was full of crap from the get go!

The King and Queen can eat right but not their peasant subjects!

Watch the squirrels in your area.

My two pecan trees in my yard were LOADED with pecans. More than I have ever seen before. My squirrel population is about the same from previous years. They have taken off EVERY nut in a 3 or 4 day period. They were still in the green casing, but ready enough for the squirrels. My driveway is broken pecan shells everywhere. The back of my pick-up has broken shells all in it. I can walk outside and hear them falling on my truck and fall over me when I walk under the trees.

I think this means a really cold winter for Central Texas or something is going on in their food chain to make them eat this voraciously. They aren't digging and hiding them much. Just eating them like they are starving and they look healthy.

Same Thing Could Happen With Us

When I visited the area, the first thing I noticed was that all the squirrels were asking for handouts.

I imagine the public may well resort to similar looting when winter approaches and food is short.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

know what takes care of pesky

know what takes care of pesky varmints? Guns. To bad the obamas don't want anyone to have one. Squirrelocolypse is coming.

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.

The squirrels don't know

The squirrels don't know about no government shutdown!

Get your fat, organic a-s-s out there Michele and harvest OUR vegetables that you pissed hundreds of thousands of OUR dollars on!

Up the First Ladies pant leg was confronted with GMO. Genetically modified organ.

You mean it's NOT Michelle's garden?

If she were a savvy politician she would be out there in mud caked shoes dripping with sweat and the press would have a hey day showing how much pain mean ole Congress is causing her.

Or she could take the high road and show Americans that when the going gets tough you get out there and getter done.

....actually think that would inspire me even if it was Mrs. Obama.

An untended garden going to seed

How not ironic.

Maybe they'll save the seeds for next year

then they can have a FREE garden.

7/24 live cam. I kid you not


If you read that blog

This garden is probably in the $100,000 range before paid staff.

And the "Brown House" claims they did it all with $200 in seeds.

I used to love the D.C./Northern Virgina area a lot when I lived there. Made a lot of money. Great food. And It felt classy to explore.

My favorite was to go to the Jefferson Memorial dome at 5:30 6 am and just meditate quietly. Let the inscriptions on the walls and ceilings sink in.

Adams Morgan. Bethesda, Rockville, Georgetown, Falls Church, Reston, Fairfax the list of good memories is long.

This whole white house garden affair...

...reminds me of Marie Antoinette playing peasant at Versailles.

Let them eat leafy dark green vegetables! :-/

How much does it take to keep

her little hobby garden growing? I sure hope it's not all for show and someone actually gets to eat the food and it does not all go to waste.


no chipmunks?

Yea, squirrels will eat stuff

Yea, squirrels will eat stuff you grow. Around me though, its only gotten bad in the last few years that they come after everything.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
