Today is the day -- they're breaking ground for the White House vegetable garden. While the cause is noble -- it's 'green', economically smart -- what everyone really wants to know is what will be in it?
Here you go: Anise, Thai basil, berries, spinach, chard, black kale, arugula, lettuce (red romaine, green oak leaf, butter-head, red leaf, galactic), rhubarb, kale, hives for honey, hot peppers, cilantro, onions, shell peas, shallots, oregano, garlic, dill, parsley, chives, rosemary, sage and thyme.
And they're composting at the White House!
There will be 55 varieties of vegetables in all -- planted from organic seeds costing $200 (and that includes the mulch).
