I knew the big White House edible garden news was breaking soon and should have figured they'd pick the first day of spring. I was so wrapped up though in in the Washington Home & Garden Show preparation and spending 50 hours there over this weekend, I hardly had a chance to sit back and digest it all before the press calls and emails started to stream in. I'll be digging out from under those for next few days. Meanwhile, I wish the First Family much fun digging in to their first garden.
