I love this: Michelle Obama wants to promote eating local, healthy produce and even growing some yourself. And especially in the middle of a recession it's important to find ways to save money while eating healthy. It doesn't cost a lot to start a garden. My balcony garden will cost more than if I had a yard to dig into - the price of pots and potting soil really adds up. Still, it's a worthwhile investment and I'm sure I'll get much more out of it than I put in.
I wonder if this effort will spawn the kind of response that Eleanor Roosevelt's victory garden did during WWII.
