Bee the change
Whatever the missteps so far, the Obama White House has proven itself a leader in at least one very positive way: reminding the nation that there should be beehive in every backyard and showing the way.
Obamas to Plant Vegetable Garden at White House
"The Obamas will feed their love of Mexican food with cilantro, tomatillos and hot peppers. Lettuces will include red romaine, green oak leaf, butterhead, red leaf and galactic. There will be spinach, chard, collards and black kale. For desserts, there will be a patch of berries. And herbs will include some more unusual varieties, like anise hyssop and Thai basil. A White House carpenter, Charlie Brandts, who is a beekeeper, will tend two hives for honey."
