Imitad a la Señora de Obama, porque os va la vida en ello

Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial el gobierno norteamericano instó a los ciudadanos a plantar huertos para autoabastecerse de comida.  Los llamaban Victory Gardens y cumplieron en aliviar una situación de carencia.  En la Casa Blanca y para dar ejemplo, plantaron uno de estos Huertos de la Victoria, y el Presidente y su casa consumían los productos.

Michele Obama hoy viernes empieza a plantar uno, para dar ejemplo también de austeridad y laboriosidad.  Hasta van a poner colmenas. Si esto no os enseña que estamos en una crisis formidable, es porque no quereis verlo.  Sí, ya se que el que vive en un apartamento no puede cultivar más que una maceta con albahaca o algo así.  Lo que debe hacer el que viva en la ciudad, y pueda hacerlo, es vender mientras tiene valor y mudarse de apuro al campo.

Así lucirá

Michelle Obama To Plant Vegetable Garden at White House
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/19/dining/19garden-web.html?hp

On Friday, Michelle Obama will begin digging up a patch of White House lawn to plant a vegetable garden, the first since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden in World War II. There will be no beets (the president doesn’t like them).
Whether there would be a White House garden has been more than a matter of landscaping. It’s taken on political and environmental symbolism as the Obamas have been lobbied for months by advocates who believe that growing more food locally could lead to healthier eating and lessen reliance on huge industrial farms that use more oil for transportation and chemicals for fertilizer.

In the meantime, promoting healthful eating has become an important part of Mrs. Obama’s agenda.
“The power of Michelle Obama and the garden can create a very powerful message about eating healthy and more delicious food,” said Dan Barber, an owner of Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, N.Y., an organic restaurant that grows many of its own ingredients. “I don’t think it’s a stretch to say it could translate into real change.”

The Clintons grew some vegetables in pots on the roof of the White House. But the Obamas’ garden will have 55 varieties of vegetables — from a wish list of the kitchen staff — grown from organic seedlings started at the executive mansion’s greenhouses.

The Obamas will feed their love of Mexican food with cilantro, tomatilloes 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 who is a beekeeper will tend two hives for honey.
