Few people know this about me, but I have a mad crush on TJ. Thomas Jefferson. (My poor husband knows this oddity of mine.)
The tall, red headed, renaissance man does it for me, and is relative to this gardening blog because TJ was a mad gardener and liked to spread the word of gardening.
I'm rather pleased that his gardens in Monticello were recreated:
and I was lucky enough to get to visit them during a visit to Virginia last year. An actual working garden, at Monticello and at the White House now, YES!
Check out: Obama Foodarama article: (http://obamafoodorama.blogspot.com/2009/04/michelle-obama-leads-white-house.html)
to learn more about the awesomeness that is TJ, the new White House Garden and gardening food.
The Monticello site sells seeds from the Monticello gardens, so you can feel closer to TJ... I mean history!
