Smile and go plant something

While browsing through some of my long list of unread DC area foodie blogs drooling over restaurant dishes I can't afford, gourmet recipes that I couldn't hope to recreate and opinions of the finest this that and the other I ran across something that made me laugh, smile, think, dream and cry just a little. I wouldn't say that I'm much of a crier but the I have been known to weep at the occasional sappy romance movie, sob through the whole last 30 minutes of Marley and Me and I'm a sucker for sentient computer yarns like Wall-E and Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. That said it takes a rare moment for something like a gardening history lesson to move me. But a clip featured on metrocurean's blog got me thinking that it really is time to look back to our roots, as imperfect as they are, and make a change for the future. And who better to lead that change than our nations figurehead. Anyway, I'll get away from that soap box before I really go on a rant and just leave you this clip. I hope it makes you smile and then go plant something.

I really enjoyed the video. Sheep on the White House lawn! That would be awesome.
