Tom Nelson has a pretty funny set of articles on the White House vegetable garden. Michelle Obama told a group of kids it only cost $180. Tom links a variety of videos and articles showing:
- Five NPS workers digging in the garden, with a tractor, tiller, and hand tools.
- A job posting for a college grad for the position of "White House Farmer."
- A job description of an assistant White House chef who currently overseas the garden.
Farming is cheap if the serfs (ie US citizens) provide all the labor and equipment for free.
