Michelle Obama: White House garden ‘semi-open to the public,’ can be seen through the fence

Michelle Obama told an audience attending her book signing Tuesday that the White House garden is still “semi-open to the public” because visitors can see it through the fence.

She was promoting her book, “American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America,” released in May 2012.

“[M]y goal in this book is to share the story of the creation of the garden,” Michelle Obama said during the Tuesday morning signing at Washington’s Politics and Prose Bookstore, “because while it is semi-open to the public — because if you visit the White House along the South Lawn, you can see the garden from outside of the White House.”

“But millions of people don’t get a chance to come to Washington. They hear about the garden; they don’t get an opportunity to see it,” she said.

Visitors standing outside the fence of the South Lawn can see portions of the garden at least 100 yards away, though the view can be somewhat obscured by a wall of trees and shrubbery.

The Obama administration stopped allowing visitors to tour the White House grounds beginning on March 9 “due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration.”

I gotta couple questions for Michelle Antoinette.

If that’s her garden, how come we never see her working in it? (Unless it’s a photo-op.) Who is really tending it, and how much are they getting paid? Why weren’t they laid-off from the Sequester? Was anybody on her staff furloughed?

I have a really small garden out back – just four plants. You can kinda see it through the fence too. But I bet I spend more time in my garden than she spends in hers.

No Trespassing!

No Trespassing!

    I’m thinking about starting a “special” indoor garden in the spare bedroom. I could grow medicinal herbs.

    Did Bernadine Dohrn write the book?

    FYI – A machete makes a handy gardening tool, and it’s ideal for home defense too. You can pick one up at Wallyworld (sporting goods) for about 8 bucks.

      LOL! I actually just used a machete to carve a path from my car to the front door. First I get hit in the face with willow branches, then wet lilacs go down my neck…enough already!

    As an avid gardener I can assure you that during the gardening season I am in the garden every day for some amount of time. My guess is that she knows very little about real gardening. Shame on the Fright House!

    • myiq2xu says:

      I garden because I love vine-ripened tomatoes. The store-bought kind just can’t compare for flavor.

      • myiq2xu says:

        I’ve tried growing other stuff but the results have never been worth the effort. I grow pretty good zucchini for my mom but I don’t eat those nasty things.

      • HELENK says:

        someday I hope you get to taste a Jersey tomato. Maybe it is the pollution but none taste better. One thing I miss is the roadside stands selling produce right from the farms

      • swanspirit says:

        Maryland tomatoes are incomparable …….nothing like them !

        • HELENK says:

          maybe you are getting the left over pollution from Jersey and it adds to the taste

    • leslie says:

      Ahh, but did you go out to buy $550 sneakers and hundred dollar shorts to wear while you were planning the garden? Because you know, gardens only respond to well-heeled, well dressed gardeners. It all goes into the creation of a very important garden.

      just sayin’

    really horrible thought

    backtrack and hilary are glad that the story takes the media off the Benghazi story

    The shit has hit the fan in Cleveland:

    But neighbors and police sources were hinting at a life of horror for the women at the hands of captors for almost ten years.

    Elsie Cintron, who lives three houses away, said her daughter once saw a naked woman crawling on her hands and knees in the backyard several years ago and called police. “But they didn’t take it seriously,” she said.

    Another neighbor, Israel Lugo, said he heard pounding on some of the doors of Castro’s house, which had plastic bags on the windows, in November 2011. Lugo said officers knocked on the front door, but no one answered. “They walked to side of the house and then left,” he said.

    Neighbors also said they would see Castro sometimes walking a little girl to a neighborhood playground. And Cintron said she once saw a little girl looking out of the attic window of the house.

    Israel Lugo said he, his family and neighbors called police three times between 2011 and 2012 after seeing disturbing things at the home of Ariel Castro. Lugo lives two houses down from Castro and drew suspicion after neighbors reported seeing naked women on leashes crawling on all fours behind Castro’s house.

    Lugo said about two years ago his sister told him she heard a woman pounding on a window at Castro’s home as if she needed help. When his sister looked up, she saw a woman and a baby standing in a window half covered with a wooden plank. His sister told him and Lugo called the police.

    Later, Lugo’s mother called the police because Ariel would park his school bus in front of their home and bring bags full of McDonald’s and drinks into his home. They wondered why he needed so much food. Police again responded but didn’t enter the home.

    A third call came from neighborhood women who lived in an apartment building. Those women told Lugo they called police because they saw three young girls crawling on all fours naked with dog leashes around their necks. Three men were controlling them in the back yard. The women told Lugo they waited two hours but police never responded to the calls.

    “I thought something was wrong because I got bad vibes from him,” Lugo, 39, a subcontractor, said. “I didn’t want to accuse someone falsely.”

      this story and the dr gosnell story are pretty good proof that evil lives

    • leslie says:

      I hope they rot in jail before the rot in hell.

    • yttik says:

      That is my worst nightmare, knowing that something is going on but the cops can’t/won’t do anything about it or I didn’t report it because I wasn’t 100% sure.

      I hate to call the cops. Somebody better be dying first. Where I live, you can forget about anonymous reporting, it’s so small around here, 911 can recognize my voice.

      • Constance says:

        Well the cops can’t just barge in and search. But if I saw naked women on leashes I would video it and take the video to police and I think that is what most people would do because it’s a hard thing to believe. Of course if it’s true it also guarantees Hollywood will make a movie of it rated PG13 of course!

    Are you implying Michelle is as phony as Kim Kardashian??

    Perish the thought. 🙂

    Irish WW2 soldiers who fought with the British finally get pardons.
    I remember having a conversation with a man I worked with about the subject of the Irish who fought with the English. To him England was the enemy. I guess I never really understood that.

    • yttik says:

      I always think of the English when somebody is bashing the US for being occupiers. No offense to the British! It’s just that when it comes to occupying and pillaging and plunder, they have a long and extensive track record.

      • HELENK says:

        my husband used to work in Irish bars. you have two different mindsets . One is the Irish Eyes are Smiling and the other is Wild Colonial Boy. I truly did not fully understand the hatred. Until I talked to the man I worked with and listened to him. Why the Irish stayed neutral in WW2. How in the Irish Free State an American soldier could walk in to a bar, but never an English soldier.

    A cadaver dog, along with various law enforcement officers, searched Ariel Castro’s #Cleveland home.

    When she was plugging the garden book on The View , she said out loud in front of goddess Baba Wawa and everyone ; in a VERY condescending tone , ” OH I don’t do THE DIGGING ” ,
    In other words , she doesn’t do the digging, the planting , the weeding or anything else a real gardener does ..She just strolls through in her high heels when someone has a camera .
