Did Michelle Obama Inspire Queen Elizabeth To Plant Veggies?

queenIn a move that hasn’t happened since World War II, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has planted an organic vegetable garden on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The patch includes beans, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, beetroots, potatoes, and more — all grown without chemicals and using traditional methods to deter pests.

Vogue is wondering whether Michelle Obama’s organic White House garden (which had its first harvest this week) may have been an inspiration to the Queen — especially as the two women have grown close with multiple visits over the past few months. Either way — how cool is it to have so many families doing the same thing? I can’t remember a year when “home gardening” was such a buzz word.

But back to Michelle Obama’s garden — Matt Drudge, editor of the blog Drudge Report, earlier this week accused the First Lady of “faking” her vegetable garden — saying there’s no way she could have harvested plants that fast. Seriously? We’re now going after the White House garden?

Thankfully, one conservative stepped in to set Drudge straight saying that a little googling on the growth rate of Michelle’s plants would have saved him from “making a complete ass out of himself.”

Happy growing!

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
