We have just witnessed the inauguration of a new US President, troubled, not knowing what lies ahead. What this election has shown (among many other things that are thankfully being talked about, too) is that although so many people outside the US are affected by the outcome of the election, they did not have a vote. I am among them and I am glad to say we do at least have an opinion and a voice. So within the thematic limits of this blog, I would like to point out another wonderful project that has blossomed while the Obama family resided at the white house, namely the White House Kitchen Garden. And even if this garden is not being taken care of any longer (which I do not hope will happen), we can at least have our little share of a kitchen garden ourselves – in our gardens, on our balconies or even inside our kitchens.
