While Michelle is hugging the Queen and otherwise stunning the Brits (see here). Who's getting the kids out into the garden and planting those seeds? Time is slipping fast; a day lost now is forever gone.
By way of comparison, our (i.e., wife's) peas, lettuce, onion sets, radishes, etc. have sprouted and we're probably 10 days behind the White House. If their peas aren't planted and showing by now, it's going to be tough on them--our weather gets hot. Or maybe the Obamas are like so many in our community plots--an early burst of enthusiasm followed by distractions. Like the Queen.
