over the white house garden was short lived. The White House has receive a letter from the Mid America CropLife Association
, expressing disappointment
that Obamas planted an organic garden. "As you go about planning and planting the White House garden, we respectfully encourage you to recognize the role conventional agriculture plays in the U.S in feeding the ever-increasing population, contributing to the U.S. economy and providing a safe and economical food supply.
