Things must be bad in Pennsylvania if Gov. Ed Rendell is planting vegetables in the back of the Governor's Mansion.
I know the state is $3.2 billion in the hole, but has it come to this, Ed?
The governor who somehow made $8 billion in new spending disappear over the past six years is urging Pennsylvania residents to plant a home garden so they can feed themselves ... especially if Rendell and House Democrats get their way and raise taxes to get out of the current fiscal mess they created.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture announced today that 11 state FFA students planted the garden on the south side of the Governor's Mansion grounds in Harrisburg. The garden includes tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, squash, cabbage, carrots, broccoli and other vegetables along with a variety of herbs and flowers.
Mmmm ... that's mighty good eating.
I still think it's a prelude of tougher times to come. Nobody will be able to afford to eat in Pennsylvania if Rendell raises taxes, so a home garden makes sense.
