Presidential Gardening Wisdom

Among the vegetable plants and bushes of the White House kitchen garden, this plaque resides featuring a gardening pearl of wisdom from one of our nation's most innovative gardeners and President of the United States -- Thomas Jefferson.
...the failure of one thing repaired by the success of another; and instead of one harvest, a continued one throughout the year.
Here's another presidential garden-related pearl of wisdom from our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln:
We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
Got to keep looking for the roses in the thorn bushes, instead of focusing on the rose's thorns.
