Is that the first lady? Digging in the dirt?

Sure is! A couple weeks ago Michelle Obama and a bunch of students started working on the White House garden. It's going to be all organic and the whole family's gonna help plant and weed. It'll have flowers and veggies too, so the Obamas can eat healthy and very local. But they're also going to donate some of the harvest to a kitchen that feeds homeless people.

It's good exercise. And Dad says its therapeutic or something like that. Anyway, Michelle Obama wants everyone to see how important it is to eat healthy vegetables and grow organic stuff. That's something everyone can do. Want to know what she's planting? Look at her garden plans. That reminds me, we should start working on our veggie garden too!
