Description
In April 2009, First Lady Michelle Obama planted a kitchen garden on the South Lawn of the White House. In this beautifully illustrated book she invites us behind the scenes at the White House Garden and discusses its progress from the first planting to the latest harvest. Along with the worries of a novice gardener, she describes her struggles and her joys as lettuce, corn, tomatoes, collards and kale, sweet potatoes, and rhubarb flourished in the freshly tilled soil. She gives us recipes created by White House chefs that take full advantage of freshly picked produce, and lessons from the Kitchen Garden team about how you can help plant your own backyard, school, or community garden. Mrs. Obama also shares the stories of other such gardens that have moved and inspired her: in Houston, office workers have planted sidewalk blooms; a New York City school hosts a scented garden for the visually impaired; and a North Carolina garden devotes its entire harvest to those in need.
