Do It Together

DIT: Gardening with Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama shows us how to D.I.T. - Do It Together. With help from local schoolchildren, Michelle Obama harvested crops from her vegetable garden on the South Lawn, the first White House vegetable garden since World War II. The First Lady, known for her devotion to healthy eating habits and workouts, is growing 55 kinds of vegetables in the 1,100-square-foot garden, including spinach, broccoli, carrots, rhubarb, fennel, shell peas and more. One notable exception? Beets, which the president hates. The fruits and vegetables grown in the garden are used by White House chefs for both casual family dinners and more formal affairs.
 
Michelle Obama shows us how we can grow together. Obama and the fifth-graders planted the garden and start-up costs totaled just $200. Follow the first lady's lead and try planting a garden with your family on a budget. It's a great time for a little D.I.T. - Do-It-Together!
