Students help first lady harvest White House garden
WASHINGTON - Sweet potatoes, carrots and peanuts are some of the crunchy edibles coming out of Michelle Obama's White House garden.
Students from four District of Columbia schools helped the first lady with Tuesday's fall harvest. Afterward, some of the produce went into a chicken vegetable salad they ate for lunch.
Mrs. Obama wielded a pitchfork to show some youngsters how to dig up the sweet potatoes that grew in raised beds on the South Lawn.
The first lady started the vegetable garden in her first year at the White House to open a national conversation about health and wellness.
The garden led to "Let's Move," her initiative to combat childhood obesity.
Google recorded Tuesday's harvest for a program that provides guided virtual tours for schools.
