White House vegetable garden
In this video produced by the White House and posted on AOL, First Lady Michelle Obama and assistant White House chef Sam Kass discuss the origins and the goals of the first White House vegetable garden since Eleanor Roosevelt planted hers during World War II. Mrs. Obama said the idea for the garden began as a way to change the eating habits and the food decisions of her family. It has since exploded both in terms if impact and imitation. The video also shows time-lapse photos of the garden over several months - giving lie to all those rumors that the garden was "faked."
