First Lady Michelle Obama’s White House garden has become more popular than she ever imagined. The Associated Press reported that the South Lawn garden has foreign dignitaries even asking about it when they visit the White House.
Mrs. Obama has used the garden to speak about childhood obesity and the good that can come of eating fresh food.
Now the garden is protected for the cold winter months, with a temporary greenhouse to help keep crops like carrots and spinach fresh as the temperature drops. Obama’s efforts have also inspired others to start gardens of their own.
