Michelle Obama Shows Off Her Green Thumb

Michelle Obama Shows Off Her Green Thumb

Michelle Obama greets fifth graders from Bancroft Elementary on Wednesday (October 20) to the White House in Washington, D.C.

The 46-year-old First Lady and local students picked produce for the White House Kitchen Garden Fall Harvest, including a 4-pound sweet potato!

After harvesting the veggies, the elementary schoolers washed, sliced and diced veggies into a garden salad that they enjoyed later that afternoon.

The White House garden has produced 1600 pounds of food so far this year and feeds the First Family as well as White House guests.

FYI: Michelle is wearing Tory Burch Connell boots.

    Look at Michelle getting dirty with those pumkins and interacting with the kids, it looks so cute. And she genuinely looks like she enjoy being in that atmosphere. Good for her and a great way to set the standards of what most parents should be doing.

    @Anthony: Perfectly stated.

    Michelle Obama is a great role model and the facts about the garden were actually very interesting. She does so much that sometimes it seems like too much, but hopefully she’s enjoying herself.

    This woman is too smart and strong to be gardening and she knows it but since Hillary Clinton was hated by America for having the audacity of being a vocal professional now every First Lady is a gloried housewife.
