The First Lady is also the nation's "First Gardener", and she now has a book to prove it. Chronicling the creation of a "kitchen garden" on the lawn of the White House, the reportedly well-written and highly personal book, recounts all the challenges Michelle Obama and her staff faced in reaching the first harvest. The planting project was one the novice gardener undertook to help promote healthy, veggie-rich diets for Americans. Its all part of Obama's important fight against childhood obesity.

Here's a link to buy the book. I just ordered mine!
