      I saw the White House kitchen staff harvesting from this garden on the NBC News Special. It certainly made me smile to see it, and I can well imagine how pleased the children of Bancroft were.

      If the Whitehouse is truly going green, they should put solar panels back up on the roof.

      I love how down to earth and approachable Mrs. Obama is, especially with children.

      There isn't anything better than doing something special with children while they are playing in the dirt.

      Great effort!
