Kitchen garden on White House fall tour

2012_1013_WHGardenTour

Washington residents Chuck Rohe and Isobel Ellis were among the thousands who visited the White House gardens on Saturday, including First Lady Michelle Obama’s kitchen garden. The number visiting the kitchen garden was so large that a walkway was installed so that the grass would not be damaged. A volunteer tour guide said that the walkway is put down occasionally when there are large tours. In previous years, the first lady has hosted school children for an October harvest, but she is not holding the harvest event this year because she is on the campaign trail, Obamafoodorama reported. The tours will be held again this Saturday and Sunday. (Jerry Hagstrom/The Hagstrom Report)
