The first lady, looking like one of the more chic farmers in the world, today broke ground at the White House for a kitchen garden that will be planted later this spring and provide vegetables, berries and herbs to her home's inhabitants, and maybe even guests. The Post's Jane Black was on the scene and has the full story here.
