[SOT/](michelle Obama/first lady)"We just harvested so some of these beds are new. This one is brand new because we had some of the kids back last week and they pulled this up. But we've got peppers coming up, we were just down here the other night showing the girl's godmother. We've got our green peppers coming up which was fascinating for the girls. i think this is what's really fun for kids because it's a real green pepper growing out of a plant. And i think this is what kids get really into. It's like they can see exactly where their food comes from and when it gets to this stage when its identifiable, it's very cool. Even my girls think it's cool which is another notion. We're a broccoli family so we have tons of broccoli. But many of the larger buds we pulled out of the harvest. You can see some of the smaller ones coming up. This broccoli has turned out to be pretty tender. This is where you can really tell the difference in store bought and fresh grown because while my kids like broccoli, the president loves it, this really has a sweeter taste to it in ways that i wouldn't have imagined. i think broccoli looks the same as what you buy in the store but there's definitely a difference in terms of texture and flavor.//this fig tree started out as a little plant. We planted it, nothing happened, it didn't produce anything. It was so small that a group of volunteers- i think somebody pulled it up. And one of the gardners found it in the compost. It was almost toast but it was saved and as you can see it's thriving. And this is the first season that we're actually getting figs. Barack loves figs so i'm hoping this is gonna be good.//welcome to our tomatoes. So you see they taste like candy, they're really good and i try to tell kids this all the time. when we have little kids out here and all of these are sorta ripe, you can sit here and pop them. sometimes our volunteers will eat them all up before we get them in because they taste so good. but that's one of the teaching moments of the garden is that food fresh from the garden has a different kind of flavor, it's different from what you buy in teh store. kids are a little more adventorous at the notion that they can pull something off a leaf and eat it and it tastes familiar to them. it's cool to me so it's pretty nice for them"(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: angie---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: AP-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: yes ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: none ----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): none --------------------------------
