FLOTUS Plants Last Garden in Boss Gloves

On Tuesday, for the eighth year in a row, Michelle Obama planted the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn. The annual tradition started in 2009, which helped launch a conversation about healthy eating and ultimately the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative.

In 2011, Mrs. Obama began another trend– wearing Boss garden gloves! After President Obama gifted the First Lady a pair of green Boss® Dirt Diggers™, they quickly became her garden glove of choice. The First Lady also went on to write about the gloves in her book American Grown describing the green color as a cheery reminder of spring.
