First Lady Michelle Obama is writing a book about the White House vegetable garden, Publishers Weekly reports today. She's taking no advance for the as-yet-unnamed book, which is scheduled to be published April of 2012. She'll donate proceeds from the book to a charity--so far, unnamed.

Obesity --particularly childhood obesity--nutrition, and health have long been issues of hers, and the vegetable garden that she and a group of schoolchildren planted on the South Lawn in 2009 was the first veggie patch at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt's WWII Victory Garden.
