The White House Kitchen Garden

30 Dec

This article has some great information about the First Lady’s garden and its somewhat-recently installed hoop houses.

This garden is every cook/gardener’s dream…there are fresh ingredients year round (thanks to the hoop houses), a third of the harvest is donated to a local food bank and it provides an outdoor classroom to help kids and (and adults) understand the importance and simplicity of growing their own food.

Have you ever grown anything in a hoop house? It sounds like an excellent way to keep cool weather crops on your plate all winter long.
