white house garden

Would you believe that the White House garden continued to produce throughout this year’s harsh D.C. winter?

Even with several feet of snow blanketing the area, a winter planting of lettuces, spinach, turnips, arugula and carrots managed to yield almost 50lbs of food! The White House achieved this by planting under hoop houses covered in plastic. During the day, they capture the sun’s energy, which in turn keep the plants from freezing at night.

Also revealed are plans that Michelle Obama is expanding the organic beds to include even more veggies for this year’s crop. Perhaps we’ll see some of the bounty at the “White House” Farmer’s Market? Check out the new video below:
