Michelle Obama's Garden is Growing

First Lady Michelle Obama wants to garden, and nothing can stop her, not even a couple feet of snow.

The White House chefs just got done with their spring harvest. Over the winter, the White House’s garden grew close to 50 lbs of its own turnips, spinach, lettuce, arugula, and carrots by using small, temporary “hoop houses,” which acted like greenhouses by trapping sunlight and protecting the plants from the elements. Remember snowmageddon?

But that’s not all. Michelle plans to expand the garden to plant even more for the summer season. Can’t wait to see what they can grow by fall! Check out the new White House video featuring the garden:

    Did she find funding from the USDA to do it? Probably not.. Small Certified Organic Farms must be self funded because we are too small to worry about. We have to sell land to fund our process.
