Yee Ha! Someone pinch me because I cannot believe I am witnessing the Food Revolution on such a high-profile, celebrity scale. The First Family has placed small hoop houses -- think easy portable greenhouses -- on the lawn of THE White House so they can enjoy fresh vegetables all winter long.
Let the healing begin: this is just what our nation, and our planet has been hungry for. MORE home-grown food production, and less dependence on foreign soil for our most basic need.
We're talking REAL homeland security.
Thanks to Sam Kass, Kathleen Merrigan, the Obamas and all those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this happen and to provide inspiration to those of us with much smaller lawns or even no lawns at all. Roger Doiron, I'm talking about YOU.
Gardening into the winter? Why YES WE CAN!
Think critically and eat well!
