White House chef preps and plugs winter garden
By Jane Black in The Post's All We Can Eat blog:
On Wednesday the White House released a video of Kass and Department of Agriculture officials readying the South Lawn garden for winter. A group of what appear to be a dozen volunteers set up hoop houses – a kind of temporary green house – in which staff will grow cold-weather greens for the White House table. The group also plant a cover crop of rye, which will help protect and enrich the soil during the cold months.
Kass's official title is White House food initiative coordinator. But he also serves as one of Washington's top heartthrobs. By introducing the video, which was filmed Dec. 4, he will not doubt attract thousands of viewers that your average USDA video can't.
