I'm staying local on this one. If you want to eat tomatoes in January, think ahead this summer and do a little home canning.
3. Hoop Dreams. Snowmaggedon was no match for the White House garden this winter. While the rest of the city fell prey to Jack Frost's wintry wiles, an army of hoophouses dutifully protected and shielded the garden's bounty. Check out this video from The White House - it has some really great time-lapsed footage of snow falling in the garden.
And speaking of hoops, back in December the USDA announced a new pilot project to study hoop houses as a season extension - part of their "Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food" initiative.
