I've failed to keep up with the White House garden. Maintenance on it was shut down during the government shutdown in November. They've had a harvest of fall vegetables, installed some hoop houses, and now are facing ice and snow as the storm moves through. Don't remember whether they did hoop houses last year. A few of our fellow gardeners in the community garden are using hoop houses; my wife and I aren't.
The swiss chard won't last through a hard freeze being outside a hoop house; the kale will be fine for spring. Not sure what she means by the rosemary being gone--that should survive the winter. Cilantro will be okay in the spring before it bolts.
