There’s a new vegetable garden located at the back of Buckingham Palace’s 40 acres of gardens. It’s the first time since World War II that a vegetable garden has been grown on the grounds of the palace.

The queen’s garden will include onions, leaks, corn, carrots, strawberries and the blue queen green bean – a rare and endangered seed. According to a video on Good Morning America, the garden is organic. The video below, however, shows Claire Midgley, deputy gardens manager for the palace, saying they are doing it is “organically as possible.”

So far it looks as if the food grown in the garden will end up in the palace kitchens -- the first strawberries have already gone up and been used.
