Dig On For Victory

I love these Vintage WWII “Victory Garden” Propaganda Posters.

It seems like gardens are back to being popular of us this year.. how patriotic of us.

Victory gardens: also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany during World War I and World War II to reduce the pressure on the public food supply brought on by the war effort. In addition to indirectly aiding the war effort these gardens were also considered a civil “morale booster” — in that gardeners could feel empowered by their contribution of labor and rewarded by the produce grown. This made victory gardens become a part of daily life on the home front.

This is pretty awesome: It’s a victory garden planted inside a bomb crater in London during WWII.

  1. I even spotted 2 new magazines at the local stores devoted to canning. Times are changing.

  2. I love this – and I love that canning photo. I’ve been canning for a couple of years and Joel is DYING to get a garden planted again. We did a little potted garden this year. Go America!
