June 6th, D-Day… in honor of all those how gave the ultimate sacrifice and those that sacrificed at home, we will NEVERFORGET. We will continue to grow as much food for ourselves as we are able… and extra to share with our neighbors.
Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks during World War I and World War II …used to reduce pressure on the public food supply.
Around one-third of the vegetables produced by the United States were from victory gardens. 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.
Won’t you consider starting a garden?
