Does anyone remember what a Victory Garden used to be?
From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_garden: Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit and herb gardens planted at private residences in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia 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. Making victory gardens became a part of daily life on the home front.
These days, the PBS show "Victory Garden" website says: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/victorygarden/show/index.html
With so many Americans aspiring to care for the environment and create their own outdoor living spaces, The Victory Garden's unique fusion of garden design, earth-to-table cooking, and eco-conscious how-to tips is of greater interest today than ever before in its more than 30-year history.
I've tried watching the show and it very rarely discusses edible plants. Can I just say.... why doesn't it actually tell us more about how to best garden in our yards like what a Victory Garden is supposed to be?
