     This month's newsletter is about Victory Gardens... a little bivictory gardent of a history lesson and why you should consider starting your own Victory Garden today. Victory Gardens were promoted by the US Government back during World War II due to food rationing, labor shortages, and transportation problems. There was not enough fresh fruits and vegetables to go around. So... over 20 million Victory Gardens were planted resulting in 9-10 million tons of fresh produce during the war years.

     After the war was over, people stopped planting gardens. There were some shortages the first year or two, but eventually the markets were full of fresh produce again. And things have been relatively the same ever since. But there are reasons why you may want to consider planting your own Victory Garden in these uncertain times...


     If this is not enough to convince you to plant your own Victory Garden, then I don't know what is! Victory Gardens can be planted just about anywhere... your yard, vacant lots, rooftops, etc. If you don't know how to go about it, I have put together a collectorganic gardening ebookion of 9 eBooks that will tell you everything you need to know and then some.
