Victory Garden

I love the concept of victory gardens — in times of hardship, the government encouraging citizens to grow their own fruits and vegetables. Here are few links to find out more about victory gardens, past and present:

I love the idea of a garden, however small or large. My dad used to put in a small garden by the side of the house. Along the side of the vegetables he would string a trellis for sweetpeas to grow every year. To this day sweetpeas are one of my favorite flowers. They remind me of my father. It was so nice to see you Krista this past weekend. Good luck on all your new endeavors.

Amy:

It's so nice to see you blogging again, Krista!

California was way ahead of that movement with local gardens well before the economic meltdown!

Krista,
Love this entry! I decided last year that I'd plant a vegie garden in 2009. Marta gave me the idea to use big BIG pots on my patio - perfetto! Your Victory Garden links look interesting - thanks!

Very cool entry! This is definitely an area where I am doing zero. Not even some tomatoes on the balcony...

Krista, I like the idea of victory gardens too.

Most of us don't know how to grow our own food any more. (I'm afraid I really don't...) But we've stayed with friends who grow a good amount of their own food, and it was so much fun to get much of the meal from the garden or orchard.
