Victory Garden booklets sent in by Creig Crippen
Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008
Do You Know that you can search just the 700 pages of Military Records on the site by using the Military button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page
In World War One, home raising and preserving of food was publicized as a solution to make more resources available to the military and to the war effort. It was widely practiced throughout the nation, both in rural areas and in cities and villages as well. One article tells of Victory Gardens planted in the right of ways of the railroad tracks. Every bit of food that the citizenry could raise for themselves and by themselves helped reduce the burden on the rest of the infrastructure. The booklets from which these illustrations were scanned give directions on growing and preserving garden fruits and vegetables by a variety of methods. they promote patriotism and the war effort as reasons for doing so. They are actually still useful to today's home gardener. If any of you have stories you'd like included about Victory Gardens, please send them to me for inclusion on this page.
