I like calling this our Victory Garden. It makes me feel like I am linking up with family who have passed on. Here is a little history lesson on the Victory Garden from Wikipedia.
Victory gardens, also called war gardens or food gardens for defense, were vegetable, fruit, and herb gardens planted at private residences and public parks in theUnited States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Germany during World War I and World War II. They were used along with Rationing Stamps and Cards to reduce pressure on the public food supply. Besides 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 a part of daily life on the home front.
Here are some more photos of the garden. We have raised beds, just a few, but enough for the two of us and I know we will have plenty to share.
